Police officers, firefighters, EMS workers, and tow truck drivers face significant risks when they stop along the roadway to provide aid. New York, like many states, has a Move Over Law to protect emergency personnel on or near the road.

Parties to lawsuits have some obligation to preserve or to not destroy evidence. If a party improperly destroys evidence, the other party may seek sanctions for “spoliation” of that evidence. The destruction does not have to be intentional. A court may still issue sanctions for spoliation of evidence that was negligently lost or destroyed. If a court determines the evidence was intentionally or willfully destroyed, it presumes the relevance of the evidence. If it was negligently destroyed, the party seeking …

Sometimes a city or another government entity is at fault for a person’s injuries, but suing the government can be complicated. Whether a city can be held liable often depends on the nature of the act or omission that caused the injury.
