The Platta Law Firm, PLLC will represent the legal interests of the family of Mr. Stanislaw Supinski, one of the two victims of yesterday’s horrific wall collapse in Lower Manhattan. Mr. Supinski was assisting in the demolition of a Synagogue located on the Lower East Side of Manhattan when an exterior brick wall collapsed, trapping him beneath the rubble. He was rushed to a nearby hospital but did not survive his injuries.
“In the wake of such tragedies, the first priority is to be there for a grieving family and ask if such a horrendous circumstance could have been prevented. The State of New York has very specific regulations which are intended to keep workers safe. Yesterday, the system failed the Supinski family. We will do our best to hold the wrongdoers responsible for this unnecessary tragic accident” says Slawomir W. Platta, the Principal of The Platta Law Firm.
The Platta Law Firm is known for winning the case of Wilinski v. 334 East 92nd Housing Development Fund Corp. in the highest court of the New York State (Court of Appeals), fundamentally changing construction law in the very same accidents as Mr. Supinski’s. Thanks to this legal victory, victims of construction accidents, like Mr. Supiński’s family, are entitled to compensation for the loss of their loved ones.
