New bill may allow "textalyzer" use among police

Distracted driving resulted in 3,450 deaths in 2016 according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It is a widespread trend as well as an underreported one since drivers involved in a crash do not want to admit distractions to the police. In 2017, the New York legislature proposed a bill allowing for the use of "textalyzers" to find out if drivers were using their phone before a crash. That measure failed, but Nevada is considering one like it.

Car smashes into light in Brooklyn, leaves one dead

A one-car crash in Brooklyn on March 11 left one man dead and another in critical condition. Around 3 a.m., a vehicle was traveling Kings Highway when it collided with a light pole near Tilden Avenue in East Flatbush. Police say that the vehicle was so mangled that it was barely recognizable as one.

Daylight saving time raises risk for car accidents

Drivers in New York should be sleeping the recommended seven hours every night, or else they run the risk of becoming drowsy behind the wheel. This is a particular danger after daylight saving time since drivers lose a crucial hour of sleep. For this reason, the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety recommends that all drivers adjust their sleep schedules beforehand.

Truck driver safety

Tractor-trailers make up a fair amount of traffic in and around Rochester. Their larger size, especially at highways speeds, is intimidating to people in smaller vehicles.

Many malpractice errors are avoidable

Doctors are sometimes thought of as miracle workers when treatment goes well, and the patient responds as hoped for and proceeds to a speedy and complete recovery. In other instances, a doctor may make heroic efforts, but the situation is clearly beyond hope, and nothing can be done. However, when a New York doctor makes a mistake that, perhaps, didn't have to happen, questions naturally follow. Surprisingly, errors are often made on routine matters rather than in performing procedures that require great skill and extensive training.

  3. I cannot thank Brad and the entire Kammholz Rossi team enough. I am so glad that I made the decision to have Brad represent me. I received an injury at work that would be a life changing event for me and my family. I needed to find an attorney that would look out for me and my family. After meeting with a few law firms I chose Brad and his firm. Brad was truly concerned with my injury and what was best for me and my family. Too many of the law firms I met with were only concerned with what they could get from a settlement. Brad is truly concerned with what is best for you. He will listen to all of your thoughts and concerns, and advise you on what actions would be best. Trust is a very important part of a relationship in a legal action. I trusted Brad and his firm. I always knew that Brad truly was looking out for what was best for me and my family. You will not regret having Brad and his entire firm represent you. Everyone there is very pleasant, friendly, casual and yet professional. Their approach helps reduce the stress and tension that comes with a bad situation. Over the twenty two months that Brad represented me, we developed a friendship. I consider Brad a friend and look forward to continuing that friendship for a long time. On behalf of me and my family we cannot thank-you enough for everything that you and your firm have done for us. Truly the best decision made in a bad situation.

  4. There is not enough thanks and praise that I can give to Kammholz Rossi, for helping me through a very difficult time. I truly believe that if it were not for Kammholz Rossi I would not have received the procedures necessary to make me whole again; I would highly recommend anyone who has had the misfortune of an accident to simply speak with the agency, you will not be disappointed.
