Must Know Info: Municipal Liability and Bus Accidents

In a new Must Know Info article, New York City personal injury attorney Michael Rose outlines the firm’s strategy for municipal bus accident cases and highlights some recent cases the firm has handled.

When a person is injured in a bus accident, it is important their attorney treats the case as though a trial is inevitable. That way, the amount of evidence gathered and experts consulted will be a great benefit to either securing a settlement before trial or provide a strong head start for when the case makes it to the courts.

Must Know Info: Third Party Claims

In a new article, attorney Michael Rose discusses how, in some workplace injury cases, it is possible for the injured person to hold a third party accountable for their injuries.

Filing for workers’ compensation benefits excludes you from suing your employer most of the time. However, if it can be shown that a third party, an entity that is separate from your employer, was negligent, that party can be held liable for your injuries as well. This can make a dramatic difference in the amount of compensation available to an injured worker.

Hach & Rose, LLP, shares must know info about fusion surgery

Recently, Hach & Rose, LLP, shared critical information regarding the benefits of fusion surgery. This surgery, which is often conducted on the spine, neck, or ankle, is often necessary to relieving people of day-to-day pains or providing them with greater mobility and function.

Furthermore, because of the serious injuries that victims of accidents such as construction accidents, car accidents, or slip and falls sustain, fusion surgeries are often critical. Unfortunately, these surgeries can be quite expensive, making it difficult for a person to cover the full cost.

Fortunately, people who need these surgeries as a result of an injury caused by another person’s negligence can often get the costs of the surgery covered through a personal injury claim, something our lawyers at Hach & Rose, LLP, have had great success with.

Hurricane Sandy Damages

Hurricane Sandy, which recently struck the Eastern seaboard and left residents in many states without power, may eventually become the most damaging hurricane in the history of the United States. Even before the storm struck, many were estimating that property damages alone would exceed $30 billion, and some are now claiming that the costs could be even higher. While these economic damages in no way compare with the loss of life that a storm can cause, the financial toll that they can take can have a devastating effect on the lives of affected individuals and families.

Fortunately, many of those who suffered property damage in Hurricane Sandy were insured for these types of damages, and will be able to file a claim for compensation for their losses. However, in some cases, it can be difficult to actually get these claims fulfilled. Often, insurance companies will seek out ways to deny their customers’ claims. For instance, a homeowner whose policy only covered flood damage may be denied compensation on the basis that they mainly suffered wind damage. Homeowners struggling to recover from this terrible situation shouldn’t have to worry about this issue, as well. Contact a qualified attorney today at (212) 779-0057 to learn more about your rights and options in this situation.
