Rosasco Attends Veterans Disability Attorney Conference in DC

Wednesday, November 7, 2007

As an Air Force veteran myself, it was reassuring to know that so many talented veteran disability claim lawyers were in attendance at the National Organization of  Veterans’ Attorneys (NOVA) conference last week in Washington, DC.  My partner David Tobias and I attended, and as always, there was much to learn.   If there was one thing that stood out in my mind from this conference, it would be the realization of the staggering numbers of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) service connected disability claims that we will all be seeing come out of the current Iraq war.  Formerly called "Soldiers Heart" and "Shell Shock" in […]

Disability Lawyer Volunteers at Long Island MS Society "Meet the Attorney" Night

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

Thanks to Jane Reilly and all those at the Long Island, New York Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for inviting me to participate at their annual free "Meet the Attorney" night last week at the Melville headquarters.  I had a private meeting with a lovely woman struggling with MS to discuss both her ERISA long term disability claim with Unum, and her pending Social Security Disability claim.   I advised her NOT to use the "free" representation from GENEX Services to assist her with her Social Security Disability claim, as GENEX operates solely for the benefit of Unum, and therefore has a major conflict of interest […]

New Test for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Will Help Long Term Disability Claims

Monday, September 24, 2007

It’s all in your head!  You do not have "objective medical evidence" of a disabling condition!  Your symptoms are "self reported" and not supported by "testing"!  Any chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) sufferer whose disability claim has been denied by either Social Security or an LTD insurance company has seen these infuriating phrases before.  As reported by Dr. Sanjay Gupta of CNN last week, a new study and test for CFS may put an end to this injustice. Despite ample clinical evidence of disability from treating physicians, many ME/CFS and FM patients and couldn’t get past "objective evidence" roadblock put up by ERISA […]

The Forgotten 9/11 Ground Zero Heroes

Tuesday, September 11, 2007

   Marie Cocco of the Washington Post has a great column today profiling one of our clients, Jeanmarie DeBiase, the widow of 9/11 hero Mark DeBiase.  While sick police officers and firefighters have received much deserved attention, workers in a variety of occupations, without whom the Ground Zero clean-up could not have been possible, have not received the same level of press.  Mark was a wireless phone technician who set up emergency communications for other 9/11 rescue and first responders and volunteers.  He died on April 9, 2006 due to interstitial lung disease caused by exposure to dust and toxins at the Fresh Kills landfill, where the World […]

Lawyers Sue Verizon Again Over Contaminated Nuclear Waste Site in New York

Monday, September 10, 2007

A Newsday article today details yet another lawsuit against Verizon for cancers and other life threatening diseases caused by Verizon’s contaminated nuclear waste property in Hicksville, New York.  It was just a few years ago that Verizon paid out a multi-million dollar settlement to residents in the surrounding area over their increased rates of cancer.  Incredibly, despite their previous settlement with surrounding residents, they state in today’s article that the property is not a health hazard!!!  They must be kidding!!!  Thankfully, at least the newest lawsuit is in front of federal District Court Judge Leonard Wexler, a no nonsense jurist who […]
