Handling Criminal Defense And Personal Injury Cases In The Bronx

December 2013 Archives

New York drug crime charges alleged of 60 individuals

The announcement has been made that 60 persons in the vicinity of Plattsburgh have been arrested on New York drug crime charges. As with all drug crime incidents, the case is a very serious matter. Each person who faces criminal penalties as part of this case could be incarcerated if convicted.

New York man charged in robbery of cancer patients

When an individual is accused of committing acts of robbery, he or she often faces an uphill battle when it comes to the court of public opinion. As an example, a homeless man in New York who has been charged with robbery is being portrayed by the press as "heartless." This moniker only serves to sway people's mindsets, and it's one of the reasons those who have to defend charges like these can feel like they are swimming against the current.

Doctor in New York charged with white collar drug crime

For one doctor in New York, the holidays are going to be much more stressful. He has been charged with a drug crime for allegedly prescribing painkillers to people who did not need the medicines for medical purposes. This type of drug crime is often considered "white collar", but, make no mistake, it is incredibly serious in terms of criminal charges.

35 injured in multiple-car accident

With winter upon us here in the Bronx, it is important that drivers brush up on their cold-weather driving skills. Driving in the winter can be an entirely different ball game than driving in the warmer weather months. Because snow and cold temperatures can wreak havoc on the roads, it is a good idea to slow down and use more caution. It is also advisable to turn on your headlights when it is snowing and allow yourself plenty of time to stop.

Authorities charge New York pharmacist with drug crime

One New York man is not going to be spending his holidays in a relaxed atmosphere thanks to his being charged with a drug crime. The man, a pharmacist who operates in two locations, has been charged with scamming heath programs. The drug crime allegations against him claim that he sold pharmaceuticals that were not from legitimate suppliers, and that he told authorities that the drugs were from firsthand suppliers.

1 dead, 1 injured in New York car accident

In the state of New York, a person can be arrested for what is known as driving while ability impaired or DWAI. This is much like driving while intoxicated (DWI), but is a lesser charge. A DWAI charge is usually levied when a driver’s ability to operate an automobile is affected by alcohol and his or her blood-alcohol content is below the legal limit. A DWI is an unclassified misdemeanor while a DWAI is considered a non-criminal traffic infraction. Even though it is a lesser charge than a DWI, the penalties associated with a DWAI can be severe.

Mental issues may be appropriate New York drug defense for some

On television, a plea for mercy by way of mental deficiencies may be portrayed as an underhanded way to get around the system; this isn't real life, however. For some New York drug defense cases, it may be quite applicable to counter in the courts that an alleged crime has been committed by someone who has a verifiable history of mental disease. This isn't to say that "The devil made me do it" is an acceptable explanation, of course. Yet for some who have been charged and are putting together a drug defense, prior mental problems may need to be considered by the courts.

Reports of meth result in New York man charged with drug crime

In an area of New York not too far from Buffalo, one man has been charged with allegedly possessing and manufacturing meth. The drug crime charges have landed him in prison, and he is being held until he can post a bail of $10,000. His arrest in this drug crime case reportedly started with a tip from a neighbor.

Drug possession charges lead to New York man's arrest

A drug possession charge has landed one New York man in hot water after the car he was driving was found to have "secret compartments." In these hidden compartments, police and their drug-sniffing canines found substances that have been suspected to be cocaine and heroin. However, the drug possession charge is being fought because of the reasons the man's vehicle was searched.

2 dead after SUV slams into cab in the Bronx

No matter how safe of a driver you think you are, as long as you are on the road with other drivers in the Bronx, there is always a chance that you could be involved in a car accident. This is because you obviously have no control over how other people drive and oftentimes, do not have time to react when a car comes hurdling in your direction.

Man imprisoned in New York jail accused of harassment

A man who is already in prison awaiting his day in court in New York has just been charged with harassment of his girlfriend. The girlfriend, an actress in the adult entertainment industry, states that he allegedly called her from prison almost 70 times in roughly a two-week period. Her representatives feel this constitutes harassment, and they have slapped the man with those claims.

