Workers' Compensation Client Receives Christmas BlessingTuesday, December 27, 2005
One of our workers compensation and Social Security disability clients picked up her $500 check as a result of Turley Redmond & Rosasco’s First Annual Christmas Blessing on December 21, 2005 in our Shirley office. Our staff was overwhelmed by the volume of touching and heartfelt letters we received from many of our disabled clients. Almost every single letter requested help not for themselves, but for their young children on Christmas day. Our staff did their best to select the absolute neediest among our many deserving clients.
Finally, our staff selected a single mom with three children ranging from age 2 to 6. She had a 15 year solid work history as a Nurse’s Aide until she hurt her back lifting a patient at work. She recently underwent back fusion surgery but the result is still in limbo as she continues to have chronic pain. She has no car and uses sporadic bus service on the east end of Long Island to go to doctor appointments and buy groceries. Her Social Security disability claim is still pending, and her only source of income is her paltry workers’ compensation benefit.
When we called her on the phone to inform her of her blessing, she began to scream in joy so loudly that her children could be heard in the background asking what was the matter. We thank all our clients who participated in the Christmas Blessing and look forward to making it an annual tradition at Turley Redmond & Rosasco. We wish you and your families a happy and healthy New Year!
