Risks that new drivers may face

Any driver can cause a motor vehicle collision, whether they have decades of safe driving experience or they are getting behind the wheel for the first time. However, those who are new to driving may be especially likely to cause a motor vehicle wreck for various reasons. This post will examine some of the risks and challenges that new drivers often face and draw awareness to safe driving.

What you need to know before you buy a historic home

The Westchester County area is rich with historic homes that showcase the nation's history. The Elijah Miller House, located in North White Plains, was built before the country existed. It served as General George Washington's headquarters during the Battle of White Plains. The home stood vacant for years, but is now being turned into a public museum.

Depression in the wake of a car collision

Motor vehicle crashes can create many challenges in a victim's life, some of which are very obvious, such as physical injuries or financial problems stemming from hospital expenses or missing work. However, there are other consequences associated with motor vehicle collisions that can make it incredibly hard for a car accident victim to make it through each day. For example, some people who have been involved in a crash may struggle with depression and other negative emotions, such as anxiety and anger. It is pivotal for car crash victims in this position to handle their emotions properly and it is certainly understandable to have these difficulties.

Driving drunk while under-aged

There are many different ways in which drivers put the lives of innocent people at risk, whether they ignore traffic signs or drive too fast when road conditions are poor. However, the use of alcohol and illegal substances is especially concerning and some young people choose to get behind the wheel even though they are impaired due to drinking alcohol. If you were hit by a driver who was intoxicated, regardless of their age, you should examine your possible legal options.

New York legislature rejects cuts to spousal refusal

The legislature rejects Governor Cuomo's proposal to cut spousal protections, including spousal refusal, in the 2018-19 state budget. The initial New York state budget suggested the removal of spousal refusal, which allows a spouse to refuse payment for long-term care expenses for another spouse.

Recognizing age discrimination

There are a number of ways in which workers are unlawfully mistreated in the workplace, from wage violations to racial discrimination. However, some people are also subjected to discrimination on the basis of their age. It is important to recognize the different ways that age discrimination manifests in workplaces across the state of New York and you may want to consider taking action if you have been subjected to illegal discrimination. In this blog, we will look into some of the different ways that people are discriminated against due to their age.

Installing a dash cam to protect yourself

When it comes to motor vehicle collisions, there are a number of considerations to bear in mind. Aside from the different risks associated with driving, there are other challenges that some people who are involved in a car crash have to work through. For example, someone may be falsely accused of causing a motor vehicle wreck, in which case having a dash cam that recorded footage of the crash could be very helpful. If you are thinking about installing a dash cam in your vehicle, you should make sure that you properly and carefully set up the camera.

Post-divorce financial concerns

When a couple brings their marriage to an end, they may face a variety of challenges, from a decision regarding the custody of their children to parental relocation and even adjusting to daily life without one's spouse. However, there are many ways in which divorce can affect people from a financial standpoint and some people, such as those who have a high net worth, may be especially impacted by various divorce-related financial matters. If you have not yet split up with your spouse, it is crucial to prepare for your divorce and the possible financial repercussions.
