Parents of unlicensed driver charged in New York fatal car crash

Getting a driver's license is one of the most exciting and important times in a young teenager's life. With a license comes freedom and responsibility.

Man awarded $5.1 million after construction site accident

One of the biggest risks on a New York construction site is falling, and preventing anything from falling is crucial.
