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.

Birth injuries and death

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.

Speed kills

The need for speed can be compelling and addictive. Unfortunately, it can also be deadly. Investigators suspect speeds upward of 100 miles per hour resulted in a loss of control for a vehicle that inevitably went airborne and struck two other cars, injuring and killing those within it as well as the unsuspecting occupants of the other vehicles.

Alcohol plays a major part in fatal boating accidents

There are few things more inspiring and fun than a summer firework show. And for boaters taking to the Hudson for the holiday weekend, the feeling is likely to be no different. However, firework displays are at the top of the list of concerns for local law enforcement officials as well as the U.S. Coastguard. Of particular concern is the conclusion of the show, when boaters all attempt to leave at once.

Congress may block measures to fight truck driver fatigue

Even though public awareness of the hazards of truck driver fatigue is at an all-time high, there is a good chance that Congress will end up again delaying measures designed to help fight the dangerous practice. This is because measures calling for an end to limits on the number of mandatory rest periods truck drivers can use to "restart" their hours of service each week have been tacked on to transportation spending bills currently up for debate. Both the House and Senate bills would indefinitely stay additional legislation regulating trucker rest periods. The House bill would also, if passed, weaken state-level restrictions on truck driver work hours in 20 states (including New York).

Police investigate the claims of a hate crime

On May 27, a teenage boy ran for his life. He ran and he ran until his lungs, plagued by asthma, finally gave up on their demand for oxygen. Racial slurs reportedly hurled still hung in the air from his pursuers, a mob of angry men. He would die in the hospital before the sun would set that day.

Getting the support you need when you've lost a loved one

We've all experienced the death of a loved one and know that it is the most stressful situation a person can go through. When that death is unexpected, it can be even more devastating as there was no time to plan for life in the absence of our loved one. Possibly the most overwhelming of these already challenging situations is when the death of our loved one results from another party's negligence. Questions, frustration and anger pile on top of the already crushing sadness when you think about how the death could have been avoided.
