Medical malpractice – Medical malpractice occurs when a physician or doctor commits an error that results in a patient suffering an injury. Although you may trust your physician and hospital staff, they can make serious mistakes and errors. In some cases, doctors make bad decisions or do not act with the patient's best interest in mind. Medical malpractice is not restricted to what a medical practitioner or response team does. It also applies to situations when they do nothing and/or keep patients waiting.

Manhattan truck accident – a truck accident occurs when a commercial or large truck is involved in an auto accident. Every day, all vehicles share the roads and highways with large trucks. They are an integral part of operations for many industries. They are also the cause of numerous auto accident cases. Truck drivers are often encouraged by their employers to drive quickly and without stopping to ensure delivery deadlines are met. This can significantly raise the risks of a truck accident occurring. In other cases, the driver may have been allowed to drive although they did not display the right qualifications. In each case, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the driver, their employer, the truck owner or others involved.
