When people get behind the wheels of vehicles, they need to be able to make many different decisions between the location in which they start and their destination.

Drivers who are attempting to make a right turn from one street onto another need to keep in mind that even though they are usually turning with a green light, there could be pedestrians who are using that same green light to cross that street. This is especially true in places like the Theatre District, where people are out walking around at almost all times of the day. Unfortunately, something went very wrong yesterday when the driver of a dump truck hit and killed a pedestrian. To make matters worse, the driver fled the scene, turning the entire situation into a Manhattan hit-and-run accident. The driver was subsequently found and arrested.

When people visualize car accidents, they typically think of two vehicles colliding for some reason. When people think about the lawsuits that can arise because of injuries sustained in a car accident, they generally think of someone in one vehicle suing the driver of another vehicle to recover the losses they have incurred. While these situations obviously arise often, there are other types of lawsuits that can be filed after car accidents, including those that involve only one vehicle. These lawsuits are generally filed by passengers who have been injured because of crashes caused by negligent or reckless drivers.

Fatal traffic accidents can occur at any time and in any place, and that's a fact even though many people would assume that certain areas are safer than others. One of those areas that people may think is safe is near a hospital, for if anything does happen, medical help is minutes if not seconds away. Tragically, a man lost his life just outside of a hospital last night in a Manhattan pedestrian accident. He was on his way there to visit a patient. Police are still investigating the matter.

When a child is diagnosed with cerebral palsy, that child will face a lifetime of challenges and specific needs. Parents who give birth to a child who ultimately receives this diagnosis also face a lifetime of stress, worry and extra work to make sure that their child is being properly nurtured. This level of parenting involves many things that parents of children who do not have cerebral palsy do not have to face. Unfortunately, if even one of those ‘extra’ things is overlooked or misjudged, a child with cerebral palsy can suffer significantly, only adding stress to the overall situation.
