Human Negligence Wins Out

We have OSHA and state agencies creating and enforcing regulations to protect the safety of workers in a variety of professions and industries.

We have Vision Zero seeking to eliminate traffic fatalities and make our streets safer for drivers and pedestrians alike.

We have premises liability laws that hold property owners accountable for dangers, providing them an incentive to maintain safe premises.

But we also have something else: Careless and negligent people. Lots of them.

Unfortunately, all the regulations in the world can't stop one negligent person or corporation from causing injuries in New York City. From crane collapses and scaffolding accidents to bus accidents and bicycle accidents, there is no shortage of ways to get hurt through no fault of your own.

Does this mean safety regulations are a bad thing? No. It is good that we continue to strive for a safer city, but we need to be realistic about our ability to completely wipe out the risk of injury.

It is also important to know how to respond in the event you or a loved is hurt. Making sure you have an experienced legal advocate on your side can make all the difference as you seek the financial resources you need.

At Block O'Toole & Murphy, we can take care of your case and take care of you.
