New York Social Security Disability Lawyer Client Profiled in Daily News

Friday, May 18, 2007

Last week, the New York Daily News published a sad article about disability benefits and our client’s 3 1/2 year struggle to obtain the Social Security Disability benefits she deserved entitled "Filing for Disability, but Finding Discouragement".   As detailed in the article, our client was mentally retarded and could not read or write.  In mid-2003, she applied for Social Security Disability benefits.  Unbelievably, her claim was denied about 6 months later.  Our office filed an appeal called a "Request for a Hearing before an Administrative Law Judge" in the Queens Office of Disability Adjudication and Review.  Our client eventually appeared for a hearing before […]

Disability Lawyer Rosasco Says Verizon Toxic Waste Site Unsafe

Tuesday, May 8, 2007

Once again, Mark Harrington of Newsday continues to do a superb job of  uncovering previously unreleased documents about the dangers still lurking in the soil and air surrounding the former Hicksville Sylvania nuclear fuel rod fabricating plant, now owned by Verizon.  Yesterday, he published the fourth article in an ongoing series about the Hicksville nuclear site and its impact on thousands of workers. Harrington details the most recent March 2007 Army Corps of Engineers report about the proposed future cleanup of this "dirty" site contaminated with both radiological waste and chemicals such as TCE and PCE. Updating the health of my client, the article goes on: Troy […]

Big Victory for Workers Contaminated by Radiation at NY Verizon Nuclear Waste Site

Monday, April 23, 2007

US Senator Charles Schumer announced in a Newsday article yesterday that treatment, medical monitoring and potential compensation are on the way for potentially thousands of workers who formerly worked atop the nuclear waste site owned by Verizon in Hicksville, New York.  In addition to announcing the new benefits for workers, a frustrated but determined Senator Charles Schumer stated that "I will hold the Army Corps’ of Engineers feet to the fire" and "the site should have been cleaned up yesterday", referring to his previous efforts in 2004 to achieve a full cleanup.    Shocked that their efforts in 2004 to secure a federal cleanup of the Hicksville, Long […]

Prayers for Virginia Tech Victims and Families

Monday, April 16, 2007

Shocking.  Revolting.  Sad.  Tragedy.  Anger.  Way off the seemingly inconsequential topic of long term disability and social security disability claims today, but we feel compelled to offer our sympathies and prayers to all those impacted by the horrific shootings at Virginia Tech today.  May God be with you all.

Long Island Verizon Sylvania Nuclear Waste Site Conspiracy?

Thursday, April 5, 2007

That’s what Adreinne Esposito, Executive Director of the Citizens’ Campaign for the Environment, called the growing controversy regarding Verizon’s radiation contaminated property located in Hicksville, New York  in a recent News 12 Long Island television report on the former Sylvania Nuclear Products facility.  See the full video here. After Newsday’s first story broke about our client’s cancer related to his work at this site for Magazine Distributors, Inc.,  a division of Hudson News, in an article few weeks weeks ago, the unanswered questions regarding the dangers at this toxic site are rapidly expanding.  Newsday later followed up a week later with another story unearthing a previously unreleased Army […]

Thursday, March 22, 2007

Yesterday’s Newsday had a disturbing article regarding the radiation related health risks to workers who worked on or around the Hicksville, Long Island, Sylvania Nuclear Waste Site ,now owned by Verizon.  Our office recently won a workers’ compensation claim for a worker who contracted a rare cancer, extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma, due to ionizing radiation and other toxins while working on this site for Magazine Distributors, Inc.,  a division of Hudson News.  If I were a worker at this site or knew someone who worked near there, I would read this article carefully. This nuclear waste site, located at 70,100 and 140 Cantiague Rock Road, Hicksville, NY was operated by Sylvania […]

More New York Workers' Compensation Reform On the Way?

Tuesday, March 13, 2007

Read carefully the letter released today simultaneously with Governor Eliot Spitzer’s signing of the new Workers’ Compensation Reform bill into law.  You can also listen to the audio file of his remarks today. The strong and resolute language in this letter portends future administrative changes which could impact the New York Workers’ Compensation Board as much, if not more , than the new statutory changes.  It is clear that much will depend upon the individuals selected to sit on the newly created task forces and the Governor’s choice of a new Workers’ Compensation Board Chairperson.  Both sets of announcements are expected shortly.  Bottom Line – these appointments […]

Nassau Lawyer Speaks on New York Workers' Compensation Reform Bill

Thursday, March 8, 2007

I was interviewed the other day by WorkersComp Central, a national on-line newspaper dedicated to workers’ compensation issues, on the impact of the new Spitzer New York Workers’ Comp Reform Bill.  This bill passed both the Senate and the Assembly unanimously yesterday and is expected to be signed by Governor Spitzer next Tuesday.  The new law takes effect July 1, 2007,  and the changes are transformative – to say the least.  For attorneys who have practiced law in this administrative and technical forum many years, the changes will test our ability to adapt to radically new benefit structure.  It should be interesting!
