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
Las empresas y sus grupos de presión pagados, abogados y políticos están librando una guerra contra beneficios de PÉRDIDA de los trabajadores (también conocido como el AJUSTE FINAL). Estos beneficios son para trabajadores que sufren daño permanente.
Businesses and their paid lobbyists, lawyers, and politicians are waging all-out war against workers' compensation SCHEDULE LOSS (also known as FINAL ADJUSTMENT) permanency awards for working men and women.
I am very proud to report that I have recently settled two workers' compensation cases for a total of SEVERAL HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS.
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.
The last weeks have been busier than ever, as Elizabeth Rios (Certificate in Latino Labor Leadership from Cornell University) and I have given numerous workshops in Workers' Compensation and Personal Injury laws, and in workers's legal rights to overtime wages, to no less than minimum wage, and to be protected from wage theft and wage bullying. Working people injured in construction, on scaffolds, doing demolition or asbestos removal, or working in restaurants or car washes--whether they injure their back, shoulder, or knee, or need surgery, or just medical treatment--they all have rights and need inside information on the tricks that unscrupulous employers and insurance companies play on people who have not been properly educated. Looking forward to giving many more of these free workshops in the months to come!
I am very proud to have been voted a Super Lawyer for 2015--two years in a row! To be voted a Super Lawyer is an honor and a great responsibility. I intend to continue to represent my injured and disabled workers' compensation, personal injury, and social security disability clients with the most zealous advocacy and compasion.
