new-york-lawyer-road-rage

Since many of us are still driving less due to the pandemic, we have forgotten how common road rage (or aggressive driving) has become both locally and elsewhere in the United States.  Instead of maturely working through our unresolved frustrations, too many of us keep expressing our pent-up anger while driving – often overreacting to the minor traffic offenses of others. Last summer, a 26-year-old man in Brooklyn died after being shot in the torso during a road rage incident. That tragic event unfolded while a shooter, traveling in a black SUV, and the other driver was taking Exit 1 off...

Large Truck Accident Statistics

When it comes to deaths in large truck accidents, the deaths are usually to people in passenger vehicles. This is because people in these smaller vehicles are vulnerable. Trucks can weigh up to 30 times as much as normal care. They are also taller and have larger ground clearance which means that the smaller vehicles can get stuck underneath the truck in crashes.
