Not only have we recovered millions for our clients, we have made history doing so.
When deciding on a personal injury law firm, you won’t find many that have changed the course of the law in New York for construction workers. The Platta Law Firm, PLLC did just that. In 2011, our firm litigated a case called Wilinski v. 334 E. 92nd Hous. Dev. Fund. Corp., before the state’s highest court, which resulted in a significant change in the law and added further protections to workers. This case also involved a worker who was injured by a falling object, specifically a falling pipe. Our commitment in the Wilinski case not only helped our client, but marked a major victory for construction workers all over the state. Because of the expansion of the law we achieved in Wilinski, construction workers who in the past would have been denied the compensation for their injuries are now able to get the money they need to pay their medical bills and support their families.
We bring this same kind of commitment and expertise to all of our cases. While we have changed the law concerning falling pipes and other falling objects, we represent all kinds of injured people. Our personal injury law firm dedicates itself construction accidents (Labor Law), motor vehicle accidents, premises accidents, and workers’ compensation claims.
