Personal Injury Attorney New York City Discuss Bronx River Parkway Tragedy

Personal Injury AttorneyAs a personal injury attorney in New York City, it is often my job to find out if someone’s injury or death is due to the neglect of another person. One topic of discussion recently is about the Bronx River Parkway tragedy that occurred in April of this year. A family of seven perished after their van hit a curb and was launched over the guardrail. Could this have been avoided?

The Bronx River Parkway is not new to accidents. In this instance, the van hit the guardrail and then fell about 60 feet below into a wooded area of the Bronx Zoo below. In another case from 2006, another family’s vehicle smashed into the median barrier the same area and killed six passengers. Yet another crash occurred in this area in 1987. In that situation, a car went over the median and into oncoming traffic. Three people died. Many want to know if this area really is safe.

Investigating the Concerns

When it comes to the job of a personal injury attorney, New York City residents can remain confident that we take the time to consider these questions carefully. Is this area safe? After the accident in 2006, the city replaced the medians with a new material meant to prevent vehicles from going over them and into oncoming traffic. Obviously, that may not have been enough. Some indicate that the problem stems from the patchwork fix the city has taken on this roadway leaving it dangerous for those who use it. Some even believe that if the area was properly maintained, these deaths could have been prevented.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
