    Motor vehicle accidents often result in the untimely deaths of victims. Tuesday morning brought the curtain down on another life in one such horrible tragedy.

    Details of the accident:

    The deceased, a 52-year-old man, appeared to be fleeing a hit and run. He was fatally struck by a dump truck. The dump truck did not stop after hitting the victim in the Bronx on Tuesday.

    The deceased was discovered at Country Club Road and MacDonough Place in Pelham Bay near 5 a.m. in the morning.

    Prior to this, the deceased had sideswiped another vehicle in a minor crash. This crash happened on McLean Avenue. He did not stop, instead fleeing the scene, prompting the other driver involved in the crash to chase him.

    How did it happen?

    According to police, the victim was heading south on the Bronx River Parkway. This is when it is believed he realized three tires of his car were damaged because of the crash.

    Therefore, he saw no choice but to pull over on interstate 95 using the Bruckner Boulevard Service Road. He exited his vehicle and tried to flee on foot. This is when a dump truck struck him. He simply ran in front of the truck, got hit and died instantly.

    The police are now hunting for the dump truck involved in this accident, which, ironically, did not stop. The Bruckner Road exit ramp from Interstate 95 has been closed by police to investigate this accident.

        A commercial litigation lawyer loaded with a wealth of experience can be a solid pillar your business can rely on for growth. It is because their valuable legal advice is an essential tool your business needs, to grow safely in the right direction.

        Word-of-mouth, online research, the local chamber of commerce or a visit to local bar associations can be useful ways of finding a competent commercial litigation lawyer for your business. Is that enough? What do you think?

        In simple words, there is a difference between finding and determining the right person you are looking for. You need to understand this fine-line difference to find a reliable commercial litigation attorney in NYC, if you want to grow your business and safeguard relevant interests.

        The steps you should take:

        The process of hiring someone who can take care of your business on the legal front requires effort. Your list of efforts should include, but not limited to, the following:

        Establish Communication

        Look for a concern for your interests:

        Communication with your potential business litigation attorney in NYC is key. This communication is possible through a couple of meetings with them, as both of you get to know about each other. You should ask a couple of questions during these meetings. These questions must be related to experience about handling cases, the possibility of decisions in your favour and your responsibility as a client, plaintiff or defendant, etc. 

        This is one of the key things you should look for in your potential business litigation attorney in NYC. Your business needs legal protection against many issues. Examples of possible situations you can experience:

        • Trademark/copyright infringement
        • Unfair means of competition from competitors
        • Litigation to internet disputes, etc. 

        Therefore, it is important you look for someone who has the experience needed to take a practical, aggressive and measured approach. Someone who can devise a legal strategy accordingly to safeguard your business. The frequency of communication should also factor into this process.

        Ask for fee structure:

        Most of the time, business litigation lawyers charge clients on an hourly basis. For certain cases though, the following fee structure could suit you and your legal representative:

        • Contingency fee
        • Hybrid fee structure

        The amount of the fee should be reasonable under all circumstances.
