Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and Low Impact Collisions

Don’t believe the insurance companies when they say that it’s impossible to sustain serious injuries in a low impact collision. The reality is that traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can be sustained any time there is force to the head. Brain trauma occurs in car accidents when the head is either propelled into the steering wheel, windshield or other hard objects in the vehicle. When a car is struck, sometimes the brain itself continues to move, causing it to collide with the hard bones of the skull. That’s whyan experienced Queens Brain Injuries Attorney will always recommend a trip to the emergency room after any head injury. A Slight Headache Can Be a Symptom of TBI If [...]

Martin Luther King and The Montgomery Bus Boycott

Martin Luther King Day was signed into law as a federal holiday in 1983, but was not established in all 50 states until 2000. The holiday celebrates the contributions of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., known for his contribution to ending segregation in the United States, and the tactics of civil disobedience that were used to achieve this goal. The Montgomery Bus Boycott was one of his first successes. On the evening of December 1, 1955, 42 year old Rosa Parks boarded the Cleveland Avenue bus in Montgomery, Alabama after a long day at work. She took a seat in the “colored” section of the bus, as was required under Montgomery’s segregation [...]

What Are High Crimes and Misdemeanors

High crimes and misdemeanors is the Constitutional standard the Congress must use to decide whether or not to impeach and remove a sitting President. It’s always been difficult to understand Constitutional law because it’s written in old-fashioned language and is often intentionally vague. That’s why my teaching assistant review sessions, for the late great civil rights lawyer Haywood Burns, attracted hundreds of students and packed the auditorium at CUNY Law School. It was hard enough to understand these concepts back in the 1990’s, but now we live in the age of “fake news” and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to know who to believe. The discussions we see on TV and read in the paper are usually [...]

What’s Your Personal Injury Claim IQ?

Everybody’s a “know-it-all” when it comes to personal injury claims. Even people that are lucky enough to never have an accident claim to know everything. Everybody has a friend that slipped on a banana peel and collected a million dollars or an uncle that drove his car into a tree and retired on the proceeds on his personal injury settlement. The reality is that nobody collects anything unless they can prove that they were badly hurt as a result of somebody else’s carelessness or recklessness. Let’s see if you know as much as you think. It’s a “No-Fault” Claim No. “No-fault” refers to the “Personal Injury Protection” that’s required in New York, and many other states, [...]

How To Spot The Red Flags When Seeking A High Quality Personal Injury Attorney

There’s no place to hide from attorney advertising.  You can’t miss them when you’re driving down a billboard lined highway, and again when you get home on your computer. You might even see attorney representatives at the scene of your accident or at the hospital, encouraging you to go to their “therapy place.” Queens, Bronx, Staten Island, Manhattan and Brooklyn car accident attorneys make all kinds of promises, but how do you know which claims to believe? This article will show you how to spot “the red flags” that can reveal that your attorney is not being honest and transparent. The “Therapy Place” Guy Some unscrupulous lawyers collude with unethical medical practitioners to hawk services at [...]

Religious Freedom

The founders of the United States and the drafters of our Constitutional considered freedom of religion to be of great importance.  That’s why the First Amendment to the Constitution prohibits infringement on the right to worship as you choose. We’re all aware that freedom of speech does not include the right to panic people by falsely screaming “Fire” in a crowded theater, and similar limits apply to all rights.  We should be grateful to live in a country that allows us the freedom to practice the religion of our choice. Regarding religion, the First Amendment states: “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”   The first half of [...]

Four New Laws in New York

Here are four new laws that were passed in New York that will be taking effect next year. Some of them are the result of years of effort to reform the draconian laws that preceded them, and some of them are just baby steps towards a larger goal.  You can judge for yourself. DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT: The New York State legislature has made it simpler and easier for employees to sue their employers. The Human Rights Law will no longer require workers to show that discrimination or harassment was “severe and pervasive.” The new law will only require employees to prove they were treated worse than others. Employers will no longer be able to defend themselves by [...]
