In a new video FAQ, attorney Michael Rose discusses your rights when it comes to reporting an injury or for filing a lawsuit over an injury that occurred while on the job. People are often concerned that their employer may choose to fire them for filing a lawsuit, but as attorney Rose points out, this should not be a concern. There are protections in place for injured workers in New York, and if you’ve been hurt in an accident, you have the right to take legal action without fear of retaliation from your employer.
If you or someone close to you has been hurt in a construction accident, you have the right to seek compensation from your employer’s workers’ comp policy. If they wrongly deny your claim or choose to offer you less than what you should be paid to cover your medical bills and other expenses, an experienced attorney may be able to help you secure the compensation that you need.

We are proud and humbled to announce that Hach & Rose, LLP has moved to a new, larger space at 112 Madison Avenue, 10th floor. Over fifteen years ago, we started our law firm with little more than a vision and a tiny low-rent office. Our vision was to become one of the best personal injury law firms in New York; defining “best” in terms of providing the best possible representation to each and every client who trusted us with their case. There were three of us in the beginning – Greg, Mike and Filomena (Filomena was our first employee who now runs the office). Even with limited resources and only a handful of cases, we never lost sight of our vision.
Fifteen years later, we have proudly seen our vision come to fruition through the thousands of people who have trusted us to represent them, and the achievement of obtaining over $250 million in verdicts and settlements on their behalf. This success has allowed us to grow into a powerful law firm – with unlimited resources, new state of the art office space, and a talented staff of attorneys and support personnel – to fight the largest insurance companies and corporations.
The larger we grow, the more compelled we are to stay true to our original vision to provide the best possible service to our clients. Large or small, we commit to preparing each and every case for trial which enables us to maximize recovery for our clients. This is not a small or subtle commitment to our clients. It is the difference between accepting a “low-ball” offer from an insurance company of $50,000 or doing the hard work to obtain a verdict or settlement for over $500,000.
Recent examples include: a jury verdict of over 12.8 million dollars for a woman injured by defective construction, a jury verdict of 1.4 million for an injured railroad worker, and a jury verdict of $225,000 for a person injured in an automobile accident. These jury verdicts let insurance companies and those who defend the negligent know that if the settlement offer is not ideal for our client, we will take the case to trial.
We deeply appreciate the support of each and every client who has trusted us with their case over the past 15 years. We understand that without them, we would not exist. We look forward to serving people by investing our best efforts to obtain the best possible outcome on their behalf.
Very truly yours,
Senior partner and lead trial attorney of Hach & Rose, LLP, Michael Rose, has added to the must-know-information released by the firm. He talks about the risks and rewards of taking a case to trial instead of accepting a settlement.
The article, titled The Risks, Rewards, and Pitfalls of Putting Your Case Before a Jury, lists an example of when sending a case to trial might be a good idea and when it might not, as well as other decisions that must be made regardless of the chances of winning a case.

The team at Hach & Rose, LLP are proud to be featured in New York magazine’s “New York’s Leading Lawyers, 2017”. For the past fifteen years, the firm has distinguished itself as one of the most accomplished and preeminent personal injury law firms. The article sums up the firm’s goals and accomplishments: “Founded on the simple principles of always placing the client’s needs first and aggressively pursuing the highest recovery possible, the firm sets itself apart. They have accomplished in excess of $250 million in jury verdicts and settlements with the proven ability to effectively advocate on behalf of their clients.”
In addition, partners Michael Rose and Greg Hach were asked about their commitment to their clients. Senior Partner Michael Rose told the magazine: ““regardless of the case value, if we commit to taking on a case the efforts are always the same.”
Senior Partner Greg Hach added: “Each of our cases is prepared with the assumption it will ultimately resolve in the courtroom. Defendants understand this and that places us in the best position to achieve remarkable recoveries,” notes Managing Partner Gregory Hach. “Some of our most notable results have been achieved after a client, frustrated by the legal process, hired our firm to fight for them. One client that had been pressured by a previous attorney to settle for less than $100,000 recovered over $2 million after retaining Hach & Rose. An injured construction worker told us that his attorney recommended a $60,000 settlement. We obtained a $2 million settlement.” Such successes are bittersweet explains Hach, “it’s satisfying to know the client achieving the greater recovery will have a better life, but for every client this describes, there are countless others taking the lower settlement amount. That is tough to swallow.”

In a new article posted to our Must Know Info page, New York City personal injury attorney Michael Rose discusses how having a previous injury should not have any effect on a new injury’s value in a settlement or verdict.
Insurance companies and their defenders would argue that because a person had, for example, a previous back injury, a new injury to that person’s back is worth less in terms of their financial liability. This is untrue. Whether the injury existed before the accident or not is irrelevant since the cost of treating it after the accident is the issue at hand.
For more in-depth analysis on this topic, read Michael Rose’s post, Prior injury does not mean your recovery should be reduced.
If you suffered a repeat injury, do not let the insurers sell you short. Contact a personal injury attorney from Hach & Rose, LLP, by calling (212) 779-0057 to get the representation need after being injured in an accident.
