TEACHING AT LINCOLN HOSPITAL

IMG_0191.JPG El martes, día 2 de febrero me invitaron de nuevo para enseñar una clase en a Compensación de Trabajadores, Demandas de Lesiones Personales, y las leyes de Discapacidad del Seguro Social en el auditorio principal del Hospital Lincoln. Es un privilegio apoderar a los hombres y mujeres que trabajan con el conocimiento de cómo proteger sus beneficios si se lesionan la espalda, el cuello, los hombros, las rodillas, o si se desarrolla el síndrome del túnel carpiano mientras se trabaja en la construcción, o en un andamio o escalera, o en un ascensor accidente, o cuando el techo se derrumba, o en un accidente de ascensor, o en cuidando los ancianos y discapacitados. Con Elizabeth Ríos, mi Asistente Legal Principal, y el recipiente de un Certificado en Liderazgo Latino de Trabajo de la Universidad de Cornell, yo era capaz de enseñar a los trabajadores hispanohablantes que estaban presiente. A finales de este mes estaré enseñando en el Hospital Presbiteriano de Alto Manhattan, y por un grupo de trabajadores de la construcción en Queens: no puedo estar más emocionado y agradecido de poder compartir mis conocimientos con los hombres y mujeres trabajadores de la ciudad de Nueva York.

TEACHING AT LINCOLN HOSPITAL

IMG_0191.JPG  On Tuesday, February 2nd, I was again invited to teach Workers' Compensation, Personal Injury, and Social Security Disability laws in the main auditorium at Lincoln Hospital. It's a privilege to empower working men and women with knowledge how to protect their benefits if they injure their back or neck, or shoulders or knees, or develop carpal tunnel syndrome, while working in construction or on a scaffold or ladder, or in an elevator accident, or when a roof collapses, or in a construction hole, or in caring for the elderly and disabled. With Elizabeth Rios, my Chief Paralegal and recipient of a Certificate in Latino Labor Leadership from Cornell University, I was able to teach the Spanish-speaking workers in attendance. Later this month I will be teaching at Presbyterian Hospital in upper Manhattan, and for a group of construction workers in Queens: I cannot be more excited and gratified to be sharing my knowledge with the working men and women of New York City.  

THREE MILLION DOLLARS FOR TRUCK DRIVER HIT BY FORKLIFT

I'm very proud to report that we have won more than THREE MILLION DOLLARS in personal injury/negligence and workers' compensation benefits for our client who was injured in an accident involving a truck and a forklift. We also won him Social Security Disability benefits to compensate him for his total disability.

TOO MANY CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS, TOO MANY CONSTRUCTION DEATHS!

I read this article in the Daily News with a sense of terrible grief and outrage. New York is one of the great cities of the world, and construction is booming, yet we still cannot provide a safe workplace to the men and women who helping to move our city into the future. This is a disgrace.

NYC LATINO CIVIC ENGAGEMENT FORUM

Mi Paralegal principal, Elizabeth Ríos, asistido a la reciente Foro Cívico de Latinos de la Ciudad de Nueva York en nombre de nuestra oficina, The Klein Law Group. Liz informa que conoció a algunos viejos amigos, e hizo algunos nuevos. Fue un honor para nosotros ser parte de este gran programa, apadrinado por el Instituto de Murphy de la Universidad de la Ciudad de Nueva York.

JUSTICIA PARA UN TRABAJADOR DESHABILITADO

Arturo González (nombre alterado por la privacidad) recibirá más de $ 3,500,000.00 en beneficios de compensación de trabajadores y beneficios por lesiones personales. Deseo que Arturo nunca había sido herido, y que todos los empleadores de Nueva York hagan todo lo posible para mantener a sus lugares de trabajo seguros, pero al menos Arturo será compensado por sus lesiones y su sufrimiento, y puede comenzar una nueva vida.

JUSTICE FOR DISABLED CONSTRUCTION WORKER

Arturo Gonzalez (for the sake of privacy, not his real name) will receive more than $3,500,000.00 in workers' compensation and personal injury benefits.  I wish that Arturo had never been injured, and that employers throughout New York made every effort to keep their workplaces safe, but at least Arturo will be compensated for his injuries and his suffering, as he learns to make a new life.

VIGIL FOR WORKER KILLED AT CONSTRUCTION SITE

El Centro Del Inmigrante reports that a vigil will be held on Saturday December 6 to honor the life of Delfino Velazquez Mendizabal, a man of family and God, who was killed in a Staten Island construction accident when he was doing demolition and a building roof collapsed, and he was buried under the construction rubble. This noble gentleman leaves behind a wife, three children, and three grandchildren.

Work-related fatality numbers dropped in 2011

We frequently write about the working conditions that contribute to preventable employee fatalities. Thankfully, there is some optimistic news to report. In 2011, fewer employees experienced the kinds of catastrophic workplace injuries that ultimately lead to death than were suffered in the previous year. Though this may seem like a small victory, the statistic is hopefully the start of a positive trend toward greater safety in the workplace.

Falling steel beam injures two in Lackawana

It is no secret that some industries are inherently more dangerous than others. The construction industry for example, can be a dangerous business. Our New York readers learned recently about a construction accident involving a crane, in which a construction worker was killed.
