The New York Post reports on a proposal that is one of the lowest, most egregious, and even vile things we've seen in more than thirty years fighting for the rights of working men and women in New York. This is an attempt--that we have to believe must fail--to put a strictly limited money value on the lives of workers injured and killed on construction, asbestos removal, demolition and scaffold work sites. Another way to understand this proposal, is that it would encourage contractors to play fast and loose with safety precautions. Every New Yorker must fight this proposal and the people who so cheaply value the lives of our construction workers.
I am very gratified to announce that I and my firm have been named as a "10 BEST LAW FIRM" by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys for 2017 - 2018. This is quite an honor!
Me complace informar que en los dos últimos meses de 2016 ganamos más de dos millones de dólares para nuestros clientes con casos de lesiones personales. Es un logro notable - y muy gratificante - para luchar por mis clientes y luego ver tan excelentes resultados.
I am very pleased to report that in the last two months of 2016 we won over TWO MILLION DOLLARS for our clients with personal injury cases. It's a remarkable accomplishment - and a very gratifying one - to fight for my clients and then to see such excellent results.
THIS IS A TRAVESTY FOR WORKING MEN AND WOMEN!! We must do better starting right now to ensure that every workplace in New York is safe
Often, when a construction or demolition worker is injured on a faulty scaffold, or when a construction hole caves in, or a roof or ladder collapses, the supervisor on site, or the boss himself, will offer cash to the worker not to file a Workers' Compensation case or a Personal Injury case. The cash will often come with a promise to pay all medical bills and to hold your job open. What the boss never tells you is that your case may be worth many, many times more money than he is offering you. He also isn't going to tell you that he may be conspiring with his insurance company to offer you cash and promises in order to keep you from pursuing your right to the full protection of Workers' Compensation and Personal Injury laws and benefits. You do not have to let them get away with this!
Our hearts go out to Olegario Pabon and his family for the terrible elevator accident that took his life and changed the lives of his family forever. The New York City Housing Authority was warned of a "very dangerous" condition in the faulty elevator-a safety device called a break monitor was turned off, and Olegario and his family paid the price.
New York residents probably remember hearing about the Dec. 14 elevator accident that claimed the life of a 41-year-old advertising executive. She was killed in horrific fashion when the elevator she was trying to board shot up suddenly, ending her life in tragic and dramatic manner.
