New York Construction Attorney Recognized by Leading Lawyer Sources

New York Construction Attorney Recognized by Leading Lawyer Sources










New York, NY (PRWEB) January 15, 2008

For David Perecman, New York construction attorney, the courtroom is his realm. Within its walls there is no option but to win his construction accident cases – a very good reason why he has, in a single year been recognized as a leading personal injury lawyer in New York by four primary sources for individual attorney recognition–the New York Law Journal, SuperLawyers, Lawdragons, and The Best Lawyers in America®. The founding partner at Perecman & Fanning, a New York personal injury firm handling all types of serious injury cases, Mr. Perecman has achieved particularly notable results within the field of his expertise, construction accident cases. His impeccable track record in construction accident law speaks for his talents as a litigator. “The easy part is complete and thorough preparation. The more difficult part is the ability to present things in the courtroom in a non-lawyer like fashion, to be a regular guy, and someone to whom jurors can relate. If they like you and trust you, they will be more inclined to decide a case in your client’s favor,” he says.

His successful jury verdicts have taught him that personal injury lawyers that try their clients’ cases will often get better results than if they’d settled. Mr. Perecman refuses to fall prey to the underlying fear of loss that prevents some personal injury lawyers from going to trial. Instead of highlighting a case’s potential problems as a rationale for accepting a settlement, Mr. Perecman sees each potential liability in his client’s cases as a double-edged sword. Most problems when treated with his disarming trademark humor can be turned around and used against the defense. Take, for example, construction accident cases in which undocumented aliens are injured on the job, a point oft-highlighted by the opposing counsel when attempting to prejudice the jury against the victim, and one Mr. Perecman has addressed numerous times. “When you’re standing up on a scaffold 70 feet off the ground for /hr, you’re boss calls you hard-working cheap labor. After you fall and break up your body, NOW you’re an illegal alien. When juries hear that, they get angry at the defense for even having brought it up.”

His lack of hesitation to try a construction accident case coupled with his formidable track record is a weapon in itself, and his adversaries’ knowledge of this likely course towards the courtroom tends to produce better results. As Mr. Perecman puts it, “I tell the defendant point blank, either pay me or beat me. Some choose to pay, others–well–there are always appeals”.

Recognizing his professional and civic duties, Mr. Perecman is involved politically, having testified as the Secretary of the New York State Trial Lawyer’s Association and as a Chair of the Labor Law Committee before New York State Assembly committees about the topic of height-related worker safety as well as having met with the Mayor Bloomberg’s task force assigned to inquire into the recent rise in construction accidents, specifically scaffold-related deaths. He also authors related articles, lobbies for consumer protection and worker safety and lectures personal injury lawyers and court personnel regarding construction accident law.

About Perecman & Fanning

For the past 25 years, the New York personal injury lawyers at Perecman & Fanning have concentrated on complex construction accident legal issues, as well as championing all other types of personal injury cases. Perecman & Fanning have recovered over million in verdicts and settlements over the past year alone.

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.

Robert Aronov, New York Personal Injury Lawyer, Offers Important Tips on Choosing the Right Attorney

Robert Aronov, New York Personal Injury Lawyer, Offers Important Tips on Choosing the Right Attorney










Jamaica, NY (PRWEB) January 4, 2008

Individuals who are injured in an accident that results from someone else’s negligence have a very important choice to make: who to select as a lawyer to represent them.

The choice of a personal injury attorney, says Robert Aronov, may well be the most important step for accident victims on the road to recovery. Aronov, a prominent New York personal injury lawyer, believes that in many instances the choice of a personal injury attorney can have more bearing on how victims ultimately feel about the resolution of their complaints than the pure financial award.

“Money alone is seldom what accident victims seek when they bring a lawsuit,” Aronov says. “Often, the pursuit of justice and a desire to obtain vindication is equally if not more important,” he says.

Aronov says that lawyers who only represent their clients’ financial claims can be insensitive to their clients’ emotional claims. “Our job is to try – often against impossible odds, to restore our clients’ lives as closely as possible to their pre-accident states,” Aronov says. “In that respect, spiritual recovery often is as vital a step in the healing process as financial restitution.”

Aronov advises accident victims to ask attorneys who they are thinking about retaining just how much face-to-face personal time they will receive while pursuing justice. Aronov, himself, deliberately restricts the number of cases he and his colleagues at Robert Aronov & Associates accept in order to ensure that each client gets close, personal attention.

“Ask a prospective attorney, ‘How many cases do you currently represent,'” Aronov recommends. If the answer is many hundreds or thousands, ask the attorney how he or she will find time to give you and your case the personalized care you deserve, he adds.

“An attorney who obtains a decent financial settlement for clients but never takes the time to meet with them or to address their emotional needs, only heals part of their wounds,” Aronov says. “Accidents victims have already forfeited some control of their lives. The last thing they need is to lose control over their own cases,” he adds. “The reason we call our profession ‘Personal Injury Law’ is because the cases are very personal to those bringing them.”

For more information on how to select a competent and caring personal injury lawyer, contact Robert Aronov & Associates, with five convenient offices in Queens, Brooklyn and New York City. You may phone 718-206-1555 or visit the firm’s site at http://www.accidentattorneyinjury.com.

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.

David Perecman and The Perecman Firm, PLLC:

For the past 30 years, the New York personal injury lawyers, auto accident, construction accident, and medical malpractice lawyers at The Perecman Firm, PLLC have championed all types of cases for personal injury accidents.
