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.

New York Truck Driver Watching Porn Kills Mother, Appalls Personal Injury Lawyers Such As David Perecman



New York, NY (PRWEB) February 9, 2010

A truck driver killed a mother of two while he was watching pornographic movies on his laptop computer, according to New York state police. His truck crashed into her disabled car on the New York State Thruway. The accident happened last month near Buffalo, New York. Personal injury lawyers, including David Perecman, are appalled at the recklessness of the truck driver.

The rig driver, 45-year-old Thomas Wallace was arrested Tuesday, charged with second-degree manslaughter. Thirty-three-year-old Julie Stratton was the victim.

Police established that Wallace was distracted by a pornographic movie after they tested the laptop found in the truck.

The New York Daily News also reports that Wallace had slept for no more than four hours over a 27-hour period before the accident, violating federal trucking rules for commercial drivers to be on the road.

Stratton’s car was disabled at the time of the crash because she hit a deer. She had called 911 and was waiting for help to arrive.

“What this truck driver was doing was dangerous and, even worse, 100% preventable,” said New York personal injury lawyer Perecman. “Driving a truck is a tremendous responsibility and truckers and trucking corporations need to take safety seriously.

A study by Virginia Tech’s Transportation Institute found that texting truck drivers are 23 times more likely to be involved in a crash or near miss. Last week, the federal government enacted regulations that prohibit truck and bus drivers from texting with any cell phone or other handheld device that distracts a driver’s attention from the road. New York personal injury lawyers at the Perecman Firm vigorously supported these regulations.

“Preventing road accidents relies heavily on drivers using their own good judgment and common sense : then you hear of something like this and wonder just how many regulations need to be passed,” added Perecman.

Deadly New York Fuel Truck Explosion Closes the Long Island Expressway and Draws the Attention of Personal Injury Lawyer, David Perecman



New York, NY (PRWEB) February 2, 2010

In an unfortunate accident spectacular enough to make the national news, a fuel truck flipped and exploded on New York’s Long Island Expressway. Approximately 200 feet of road melted in the fire. The intense heat also melted the supports for a giant road sign, which collapsed across all 8 lanes, alerting New York injury lawyers.

The 57-year-old driver, a Brooklyn resident, was killed in the accident which occurred on Saturday.

New York personal injury lawyer David Perecman is quick to point out that this accident is as tragic as the many “unknown” accidents that happen every day.

“Approximately every 10 seconds of every day, lives are forever changed throughout the nation due to vehicular accidents,” said Perecman.

Auto accidents happen so frequently, the majority of them aren’t even newsworthy. However, friends and families of any accident victims can be left overwhelmed and in indescribable pain.

‘It’s the job of any New York personal injury lawyer to get spectacular claim for injury and loss suffered whether there are cameras on the scene or not,” said Perecman.

Personal Injury Lawyer in New York – The Perecman Firm

As a personal injury lawyer who handles trip and fall and slip and fall injury settlements in New York, one particular case comes to mind. There were a lot of things that I did in this case, to end up winning it. The things that I thought was amazing, may not amaze other people. Probably the result will. That the person had been with another attorney who wanted to settle their slip and fall injuries case. And ultimately the amount of money that I got this person was close to a hundred times as much as their personal bodily injury lawsuits lawyer wanted them to settle for. Literally, close to a hundred times as much. All that was involved was a claim, by the landlord, that this person hadn’t fallen on broken stairs that day. Because the stairs had been repaired. And how did they know? Because they had a brand new superintendent who just came on board and that was his first job, he fixed them. And he started three days before her personal injury slip and fall accident. And they were fixed. And he came in and he testified to that, too. And everybody put their hands up and they said, well that’s sort of the end of it. Now what are we going to do? And I just remember looking in that super and that landlords eyes, when they were testifying, and I didnt believe them. Personal bodily injury lawsuits in New York can bring large settlements, and defendants may lie to avoid payment. So I went to the judge and I said, You know what judge, it’s called making a motion. I said, I want
