NY woman takes Starbucks to court over spilled coffee at airport

New York resident Jessica Pyne filed a lawsuit against coffeehouse chain Starbucks Corp. in the Harris County 215th District Court on October 12, 2016. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff is alleging that she suffered burns to the lower half of her body when a barista spilled a hot cup of coffee on her in the Starbucks at the George Bush International Airport.

According to Pyne’s lawsuit, she was at a stopover at the Bush Airport on October 13, 2014, when she got off her plane and went to the airport Starbucks to buy a coffee.

Brooklyn Middle School Cleared of Toxic Soil

Recently, Brooklyn’s John Ericsson Middle School 126 has finally been cleared of its Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) contaminated soil.

The middle school’s perimeter had tested positive for the presence of PCBs back in 2011. It was suspected that buildings that experienced construction work between 1950-1977 could have been exposed to the toxic substance due to the caulk used during that time. John Ericsson Middle School was found to have more than the acceptable limit of PCBs in 4306 square feet surrounding the building along its perimeter. The removal project costing $520,000 took nearly a month to complete as approximately 320 cubic yards of soil was removed from the premise.

PCBs are a known carcinogen that has been linked to causing cancer in many citizens across the nation. Despite this, New York City Department of Education claim that there should be no health concerns involving the contaminant. Toxic substances can be located in even the most unsuspecting places. They often lack a distinct scent or any other outward indication of its presence. If you or someone you love has been exposed to toxic substances, contact Hach & Rose, LLP today at (212) 779-0057 to learn more about your legal options.


City of New York awards $2.5M to slip and fall victim

A Bronx Supreme Court jury in New York awarded $2,500,000 to James Register, who slipped and fell over a 2-inch rise in the sidewalk in front of 1890 Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. Register incurred multiple fractures to his nose and suffered from a concussion as a result of his fall.

The defendants, KNW Apartment LLC and Urban American Management, LLC, were already issued a citation three years ago by the City of New York, which ordered them to make proper repairs to the defect. Fixing the defect would have cost the companies a mere $18,000. A different victim tripped over the same sidewalk rise in 2015 and was also hurt, though that victim sustained less extreme injuries.

NTSB says gas line with poor welding caused New York explosion

The National Transportation Safety Board recently stated that the cause of a fatal natural gas explosion last year in New York was due to a poorly welded gas line, USA Today reported on June 9.

The accident, which occurred on March 12 of last year, resulted in the deaths of eight people and injuries of 50 others. A sewer leak apparently undermined the gas line, 60% of which was found to not be properly welded. The solvent used to clean the area was alcohol, which is not the most effective substance.

The contractor in charge of the welding, a worker with Consolidated Edison, had credentials that expired a month before working on the project in December 2011.

Another issue that contributed to the explosion was lack of response time. According to reports, people smelled gas the night before the explosion but did not report it in time.

Gas drilling company not liable for contaminated well water

United States District Judge Charles Siragusa in Rochester, New York denied a claim put forth in December by nine southern New York homeowners that their drinking water had been contaminated by gas drilling, the Bellingham Herald reported.

The claim was filed against Colorado-based Anschutz Exploration Corp., who had established gas drilling half a mile from the homeowners’ residences.

The homeowners claimed in the lawsuit that mud and methane were found in their water after Anschutz’s first gas well was completed. However, Anschutz field experts came up with laboratory analyses that showed the methane found in the residents’ water wells did not come from the geological formation tapped by their gas wells.

Court documents also showed that Department of Environmental Conservation inspector Joseph Yarosz stated in his final deposition that Anschutz complied with all permit conditions after having inspected the two gas wells over 50 times as they were being constructed in the town of Big Flats in 2010.
