All the local agencies and state agencies knew of impending weather, but there were no salt trucks out. On this one section of highway there 8 vehicles that had slid of or had some kind of accident. How do I put a claim in against NYS for the highway not being properly maintained.
That's a State road, so you would have to file a "notice of intention to file a claim" or else a "claim" against the State of New York within 90 days of the accident. If you are late filing, it is a problem, but the problem can probably be overcome if too much time does not go by. You will need a...Read more »

Not clear what you are asking ---if you mean after the car insurance pays, they will likely also look for coverage from the business insurance. The attorney's main interest is in insurance--for the most part, they aren't interested in someone's business except to the extent that means more...Read more »

Wondering of rights as resident. Called town and being told keep kids out of road. Not addressing the law breaking of residents. Put slow down structure at foot of driveway. What else can I do to stop a child from being killed. What are the children's rights.

There appears to be a lot more to your story than you have been able to post here. It would probably be necessary to sit down with an attorney and take the time to fully explain your situation to receive meaningful advice.
Yes, it can. The facts and circumstances of every case are different and courts are packed with cases just like yours. As long as you and your lawyer are communicating and you are being advised what step your case is in, and your case is progressing, no matter how slowly, it’s pretty normal.
