DOT's New Marketing Campaign Designed to Prevent Crosswalk Accidents in New York City

Crosswalk accidents in New York City are one of the most common types of pedestrian accident anywhere in The Big Apple. In fact, they make up the majority of pedestrian involved collisions here and are responsible for the vast majority of serious injuries and fatalities that people on foot suffer. As New York City traffic laws are now written, every crosswalk accident could be considered a crime. Motorists have the responsibility to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks every time-whether the crosswalk is marked or not.

School Bus Accident in Brooklyn Leaves Children Scared but Uninjured

A frightening school bus accident in Brooklyn late last month left a group of school children shaken but thankfully uninjured. The bus was loaded with young children traveling down New Utrecht Avenue near the intersection of 53rd Street when a black sedan turned into the side of the bus, striking the door of the vehicle. Both vehicles came to a stop but the children were forced to stay put as the car was physically blocking their exit.

Sidewalk Accidents in New York City Spike During Winter Months

It should come as no surprise that the number of sidewalk accidents in New York City soars during the winter months but it's not always the snow and ice that are responsible for these slip and fall accidents. As the ground and water underneath sidewalks and paving stones freezes, it expands. This can lift these sidewalk flagstones, cause them to mislevel, crack or shift them out of place. This can leave dangerous holes or cracks and raised/uneven sidewalk flagstones that can trip up unsuspecting pedestrians.

Pedestrian Accident in Chelsea Sends One Man to Hospital

Police Facing Allegations of Excessive Force in New York City

Another victim has come forth claiming to be the victim of excessive force at the hands of NYPD officers. Rudy Collins, a youth basketball coach, was stopped while driving his car through Queens.

Premises Liability Accident in New York May Have Been Caused by Construction

Pedestrians narrowly avoided tragedy earlier this month when a heavy glass window fell from the fifth floor of a building in Manhattan on September 13th. The glass and a portion of the window frame came crashing down, just missing pedestrians on the sidewalk below by mere inches. But this isn't a typical premises liability accident. This premises liability accident in New York could have been caused in part by a construction crew.

New Protected Lanes Designed to Prevent Bicycle Accidents in New York

A new set of protected lanes opened earlier this month aimed at reducing the number of bicycle accidents in Brooklyn. The stretch of revamped roadway in Riverdale is part of NYC's overall plan to reduce traffic injuries and deaths through smart engineering, social engagement, and enforcement. This particular section of bicycle-only road runs from the Courtland House to Yonkers and was designed with safety buffers in order to physically separate bike riders and motorists.
