New Year, New Format for New York Disability Law Blog!

Welcome to the newly designed New York Disability Law Blog!  As you will notice, I changed the official title of the blog from "The Disabled Worker Law Blog" to the  more informational "New York Disability Law Blog".  This is in keeping with the blog’s purpose of providing useful information and insight regarding disability claims to fellow attorneys and the general public.  To this end, I am excited to announce the creation of the blog’s "Disability Law Library" which will be continually added to and updated.  I hope that this will eventually become the first place attorneys and claimant’s turn to when […]

What makes construction accidents in New York different from other types of New York workers' compensation accidents?

Thursday, December 28, 2006

Workers on construction sites in New York are given special legal rights under New York Labor Law Sections 200, 240 and 240(1). These laws are sometimes referred to as the “Safe Place to Work Law” or the “Scaffold Law.” These laws may allow construction workers to sue for pain and suffering in addition to collecting New York State Workers’ Compensation Benefits. Depending upon the workers’ injuries, these construction accident lawsuits could be worth multimillions of dollars for the worker and his family. Only a highly qualified disability trial attorney should handle construction accident lawsuits in New York City or Long […]

Well, my seven year old son didn’t get  "an official Red Ryder carbine-action, 200-shot, range-model air rifle with a compass in the stock" this Christmas, but he now has enough "weapons of mass destruction"  to justify Dick Cheney’s armed search of our property (I better duck!)   My daughter is content with her yo-yo and Rubik’s Cube.  Chock it up to testosterone!

Thursday, October 19, 2006

In a huge victory for Ground Zero workers, federal judge Alvin Hellerstein issued a 99 page ruling yesterday giving these heroes the opportunity to sue the City of New York, private contractors and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for their 9/11 related illnesses.

9/11 New York Workers' Compensation Bill Gaining Traction in Albany

Wednesday, June 14, 2006

It looks like a version of the new 9/11 Workers’ Comp Bill introduced recently by Assemblyman Jonathan L. Bing (D-Manhattan) will soon become law.  Final details of a compromise 9/11 bill are currently being worked out by negotiators from Governor Pataki’s office, the Assembly and the Senate, where a similar bill was introduced by State Senator John Marchi (R-Staten Island).   The New York Workers’ Compensation Alliance has been working closely with all interested parties in Albany to craft a law that will protect all 9/11 heroes. If such a bill is signed by Governor Pataki, Ground Zero rescue, recovery and clean up workers will be […]
