New York drivers who text while driving or speak on a hand held cell phone beware--this week, "Operation Hang Up" starts again, with increased enforcement of the law around the state.

In the wake of a massive recall of 2003-2007 GM vehicles due to ignition switch problems, which led to the disabling of air bags and many preventable deaths, the company is now switching gears and quietly settling many of the cases in a complete reversal of strategy.

Will the band keep playing for Justin?  Possibly not, if he keeps up his wayward ways, and his other problem might be removal from the United States, as an 0-1 Work Visa is not citizenship.

Insurance companies, contractors and property owners have been trying for years to weaken New York’s “Scaffold Law” which protects construction workers by making contractors and property owners absolutely liable for construction worker’s injuries due to a failure to provide proper safety equipment.  Insurance companies use the law as a justification to raise insurance rates, yet they refuse to open their books to prove that excessive injury claims justify the rate hikes.  The law, which has been in existence since 1885, has resulted in New York consistently ranking as one of the safest states for construction workers in the U.S., and should not be diluted to make even more money for companies and corporations who are in the best position to maintain safe working conditions and are not remotely suffering financially.

The Bronx D.A.’s office is considering criminal charges against William Rockefeller, the Metro-North engineer on the December 1, 2013 train which derailed, killing four and injuring more than seventy.  However, I believe that if they do pursue criminal charges against the engineer, they will have little chance of success based on the definition of criminally negligent homicide and other potential charges.  It is more likely that this was simply a very tragic accident and not a crime.

Toyota has agreed to pay 1.2 billion to settle a federal probe into its response to sudden acceleration issues in its vehicles beginning in 2009.  GM's recent change in strategy in responding to a federal investigation and lawsuits arising from defective ignition switches has certainly been influenced by mistakes made by Toyota in its handling of the criminal investigation and more than 300 personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits.

Texting while driving is now a 5 point traffic infraction in New York State, and enforcement efforts have been stepped up tremendously in the last two years.

Arthroscopic surgery on the knee, including meniscectomies, is the most common orthopedic procedure performed in the United States on an annual basis.  But is the torn meniscus the cause of your pain and will the operation cure or alleviate your pain?  That is not so clear, as shown in a Finnish study reported in the New England Journal of Medicine.

It is becoming apparent that many of the safety measures that would have prevented the tragic Metro North derailment of December 1, 2013 could have, and should have, been in place.  Safety devices, such as “alerter systems” that detect inactivity of the engineer, sound an alarm and apply brakes if the engineer doesn’t respond, were supposedly on the Metro-North train that derailed—so why didn’t this system work?

The tragic December 1 Metro North derailment in which 4 passengers were killed and more than seventy injured is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board, the MTA Police, the NYPD and the Bronx District Attorney’s Office.  It appears that the train’s engineer, William Rockefeller, briefly fell asleep and failed to apply the brakes in time to slow the train, traveling at 82 miles per hour, to the 30 m.p.h. speed limit for the turn just north of the Spuyten Duyvil station in the Bronx.  Ironically and tragically, there is technology which will be required in all commuter trains by 2015 called positive train control which could have averted the accident by automatically applying the train’s brakes.

I have known Joseph Villanueva for several years. He is an excellent and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer who is dedicated to obtaining the best results for his clients. I highly recommend him to anyone who has been charged with a crime or traffic infraction.
