Auto Accident Case Settled for Full Policy

This past week, I had the opportunity to settle a case on behalf of one of our clients.  The client was a pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle in Brooklyn, while crossing the street.  Our client suffered a broken arm which required surgery and plates and screws to fix.  I settled the case for the full limits of the driver's insurance policy.

Premises Liability Case Against Casino Dismissed

I read in the law journal today about a premises liability case that was recently dismissed. The plaintiff was a woman who tripped over a wheelchair as she was getting up from a slot machine at a casino. The wheelchair was pulled off to the side, with the wheels partly jutting out into the isle where the woman was seated. The wheel chair was not owned by the casino. The Court found that the casino wasn't liable because it didn't place the wheelchair there, or had any notice that it was there.

Auto Accidents as Art

There is an artist in Denmark, Nicolai Howlat, who has recently published a series of works called "Car Crash Studies."  Mr. Howalt went to a police station and photographed cars damaged and destroyed in auto accidents.  The result is a series of pictures which are haunting and poignant in their depiction of the violence and power of auto accidents.
