E-cigarettes and vaporizers have become incredibly popular. They have been advertised as a healthier way to smoke tobacco or even quit smoking altogether.
However, many manufacturers use cheap parts, have poor designs, and other safety issues. Hach & Rose, LLP, has taken on a client who was hurt by such a safety issue, and has filed lawsuits against numerous vaporizer manufacturers.
Despite these problems, vape makers have increased production, creating a significant safety risk for the people who buy and use these smoking devices.

Earlier this week, emergency dispatch received a phone call from a four-year-old New Jersey girl reporting that her father had passed out while operating a motor vehicle.
The young girl made the call after her father had stopped the car containing both of them and proceeded to pass out. When officers arrived on scene around 9:30 p.m., they discovered the father, Jamil Graham, intoxicated and in possession of a half-empty bottle of vodka. Graham later failed field sobriety tests and was later arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
Thankfully, no one was injured as the result of the careless acts of the father though it is unimaginable how afraid the child must have been after seeing her father pass out. Even though it was a holiday weekend, drinking responsibly is still necessary – especially when there are young children involved.

Despite federal laws mandating positive train control systems, New Jersey Transit never installed this crucial safety technology on a single railway.
In the wake of yesterday’s fatal train accident, in which one person was killed and 100 more were injured, attorney Mark Sokoloff revisits information he shared concerning train safety last year. As a function of a train’s sheer size, accidents involving them are devastating. This certainly played a role in yesterday’s Hoboken accident, which could possibly have been prevented with the use of positive train control systems. Read Mark’s full article, Enforcement of Rail Safety Improvement Act Necessary in Wake of Train Tragedy for more information.

A train filled with rush hour commuters collided into the Hoboken train station this morning. At least one person in dead, and more than 100 are injured following this tragic train accident involving a busy commuter train.
Survivors of the crash report that they did not feel the train coming to a stop as it approached the terminal, which is the end of the line. The train smashed into the building, part of which collapsed on one of the train’s front cars, where most of the injuries presumably occurred. The collapsed structure is making it challenging for first responders to reach the injured. New York City is sending a ‘mass casualty unit,’ which is similar to an ambulance that can carry as many as 30 injured victims.
Reports indicate that this particular train was a shorter one, meaning more people were packed into each car. The two front cars were particularly full because they provide quick access to other transport, such as ferries or other trains.
It is too early to determine the exact cause of this devastating train accident. The leading theories at this time for the train’s crash are that it was an accident or an error on the operator’s part. We will follow this story as it develops.
The daughter of American civil rights activist Al Sharpton, 30-year-old Dominique Sharpton, settled a personal injury lawsuit in 2012 against Bronx-based trucking company Roslyn Leasing Inc. for an undisclosed amount.
Allegedly, the accident caused Sharpton to incur “debilitating headaches” as well as tears to ligaments and tendons in her leg. She asked for $13,000 in compensation to cover her medical bills and $8,000 on top of that for lost wages.
This incident could help the City of New York show her sprained right ankle from an October 2014 slip and fall on a cracked road on Broome Street was aggravated by the injuries she sustained in the 2012 accident. Roslyn Leasing initially tried to blame Sharpton for the accident before deciding to settle the case. In this recent case, if the City of New York can show Sharpton’s 2014 injuries were merely the result of her 2012 fall, the city may be off the hook on the $5 million claim.

A Bronx Supreme Court jury in New York awarded $2,500,000 to James Register, who slipped and fell over a 2-inch rise in the sidewalk in front of 1890 Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. Register incurred multiple fractures to his nose and suffered from a concussion as a result of his fall.
The defendants, KNW Apartment LLC and Urban American Management, LLC, were already issued a citation three years ago by the City of New York, which ordered them to make proper repairs to the defect. Fixing the defect would have cost the companies a mere $18,000. A different victim tripped over the same sidewalk rise in 2015 and was also hurt, though that victim sustained less extreme injuries.

Rosemary Thomas recently filed a lawsuit against the chain of fried chicken fast food restaurants Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen after she found a rat head in her chicken meal. The incident occurred at a Popeyes branch on West 145th Street in Albany, New York.
Thomas posted a picture of the chicken with the rat head on her Facebook page. She also mentioned that her daughter was hospitalized due to vomiting after eating there. New York personal injury lawyer Paul Aljouny has taken up Thomas’ case. He said during a press conference in his Long Island office on Thursday, September 15: “We’re going to allow them to take a part of the body to test it, but what are they going to find? It’s a rat. There’s nothing to test. There’s a head, arms, legs, and tail.” For her part, Popeyes spokeswoman Renee Kopkowski said the object is merely organ meat from a chicken.

One of Samsung’s newest phone models, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, is earning a bad reputation after it exploded on Saturday, September 10, in the hands of a six-year-old in Brooklyn, New York. The boy was at home watching videos on the phone in East Flatbush when the incident occurred.
The boy was taken to Downstate Medical Center shortly before 8 p.m. that night for the immediate treatment of the burns he incurred during the explosion. Samsung has asked Galaxy Note 7 owners to return the product as soon as possible to avoid other instances of explosion, since over the past few weeks there have been 30 confirmed cases of Note 7 explosions that have caused fires in cars and houses, and personal injury to people through burns.

In a ruling issued last Tuesday, August 30, Nassau County Supreme Court Justice Leonard Steinman wrote in Waldman v. Sangiray that Engin Sangiray, the owner of a two-year-old Siberian Husky – a supposedly non-violent creature – that allegedly jumped on 82-year-old Jacqueline Waldman, may be liable for her injuries.
According to court documents, Waldman was walking with her three-year-old grandson in Hewlett Harbor, New York on June 8, 2012, when Sangiray’s Siberian Husky came up to them and placed its paws on her shoulder as they passed by Sangiray’s house.
Waldman claims that the dog named Louie tipped her over, causing her to roll over on her back, and that, at some point, the dog bit her on the arm. Due to the incident, Waldman filed a personal injury lawsuit against Sangiray, who moved for summary judgment, arguing that there had no previous evidence of the dog injuring or biting anyone in the past.
