Most New Yorkers have probably heard of the term "ambulance chaser." But what does it actually mean?
The mother of a man who hanged himself while in solitary confinement in a cell in Rikers Island in 2013 has filed suit against New York City for her son's death. The inmate tied a sheet to an overhead vent after being taunted by a guard and encouraged to kill himself. He died days later.
Manhattan is crammed full of commercial enterprises everywhere you look, and those enterprises need products to stay in business. One of the ways we get products here is via 18-wheeler trucks. As a matter of fact, no matter what part of the country you are in, we all rely on large, heavy tractor-trailers to bring us goods from one place to another. The only unfortunate part of the trucking business is that it takes only one truck accident to cause devastation and catastrophic destruction.
While one thing Manhattan residents don't usually have to worry too much about is pruning trees and landscaping, but for residents who own of property outside of the city, it's an ongoing task.
