Many cities, including New York City, are encouraging residents and visitors to use bikes to get around the city.  There are more bike lanes being put in every day, and you can rent a "Citi-bike" just about anywhere.  It's not surprising that this has resulted in an increasing number of bike accidents citywide.  They only have two wheels, so they are easy to tip over when they are hit by a car.  There is no protection other than a helmet for the bicyclist, so injuries from bike accidents tend to be serious.  If you are injured in a bicycle accident, an experienced bicycle accident attorney in NYC can explain the law as it applies to [...]

Injured Construction Workers Have Rights Under Labor Laws

Labor Laws protect construction workers injured on the job.  New York’s Labor Laws impose a heavy duty on employers to provide a “safe place to work.”  There is special protection for Construction Workers injured while doing work such as renovation, demolition, alteration or repair of buildings and other structures.  The justification for these laws is that construction work is an extremely dangerous profession, and employers should be discouraged from “cutting corners” on safety with these strict laws.  Injured construction workers have protection under these laws that allow them to sue their employers in addition to collecting Workers Compensation benefits. Section 200 This is the “safe place to work” law, and it very broad.  In order to bring [...]

New York’s “Scaffold Law” Protects Injured Construction Workers

New York State Labor Law § 240/241 was one of the first labor laws enacted in the United States.  It predates the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Workers Compensation Programs.  It was enacted in 1885, and despite lobbying to repeal it, has survived to this day. A similar law in Illinois was repealed in 2013.  There is even a website scaffoldlaw.com, dedicated to “Scaffold Law Reform,” with scurrilous claims that the laws actually makes worksites “less safe.”  Why is a law that protects injured construction workers so controversial? So, you must be wondering now, what’s the big deal about this Scaffold Law?  What makes it so terrifying to builders? First off, it operates as [...]

Who’s The Best Accident Attorney in New York City?

Just like you would want to find the best doctor, auto mechanic or interior decorator, you want the best lawyer.  Of course, you do! But how is “best” defined? There’s a little dive in Chinatown that has the “best” dumplings, but I know some of you would say the food is “weird” and “Where’s the chow mein?”  McDonald's has served billions of customers, but are their hamburgers really the best? I prefer mine cooked rare, on a brioche with swiss cheese. Let’s talk about the type of lawyer that’s best for you! You might tend to think [...]

What Happens if the Car Accident is My Fault?

Lawyers are always offering advice on what to do if you are involved in a car accident that’s not your fault.  This is because when somebody else causes the accident, lawyers can represent you in claims for compensation.

You are hurt and so are the people in the other car.  Don’t panic. It’s not the end of the World! Follow the proper procedures and there will [...]

What are My Rights After a Hit and Run Accident?

There are few things more shocking than being seriously injured in an accident, and seeing the other driver take off.  Recently, one of my clients was walking ON THE SIDEWALK when an out of control car went up ONTO THE SIDEWALK and hit him.  His leg was broken in several places and thankfully some people inside adjacent homes heard the noise and called for an ambulance and the police.  He was successfully treated for his injuries and the police caught the driver, who is being charged.  This bring us to the question of legal rights to compensation after a hit and run accident. An experienced Queens Car Accident Attorney knows that there is always somewhere to [...]
