How To Calculate Personal Injury Compensation

14 Apr

Personal Injury

I thought I would take a moment in helping people understand how personal injury compensation is determined in an accident/injury claim. Each day we wake up and go about our routines.

We go to school or work with no huge expectations.  Never once do we consider we may be injured due to a car accident, slip and fall, explosion dog bite, or any other type of personal injury.

However accident do happen unexpectedly.

Those that have suffered a personal injury, that was NOT their fault, are about to face some troublesome times. Recovery from pain and injury is just the beginning of the woes and worries of an accident victim. Trying to figure out how to pay medical expenses while injured is a huge concern for accident victims.

Seriously injured accident victims require time away from work for recovery. If a victims is not working, a few question start to nag and worry the injured victim .. How will I pay my medical bills?  How will I support my family …

That is where a personal attorney comes into play. slips, trips and falls, car crashes, and even dig bites, all fall under “personal injury”.  All in all any type of injury that was caused due to the negligence, carelessness or wrongdoing of an another person or enbtity could be considered a personal injury and the victimiz may qualify for compensation.

Fourth Ave in Brooklyn Dangerous

12 Aug

personal Injury

The Tri-State Transportation Campaign rated the notorious speedway the third most dangerous road in the borough with four fatalities since 2008.

We all know Fourth Avenue is hard to cross safely, but thanks to a transportation organization, now we know it can be fatal.

The Tri-State Transportation Campaign released its analysis of federal traffic fatality data with a fact sheet and a map that outline when and where pedestrian were killed in Brooklyn. In total, 139 pedestrians died in the borough from 2008 to 2010.

The non-profit organization found that Fourth Avenue is tied for third place (with Eastern Parkway and Avenue U) as the most dangerous road for pedestrians with four fatalities from 2008 to 2010.

The data shows that the first pedestrian killed on Fourth Avenue was an 86-year-old man on August 25, 2008 when he tried to cross the avenue at 15th Street.

The second death on the same avenue occurred on July 22, 2009 when a 28-year-old man was killed near the intersection of 39th Street.

The third accident where a pedestrian was hit by a car and died was on Jan. 13, 2009 when a 75-year-old man lost his life on Fourth Avenue between 44th and 45th streets.

The last death recorded by Tri-State Transportation Campaign was on Jan. 17, 2009 when a 58-year-old man was killed while crossing the avenue at 79th Street.

The data also revealed three deaths in Park Slope:

  • A 27-year-old man was killed on Third Avenue and Degraw Street on Jan. 29, 2008.
  • A 38-year-old woman was killed on Flatbush and St. Marks Avenue on March 11, 2009.
  • A 78-year-old man died while crossing Third Avenue and Union Street on Oct. 16, 2010.

The Tri-State Transportation Campaign’s analysis shows that Kings Highway and Atlantic Avenue, both with seven pedestrian fatalities, are tied for the most dangerous road in Brooklyn. Brighton Beach Avenue and Ocean Parkway, both with six deaths, are the second most dangerous roads.

, the Senior Advisor to the Borough President and , said that the rating is obvious.

“You don’t need a rating system to know that Fourth Avenue can be a treacherous place for pedestrians, especially kids who attend one of the many schools along the avenue,” Scissura wrote in a statement to Patch. “Statistics like these are a sobering reminder of why we need a comprehensive plan to improve Fourth Avenue from Atlantic Avenue to the Atlantic Ocean. As the Chair of Borough President Markowitz’s Task Force on Fourth Avenue I look forward to working with elected officials, community groups and community boards to address these safety concerns as soon as possible.”

Do you feel save crossing Fourth Avenue? What other streets do you think are dangerous for pedestrians?

Fatal Tweets

31 Jul

How many news articles do we have to read, where someone was sending their final text or tweet while driving?  Texting while driving is a distraction that can within seconds lead to death or give reason to why an accident happened.

As drivers we need all the brain power we can get when on the road.  We need to be alert and focused.  It takes a split second, before in the wink of an eye a catastrophic accident occurs.

Just in case anybody out there with a driving privilege, and I emphasis the word PRIVILEGE, didn’t know, texting and driving is illegal in 37 U.S. States.  So if your driving through Arizona, Montana or South Carolina your safe — text at your own risk — not ours!

  • In his last post on Twitter, Polo Manukainiu posted, “22 hour drive back to Texas on no sleep. Oh my.”
  • Rapper tweets ‘YOLO’ just before dying in car accident: Drunk af going 120 drifting corners – I tell you saying YOLO seriously is deadly. – so is tweeting!
  • A Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who died when his Jeep Wrangler veered off Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu appears to have posted Twitter updates about his dog minutes before the crash.
  • 22-year-old Alexander Heit, was killed while texting – “Sounds good my man, seeya soon, ill tw” before he crashed.

Just remember — Is it worth it?  That last tweet?

texting while driving can be fatal!
