Wilinski v. 334 East 92nd Housing development Fund Corp

Our NYC Personal Injury Attorneys Changed Construction Law for the Better

Other personal injury attorneys in New York City don’t have the same kind of track record as The Platta Law Firm when it comes to protecting construction workers. In 2011, our firm litigated a case called Wilinski v. 334 E. 92nd Hous. Dev. Fund. Corp. before the state’s highest court. This case involved a worker injured by falling objects, specifically, unsecured plumbing pipes. The successful resolution of the case resulted in a considerable change in construction labor law and added further protections for workers. 

Our commitment in the Wilinski case helped our client but did even more. It was a major victory for construction workers all over the state. Because of the expansion of the law we achieved in Wilinski, construction workers won another victory. Those denied compensation in the past can now get the money they need and deserve. Because of this, they can pay their medical bills and support their families.

We bring this same kind of commitment and expertise to all of our cases. While we changed the law concerning falling pipes and other objects, we represent clients injured in other ways. We provide the same passion and intensity to all our cases.

How Our NYC Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help

Our attorneys are also unequaled when it comes to handling car accident and premises liability cases. It is our priority to make sure clients get necessary medical treatment, both in the present and the future. Many times, no-fault and private insurance carriers will try to short-change them. The Platta Law Firm never allows an insurer to undervalue a client’s case. We know their tactics and how to combat them effectively.

At The Platta Law Firm, we are proud of our client-first approach. Our goal is the successful resolution of your case with the best possible outcome, so you and your family can move forward without financial worries. Our top NYC personal injury lawyers have secured tens of millions of dollars for our clients over the years. We have been continuously recognized by our peers as “Super Lawyers.”
