JERSEY CITY, N.J., Sept. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reports today that in breaking news, the Papal U.S. Visit is one that many Americans are extremely excited about. It is without question that Pope Francis brings to the States a great message of protecting our earth's environment, but also hope to so many worshippers. However, along with the high security for the Pope, comes increased congestion and a slowdown of normal work functions in both Washington, D.C. and NYC.

Pope Francis first met President Obama in Washington D.C., then addressed 11,000 ticketed guests at the welcoming ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House. The six day visit, which highlights time in D.C, N.Y, and Philadelphia, will undoubtedly shut down roadways and drastically alter mass transit routes, causing serious concerns on how to get about the cities. The Pope will arrive in New York late Thursday with an evening mass scheduled at St. Patrick's Cathedral near Central Park. Friday's schedule is much busier for Pope Francis, where he will start his day at the United Nations, with a meeting with the U.N. General Assembly, and then meander through Manhattan, before ending his day at Madison Square Garden (MSG) for a mass for 25,000 people. Additionally, there has been a large mural painted at the corner of 8th Ave. and 34th St. outside of Penn Station and Madison Square Garden, depicting an image of Pope Francis smiling and waving his hand at the crowd. The Big Apple is welcoming the Papal visit by honoring him through art. The Pope will then make his way to Philadelphia later in the week.

The Pope schedule, which has made headlines all over the country, is a time that all New Yorkers should heed caution. When traffic and mass transit routes are altered, there seems to be more confusion and this lends to more accidents and incidents being caused. Legal-Bay, a lawsuit cash advance firm, is dedicated in helping accident victims with getting some cash relief prior to their cases being settled. However, the firm also would like to prevent further accidents by urging citizens to be on caution during this exciting time. 

Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay commented on the Papal visit, "We have seen all too many times that when big events happen, accidents tend to spike. Whenever commuting routes are outside the norm, it leads to distraction and mishaps. We want all New York and New Jersey people to enjoy the Pope's visit and message, but also to be extra careful during this time to avoid serious personal injury."

Legal-Bay is announcing that the following mass transit means will be affected in some way during the Pope's visit: MTA bus and New York City subway lines, Port Authority Path Trains, LIRR trains, Metro-North Trains, NJ Transit Buses, and all bridge and tunnel traffic including the Lincoln Tunnel, Queens Midtown tunnel, and Holland Tunnel.   

Legal-Bay is dedicated to helping victims involved in all types of personal injury accidents and catastrophic incidents, including car and semi truck wrecks, mass transit accidents, bus accidents, train accidents, as well as cases involving wrongful death and police brutality cases with obtaining pre-settlement funding in order to help the individuals get their lives back on track.
