e-scooter accident lawyer

Even before the pandemic, electric bikes (or e-bikes) and scooters had become very popular in New York and elsewhere around the country.

What To Do After Degloving Injuries In Motorcycle Accidents

lawyer-degloving-injury-nyc

Many motorcyclists dread degloving accident injuries about as much as fractured bones and minor forms of head trauma. This is because when degloving occurs, the rider’s top skin layers are often ripped free from all the underlying connective tissues, muscles, and bones. In addition, life-threatening blood clots can occur during this process – that can affect any body part covered with skin. In most cases, a motorcycle rider’s legs, unprotected arms, and hands, torso, face (and scalp) can be degloved. Clients who were not wearing thick gloves and sturdy boots sometimes suffer degloving damage to their fingers and feet. The following...

Bus Accident lawyer new york

A 7-year-old boy riding a battery-powered motorized scooter was killed after being struck by an MTA bus crash in the Bronx on May 26th, 2018, police say. The child was struck on East 184th St. and Webster Avenue in Fordham Heights around 3:30 pm. The child was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The sidewalk is behind a building, so it created a blind spot for the bus...
