Accident on the Cross Bronx Expressway kills three

A tragic accident on the Cross Bronx Expressway has left several people injured and three dead. The accident happened in the early morning hours on a day in late December and started when a semi truck came to a stop in the middle lane because of traffic. That's when another big rig failed to stop, slamming into the first 18-wheeler and starting a chain reaction that hit three other vehicles.

One of those vehicles was a Ford pick-up that became wedged under the second 18-wheeler. There were five men in that vehicle and three died at the scene of the crash. The other two, along with passengers from a Corolla and the second big rig were rushed to a nearby hospital to receive treatment.

Any injury suffered by a baby during childbirth is called a birth injury. If a child loses its life during labor or pregnancy, you might be able to sue the hospital. In some cases, the injury or death is because of natural causes that cannot be controlled by the doctor. But if you believe that the injury took place because of negligence from your healthcare provider, you have every right to file a complaint.

 

New York law on nursing home elder abuse

Sometimes you cannot help but take an elderly loved one to a nursing home, especially when they need specialized care. The nursing home parts with a lump sum of your earnings every year. Therefore, it is only just for the home to look after the residents keenly. Some proprietors neglect their premises in a bid to maximize profits, subjecting the home dwellers to the risk of sustaining nursing home injuries. The nursing home staff must exhibit a reasonable standard of care. However, understaffing in some homes leads to elder abuse as the few employees available are overwhelmed by the work.
