NY Personal Injury

New York seems to flourish in the summer and fall months between wedding season, tourism, and locals taking advantage of the many sites worth seeing through the state. Due to tragic events that occurred in 2018, officials and safety advocates are urging lawmakers to take crucial steps to prevent catastrophic injuries.

Parents depend on school bus drivers, and the companies that manage school bus drivers, to get their children to and from school safely.
