Big Day in New York Workers' Compensation Law! Court of Appeals Decides Aggregate Trust Fund Deposit Case of Raynor v. Landmark Chrysler in Ruling Against Insurance Carriers

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Raynor v. Landmark Chrysler, the New York State Court of Appeals affirmed a lower appellate court ruling upholding provisions requiring private workers’ compensation insurance carriers to make mandatory Aggregate Trust Fund (ATF) deposits for claimants classified as permanently partially disabled (PPD) and injured both before and after March 13, 2007. Upon the worker being classified PPD, the private insurance carrier is obligated to deposit the present value sum of future indemnity payments into the Aggregate Trust Fund (ATF). In many cases, such deposits will be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. This is a private workers’ compensation insurance company’s worst nightmare. Practically, just the threat of a potential PPD classification should cause insurance companies to pull out their settlement checkbooks and pens. And this was the intention of the 2007 New York Workers’ Compensation Reform legislation The fairness of settlement offers will be based upon the ATF’s present value discount tables and Board Bulletin 222-B. if you have questions about the fairness of your Section 32 workers compensation settlement offer, please contact Troy Rosasco at x123 for a Free Evaluation of your claim

NY Post on Zadroga Lawyers Worby Napoli "Ad Trick Insult"

Monday, March 28, 2011

In my opinion, Worby Napoli’s pattern of conduct over the last few month’s is nothing short of disgraceful. How can any future Zadroga 9/11 claimant trust this law firm? There are many honorable Zadroga 9/11 lawyers representing 9/11 victims and first responders. Unfortunately, the honorable attorneys are inevitably tarnished by the “900 pound gorilla in the room”.

Zadroga 9/11 Lawyer to Lecture at St. John's Law School on Eve of Triangle Fire 100th Anniversary

Monday, March 21, 2011

I will be giving my annual New York Workers’ Compensation Law lecture tomorrow night at St. John’s Law School at the invitation of Prof. David Gregory, one of the country’s preeminent labor law experts. This year my Workers’ Compensation Law lecture takes on particular significance as the this week marks the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire tragedy in lower Manhattan, which was the seminal event leading to the establishment of workers’ compensation laws throughout the country. 146 workers lost their lives either in the fire or jumping from the building. In a eeirly sad coincidence, it just so happens that this year is also the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center Disaster. It took 90 years for the WTC disaster to eclipse the Triangle Factory Fire as New York’s most deadly workplace accident.
We are still filing ongoing workers’ compensation claims for 9/11 victims, survivors and first responders. In addition, this year has brought the passage of the new James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010. I will be sharing with the students facts about the new Zadroga 9/11 Act, how to file a Zadroga Act claim, and what medical conditions are covered under the Zadroga Act.
