New Video FAQ: Why are elderly people more susceptible to injuries?

In a new video, New York City personal injury attorney John Blyth of Hach & Rose, LLP discusses reasons why elderly people are at a higher risk of sustaining injuries.

Reduced strength and reflexes combined with weakened bones means that an older person is more likely to fall down, and at an increased risk of suffering a serious injury if they do.

When nursing homes fail to take these amplified dangers into account, their patients may be hurt in completely preventable accidents. If your loved one sustained an injury while in the care of a nursing home, call the nursing home negligence lawyers of Hach & Rose, LLP at (212) 779-0057 to discuss the situation with an attorney.

NYC court holds city liable for neglecting to implement ‘traffic calming measures’

A statement issued by the New York City-based non-profit organization Transportation Alternatives said, “The New York high court just ruled that the city can be held liable for failing to study and implement traffic calming measures, which the jury determined were a major contributing factor to the crash. In a 2004 incident, the driver was traveling at 54 miles per hour on Gerritsen Avenue, which had a speed limit of 30 mph.”

Experts testified during the trial that it was known among traffic engineers that straight, wide roads that lack pedestrian-friendly features encourage speeding because drivers feel more comfortable on roadways with those characteristics. New York’s highest court said “the design characteristics of a roadway influence driver speed, and that people generally drive faster on wide, straight roadways, regardless of the posted speed limit.

Long Island Man Kills One in Car Accident After Attempting to Flee Police

Long Island man, William Billups, is being charged with second-degree manslaughter and other charges after his passenger died in a traffic accident while he was trying to escape police.

Roughly five minutes before the accident occurred, Billups was found speeding by police in Roosevelt. Police directed Billups to pull over for a routine traffic stop, but once both vehicles were off the road, Billups waited until the police officer exited his patrol car before speeding away. After about ten blocks, Billups ran a stop sign and collided with another vehicle, sending both cars into the front yard of a neighboring house. All three people from the two vehicles involved in the accident were hospitalized and Billup’s passenger passed away shortly thereafter.

William Billups is currently on parole and has been arrested over 20 times for various offenses including felony robbery.
