Let’s face it, car accidents can be jarring experiences. No one really gets into a taxi or Uber and actually expects to be in an accident. However, there are countless crashes in the tri-state area every day. While a large number may not involve serious injuries, it is not uncommon for tempers to flare after a fender bender.
One of the harder transitions for those recovering from traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) is returning to work. This is especially true when the TBI occurred on the job.
If you ride a bike among the traffic on the streets of Manhattan, you literally can take your life into your hands. Between the trucks, taxis and other vehicles, cycling through New York City's streets is a dangerous form of exercise not intended for the faint of heart.
New York roadways can be extremely crowded and dangerous, particularly considering the number of commercial vehicles on the road. While there are steps you can take to improve your overall level of safety, you never know when another driver will cause an accident. While any driver can make a mistake, drive distracted or fail to obey traffic laws, commercial vehicles require an extra level of care when driving.
