David H. Perecman, a Veteran New York Personal Injury Lawyer, Sues New York City for Wrong Imprisonment

David H. Perecman, a Veteran New York Personal Injury Lawyer, Sues New York City for Wrong Imprisonment










New York, NY (PRWEB) December 6, 2007

David H. Perecman, a veteran personal injury lawyer from New York City and co-founder of the personal injury law firm of Perecman & Fanning, filed suit in April against New York City on behalf of a woman who spent unlawful jail time in New York State and was wrongly imprisoned at Riker’s Island Penitentiary for four years.

The civil rights court case, number 24709/07, filed in Queens County, claims that Lourdes Torres, a 31-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico with a very low IQ, was forced to give a confession to detectives regarding a murder of her lover that she did not commit. In January, almost four years after DNA evidence pointed to other killers and after defense attorney Edward Sapone took Ms. Torres’ criminal case, the Queens’ District Attorney dropped murder charges against her.

Mr. Sapone consulted with Mr. Perecman, one of the top personal injury lawyers in New York City, and recommended the court case to him for a civil suit.

In April, Mr. Perecman filed a civil action against New York City based on claims of wrongful imprisonment and failing to follow up on DNA and other evidence leading to the real murderers. Mr. Perecman is asking for million on behalf of his client who served unlawful jail time in New York State.

“This is an egregious case of a coerced confession and New York City detectives not following up on available evidence that could have led to the real murder,” says Mr. Perecman. “Ms. Torres spent four years behind bars unjustly and now she is seeking justice for her cause.”

Perecman & Fanning’s reputation as a high-quality personal injury law firm has been built on 25 years of representing victims of accidents and other injustices throughout New York City. The dedicated lawyers at Perecman & Fanning doggedly advocate for victims of various accidents and their families to make sure that they recover for their injuries and their suffering.

New York Personal Injury Lawyer, David Perecman, says New Playground is No Place for Kids

New York Personal Injury Lawyer, David Perecman, says New Playground is No Place for Kids











New York (PRWEB) April 28, 2010

Playtime is over at the 0,000 Brooklyn Bridge Park playground, which was shut down this week. Less than a month after it opened, the much-anticipated playground was declared a danger to children in order to avoid personal injury. Three steel climbing domes sitting uncovered and under the sun, were under criticism after reaching 128 degrees and burning children.

“This situation is most unfortunate. You would think a landscape architecture firm would have been able to foresee this problem,” said David Perecman, a personal injury lawyer who works out of New York.

The foam safety surfacing is also in need of repair. The flooring has small holes all over it.

Park officials are examining the options they have for dealing with the scorching metal orbs. To temporarily address the problem, park officials erected temporary tents over them. However, these shades need to be shifted throughout the day to make sure the metal surfaces stay covered as the sun moves across the sky.

Outside the park, warning signs read “Steel dome play structures can be hot”

Parents believe designers placed aesthetics before safety.

New York’s personal injury lawyers recommend that the city find a smart solution quickly, before children are out for the summer.

The legal responsibility is with the property owner, whether private individual or city, to make sure the property is safe. The law holds the owner responsible for injuries if they were aware of the dangerous condition and did not take the necessary steps to correct it. An owner can also be liable if it was obvious that the owner should have known about a hazard or a potential hazard and did not do what was necessary to prevent injury.

“Park officials are now aware of the danger and the danger has been well documented. At this point, negligence will not be hard to argue if the city does nothing, or does not do enough, and another child is hurt,” said Perecman.

Perecman is optimistic New York City will find a solution. This incident also prompted protective action that may prevent situations like this from occurring again.

As reported by The New York Post >, a bill requiring the city to test playground equipment for safety concerns before the equipment is installed is now being considered by the state Assembly.
