Dangerous curves and drunk driving: A perilous combination

Do you drive home from work the same way every evening? Perhaps there's a particularly dangerous curve you have to navigate, and every time, you notice a bouquet of flowers -- or multiple bouquets of flowers -- on the corner in remembrance of the people who died.

This spring, warm up to idea of pedestrian safety

Though some clinging vestiges of winter remain, springtime is officially upon us now. Everywhere you look around Albany, you'll see signs of new life, with birds beginning to nest again, flowers starting to sprout and grass steadfastly starting to get greener. After a brutal winter like those we endure annually, people tend to flock outside once the weather warms.

How do I know if I should accept an insurance settlement?

If you've been injured, whether in a car accident, slip-and-fall, by a defective product, because of negligent maintenance, in an attack by a vicious dog or by some other means, the most important thing is your recovery. You need the right medical treatment, rest, rehabilitation and time in order to get your health back. Unfortunately, your injury could affect more than your physical health; the stress of missing work, piling up medical bills and financing your treatment could actually be setting you behind in your recovery.

How much compensation are you owed after a car accident?

A car crash can change your life in a moment, leaving you saddled with medical bills, vehicle repair costs and other expenses that can quickly drain your savings. If your accident was caused by the reckless or negligent actions of another person, you may be able to recover these losses by filing a civil claim against the liable party.
