Hach & Rose, LLP, shares must know info about fusion surgery

Recently, Hach & Rose, LLP, shared critical information regarding the benefits of fusion surgery. This surgery, which is often conducted on the spine, neck, or ankle, is often necessary to relieving people of day-to-day pains or providing them with greater mobility and function.

Furthermore, because of the serious injuries that victims of accidents such as construction accidents, car accidents, or slip and falls sustain, fusion surgeries are often critical. Unfortunately, these surgeries can be quite expensive, making it difficult for a person to cover the full cost.

Fortunately, people who need these surgeries as a result of an injury caused by another person’s negligence can often get the costs of the surgery covered through a personal injury claim, something our lawyers at Hach & Rose, LLP, have had great success with.

Don’t wait to seek legal advice after an accident

Many people fail to seek legal action after being involved in an accident, potentially costing them a great deal of much-needed money. Because many people are often more injured than they initially believe and insurance companies make an effort to get statements as soon as possible, failing to enlist legal support immediately after an accident can be extremely costly, as the amount of money victims should be owed can diminish overtime.

If you’ve been involved in an accident in New York due to someone else’s negligent actions, our lawyers at Hach & Rose, LLP, urge you to speak with an attorney as soon as possible to evaluate your situation and options. Call us at (212) 779-0057 today.


The dangers of driving while using a cell phone

As far as car accidents go, many people assume that drunk driving is the most dangerous behavior people can commit behind the wheel; however, the reality is that using a cellphone, particularly texting while driving, can be just as dangerous. Unfortunately, according to the governor’s office, New York saw a 143% increase of car accidents related to cell phone usage while driving from 2005-2011.

With the continued increase of our usage of technology and the increasing dependence on it, texting while driving or talking on a cell phone is only becoming more of an issue. In an attempt to deter drivers from committing this dangerous act or to more seriously punish those who choose to engage in it, the state of New York enacted a law that makes using handheld electronic devices at all an offense. Governor Andrew Cuomo has also enacted legislation aimed at lowering distracted driving by increasing the penalties for texting and driving to $50 to $150 for first time offenders, $50 up to $200 for second time offenders, and $50 up to $400 for third or subsequent offenders.

Drivers who decide to recklessly text while driving are estimated to be 23.2 times more at risk of becoming involved in a car accident than others who drive more safely.

First Toyota’s “bellwether” sudden acceleration trial commences

The first “bellwether case,” filed against Toyota by the family of Noriko Uno, who died in August 2009, began on Monday, July 22, with the selection of jurors. The family is suing  Toyota for product liability and negligence and seeks general and punitive damages.

Toyota, however, has stated that Uno’s Camry was not malfunctioning, but rather blamed the crash on stuck accelerators, floor mats that trapped the gas pedal, and drivers’ lack of oversight, saying that “a brake override system would not have prevented this accident”.

Uno was killed when her car unexpectedly sped up to 100 miles per hour and crashed into a median, a telephone pole, and a tree.

Bill seeking higher penalties for abandoning a hit and run scene passes New York Senate

The New York State Senate has passed a bill that allows greater fines and penalties to be meted out to people who will leave the scene of a vehicular accident.

The bill introduced by Ken LaValle increases prison time for a hit and run to a maximum of 15 years in prison by changing the offense to a Class C felony. Fines, too, will also automatically increase.

The current law puts hit and run offenses under a Class A misdemeanor for first-time offenders, meaning they can be charged with up to a maximum of one year imprisonment. On the other hand, if the perpetrator of a vehicular accident chooses to remain at the scene but is found to be impaired by alcohol or narcotics, the offense will automatically be upgraded to a Class E misdemeanor, meaning the suspect can get up to a maximum of four years of imprisonment.

Suffering through the repercussions of a hit and run accident can be difficult, and our legal team at Hach & Rose, LLP, can help you through this. Learn more about obtaining compensation after going through such an accident by calling (212) 779-0057.


Hit-and-run on Northway injures two

In late February, two people that were pulled over to assess a problem with their car were slightly injured after a car passed by them out on the Northway in Malta, hitting their automobile.

New York State Police Sgt. John Phelps said 26-year-old Ashley Shell and Cody Thivierge of Ballston Lake and Corinth, respectively, had pulled over on the curb between exits 11 and 12 of the Northway at around 6 p.m. when a vehicle sideswiped them. It was not known exactly whether they were in or outside the vehicle, Phelps added.

They were brought to the Saratoga Hospital for immediate treatment of their minor wounds.

Ballston Spa resident Patricia LaRosa, 42, reported to the police that she was the driver who sideswiped the victims’ vehicle, albeit only after reaching her destination. According to Phelps, LaRosa claimed that she was sneezing and, as a result, failed to notice that she already struck a vehicle.
