Road & Weather Conditions: Today in New York City

Although NYC's weather has been characteristically rainy, it will clear up and be a mostly sunny day, according to The New York Times. During rainy and wet months like January, New York drivers are at an increased risk of getting involved in weather-related car accidents. The roads can become slick, resulting in a high number of hydroplaning accidents. Be sure your tires' tread isn't worn down and ensure that your windshield wipers are in good working order. Yesterday, in Greenwich Village, a water main burst and consequently flooded some tunnels that overflowed into the street. This caused some road closures that have persisted into today because construction workers are still working on fixing the broken pipe. These street closures will likely cause some heavy traffic, particularly in the area of Broadway and Seventh. Experts say that the Greenwich Village traffic will cause a domino effect leading to traffic in Manhattan as well. The city is still unsure of why the pipe failed. They're not even sure if it cracked, leaked or burst completely open. City buses have also been rerouted due to the pipe burst. Today's New York Times update on the goings-on in New York City is extremely typical of the city. Pipe burst, road closures because of construction, traffic jams, rerouted buses and wet roads. All of these are common causes of accidents in the city. If you were involved in one of these types of accidents, contact a New York City personal injury attorney at Jaroslawicz & Jaros, PLLC. We'll fight for maximum financial compensation on your behalf.

David Jaroslawicz Represents Appellant, Executive Plaza, in Fire Insurance Policy Case

Case Executive Plaza, PLLC v Peerless Insurance Company filed in State of New York Court of Appeals. Attorney David Jaroslawicz is representing the appellant in this case, Executive Plaza. This is a federal case concerning two provisions of a $1 million fire insurance policy which was issued by Peerless Insurance Company. The policy was purchased to cover an office building located in Island Park, owned by Executive Plaza. In the first provision of the policy, the owner of the office building is required to repair or replace damaged property prior to bringing suit, and to make those repairs "as soon as reasonably possible." The second provision required the building's owner to bring any such suit against the insurance company within two years of the damage. The major question underlying this case is, what happens when it is not reasonably possible to repair/replace damages to the property within a two-year timeframe?
