LOS ANGELES, March 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Last year, questions were raised about the safety of New York City's Citi Bike program, which some claimed to be a public safety hazard that creates a "trap-like condition". As a top personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles – a similarly expansive and busy city – Cameron Yadidi Brock and his team at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock, Inc. have paid close attention to how the situation has played out. Mr. Brock has garnered a reputation as a skilled slip and fall, product liability and dog bite attorney, among other specialties. However, he is perhaps best known as a vehicle accident and head injury lawyer. That's why Mr. Brock was particularly dismayed to learn that a Connecticut man has filed a $15 million lawsuit against NYC and the Citi Bike operator after having suffered a debilitating head injury.
CBS News reports that on Oct. 25th, Westport, Connecticut man Ronald Corwin flipped over a bike after his front wheel hit a low barrier installed next to the bicycle docking station. Corwin was unable to see the concrete barrier because its coloring allegedly blends in with the road. "This has turned my life inside out," Corwin says. "I do nothing now but go from one (medical) specialist to another trying to find some relief." Corwin's attorney says his 73-year-old client now suffers from traumatic nerve palsy that has left him unable to smell or taste.
The case against Citi Bike and NYC is a reminder of the dangers that exist to one's wellbeing, particularly in urban environments, as well as the importance of a truly top-notch personal injury attorney. For individuals in need of a personal injury attorney in Los Angeles, there is no better option than Cameron Y. Brock. For decades, Mr. Brock has led a first-rate legal team at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock, Inc.
There are plenty of benefits to choosing Cameron Y. Brock to defend your interests and win substantial settlements, but perhaps the most important is the peace-of-mind that comes from the attorney's sterling record of success. Since the founding of the firm, the team at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock has garnered a 98% success rate, all while winning more than $100 million in awards and settlements for their clients. The monetary rewards reaped by clients of the firm go a long way towards making their lives whole again.
While the Citi Bike program and its alleged danger to cyclists may be a few thousand miles away, the results of cases like this can have repercussions across the country – which is why the need for top attorneys such as Cameron Y. Brock are utterly invaluable. If you or a loved one has been the victim of the negligence of a company or individual, please call 888-509-2998 or visit them on the web at www.legaldefenders.com.

Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
