Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC, accident attorneys, was recently recognized for having 4 of the top 25 settlements in New York State for 2014. The firm was recognized for having successfully represented multiple construction accident victims, as well as a pedestrian that was killed in a bus accident. In all three construction accident cases, a failure to provide proper ladders, scaffolds, and life lines were involved. Owners and contractors are required by law to provide proper safety equipment to construction workers to prevent injury. This applies to construction of new buildings, renovations, repairs, pointing, and painting, as well as other similar type work.
In all four cases Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC won summary judgment on liability for their clients. This meant that the Court had already decided that the Oresky firm’s clients had won their cases and were entitled to proceed to a jury trial to see how much a jury would award them in money damages.
While prior results do not guarantee a future similar outcome, the results in these cases demonstrate a consistent pattern of hard work by the Oresky firm.
