The owner of a small import-export company contacted me because the Worker's Compensation Board was penalizing him nearly $500,000.00, because the state claimed that the employer did not have workers' compensation insurance, even though he ran a safe workplace that had never had an accident. I appealed that penalty, and after several conversations with the uninsured employers unit, I am very gratified to say that the penalty was entirely rescinded.

Pedestrians vulnerable in spite of hit-and-run penalties

Compared to many cities, New York is relatively pedestrian friendly, so for thousands of residents, walking is the preferred mode of travel. Following traffic laws such as crossing streets only at crosswalks should be enough to keep people on foot safe. However, distracted, drunk, negligent or reckless drivers pose serious hazards to pedestrians, and being hit by a vehicle, even at low speeds, causes significant potential for injury or death.
