When word came in over the newswire that a horse-drawn carriage had been struck by a taxi near Central Park in New York, personal injury lawyers, who thought they had seen it all, were reminded they hadn't.

"Every day, this city will invent interesting new ways for residents and visitors to require New York personal injury lawyers and we need to be prepared for them all," said David Perecman, founder of the Perecman Firm, a Manhattan based law office staffed with personal injury lawyers intimately familiar with New York.

According to the New York Post, the cabby allegedly suffered a seizure when he slammed his cab into the empty horse-drawn carriage, smashing it before crashing into a wall.

Both the drivers of the taxi and the carriage were hospitalized for non-life-threatening injuries. The horse was unhurt.

"Our New York personal injury lawyers are ready to work for their clients and get them the maximum compensation they deserve no matter what the situation is," explained Perecman. "To be a successful personal injury lawyer in Manhattan means you have to expect the unexpected. And we do that."
