The Nassau Coliseum is plagued by troubles. In addition to losing their primary hockey franchise to a newer stadium, the long-standing sports venue is now facing premises liability lawsuits from 140 claimants, all former employees of the New York arena. They claim that exposure to asbestos at the Coliseum has lead to a variety of serious health issues.
A home has exploded, resulting in the death of one child and injuring at least 15 people. The explosion occurred in the late morning hours and caused the entire two-story house to collapse.

Premises liability is an important consideration in construction-heavy areas of New York. One case stemming back to a 2008 accident in New York that left seven people dead after a construction collapse is still not over.

Either way, the career of the crane rigger involved in the accident has been halted irrevocably.
The partial collapse of a single-family home in a Brooklyn neighborhood has resulted in the death of one worker, and injuries to three others. New York construction accidents can be devastating when injuries or a death are involved, which is why there are significant safety regulations and precautions surrounding a construction site. These regulations and precautions become even more important when construction sites are in city neighborhoods where close proximity to other homes and people could create dangerous premises that could lead to serious injuries.
The construction of the new Four W.T.C., on the site of the World Trade Center in New York, is at a halt now, due to a crane accident last month. Luckily, the potentially terrifying incident left construction workers and pedestrian passersby out of harm's way. Unfortunately this is not always the case, as negligence concerning safety regulations can sometimes form the basis for a premises liability claim.
Dogs can be very friendly creatures that bring their owner or family plenty of happiness. But, ultimately, they are animals and at any given moment they could bite someone, may it be accidental or not.
