No matter which way you get your news content, this section provides relevant information about current events that are happening relating to accident cases, wrongful death cases and medical malpractice cases in New York and throughout the country.

Many times you will see studies reported here that are currently trending in the news. On occasion I will add commentary to my news report to highlight a particular point and show what happens here in New York.

You will always find a link to the original news story contained within my news report. I find it critically important to allow you, the reader, the ability to determine for yourself the source of the story.