New York men get busted for drug possession and sale

Getting arrested on grounds of drug possession and selling is a serious situation, and it has to be treated as thus. That's why it's very critical that all the facts are taken into consideration whenever drug possession and other drug-related charges are being investigated. No doubt this is what will occur when authorities put together the pieces in a recent New York case involving drug charges.

Frequently Asked Questions Personal Injury In New York City

    • Q: I've been injured — now what? A: First, see an experienced doctor. Your injuries should be taken care of before you even consider making a claim against someone for causing them. Make sure you are receiving top-quality health care. Keep all information from medical visits — good records of your injury and your treatments are vital for your case if you decide to pursue legal action. Then, call us to schedule your free consultation.
    • How long can I wait before I file a claim for my personal injury? You should seek help with your claim immediately. Depending on the state you live in, most cases must be filed within four years of the accident, but the sooner you contact us, the sooner we can help you build a strong legal claim. If you've been denied Social Security or disability benefits, your appeal must be filed soon after you receive your denial notification. Call us for assistance and an assessment of your case.
    • I was in an accident without insurance. Can you help me? We would need to assess your case. Our assessment might lead us to conclude that the vehicle you were driving was at fault, or perhaps the road conditions were hazardous. We would also need to assess all of the claims against you as the alleged negligent driver. Call us today for your free assessment.
    • A giant commercial truck/semi hit me, and I was injured/my children were injured/other people in my car were injured. What can I do? Large trucking companies have teams of lawyers at the ready to help them minimize payment or avoid paying you for the damage their driver caused you. You need to call us to help you get what you deserve from the company for your injuries, pain and suffering, damage to your vehicle, and any injuries to people riding in your car. To protect your rights, an independent investigation must be executed as soon as possible.
    • If I get hurt on the job, what should I do? Tell your supervisor or someone in your human resources department immediately, and then get help with your injuries. It's imperative that you file a report about the accident with your employer, or you may be denied any disability or workers' compensation benefits for your injuries. Then, file your workers' compensation documents according to your company's guidelines. If you are turned down, give us a call to get your case assessed. We'll help you get the compensation you deserve for injuries on the job.
    • What should I do if I was injured on a construction site? You should take the same steps as anyone injured at any other job. File an injury report and file for workers' compensation benefits. If you are denied benefits or mistreated by your employer, contact our law firm immediately. Also, contact us immediately if your injury might have been caused by a party other than your employer such as a product manufacturer or another party on a construction site. You might have an underlying personal injury claim.
    • If medical treatment was unsuccessful or caused my condition to worsen, do I have a medical malpractice case? Not all instances of poor medical outcomes are medical malpractice. It is important to speak with an experienced attorney about your specific circumstances.
    • If injured in a police misconduct/brutality incident, what should be done? Get names of witnesses. Take photos of injuries. Get immediate professional medical attention. Contact our Bronx-based police brutality attorney today.
    • What actions should I NOT take when speaking with a police officer? Don't say, "I know my rights," "I'm going to file a complaint/sue" or "I pay your salary." Don't resist or fight if you're going to be arrested even if the cop is wrong, or he or she doesn't tell you why.
    • What should you do in the event of police misconduct/brutality? Note the date, time and location of the incident. Note — but do not ask for — the name, badge or car number of the officers involved. Note the physical description of the officers.
    • What should you do when confronted by a police officer? Stay calm and be courteous. Don't be rude or curse at the officer. Take off your headset or turn down your music. If asked, give your name and address. You don't have to answer any other questions. Tell the officer(s) that you would like to exercise your right to attorney representation.
    • Contact a civil rights attorney or group immediately. If criminally charged, don't speak until you've consulted a defense attorney. What steps should be taken after experiencing police misconduct/brutality?
