Workers Compensation Lawyer Christopher Redmond Opens New Hamptons OfficeMonday, April 11, 2011
Christopher M. Redmond, a Senior Partner at the New York Workers’ Compensation Law Firm of Turley Redmond & Rosasco, L.L.P., has opened a new office on Main Street in Sag Harbor, NY to serve injured workers from Montauk, East Hampton, Bridgehampton, Southampton, Sag Harbor and Hampton Bays. He will continue to see clients from Westhampton and East Moriches in our existing Riverhead office.
While other places of the country continue to see an overall housing slump, Long Island South Fork ( from the Hampton’s to Montauk) housing continues to thrive, providing construction and landscaping jobs throughout the region. Unfortunately, as a result, this also leads to an increase in construction accidents, including falls off ladders, scaffolds and roofs, and into holes and ditches.
Often times general contractors use off-the-books immigrant workers on both construction sites and on landscaping projects. These workers, often Latino, are rarely provided with the safety equipment they need, such as harnesses, safety goggles, ear protection and helmets. This leads to unnecessary construction accidents and more severe, permanent injuries.
Any worker who has been injured at work, or on a South Fork, Long Island construction or landscaping site, should contact Attorney Chris Redmond, who also speaks Spanish, as soon as possible after the accident to learn his rights to file a New York workers compensation claim. Even workers who are off-the-books or are in the US illegally can file a workers compensation claim, and doing so will not lead to deportation. Call 631-399-0400 and ask to speak to Mr. Redmond’s assistant, Carmen Rosado (x110) to schedule an appointment in our new Sag Harbor Office.
