A tour bus with 44 passengers inside went off the road after running over a pothole and smashed into scaffolding on West 41st Street.

Knee Surgery - Common Injury After an Accident

Knee surgery in New York is a common medical procedure performed for a variety of different reasons but one of the most common is to repair damaged caused in an auto or slip and fall accident. Car accidents are notoriously disastrous for people's knees as most vehicles are designed to place the lower portion of your legs under the dashboard and steering wheel. When the front crumple zones of vehicles work as they should, the front section of the car folds in, often causing the dash to collapse and impact or even trap the legs of passengers within.
