Partner Edward Steinberg, presented the Legistlative Update at the Decisions seminar held in Westchester County.   Each year, the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, holds a conference where attorney’s in the field of negligence law speak on varying topics and recent updates.  Last month, Edward Steinberg of Leav & Steinberg was selected to speak on the legistlative changes in New York.  Many of these changes are critical to helping those victims injured as a result of the negligence of others.

Among the most important changes was the change in the law called Laverne’s Law.

Lavern’s Law was recently signed into law by Governor Cuomo on January 31st, 2018, after recent Senate (53-1) and Assembly (104-8) amendments were passed on Tuesday, January 30, 2018.

TI Rap concert
As we reported previously here on May 30th, 2016 Leav & Steinberg, LLP was retained by several individuals who sustained serious and significant injuries at the T.I. Rap Concert.

For many excited concerts goers and fans, the night of May 25, 2016, was supposed to be filled with fun and music at rap artist, T.I.’s, New York concert held at Irving Plaza. Unfortunately, due to inadequate security measure and substandard emergency protocol, violence and gun fire erupted during the show inside New York’s famous music venue tragically leaving one person dead and others seriously injured.

Two of our clients at Leav and Steinberg, LLP were at the T.I concert at Irving Plaza to have fun and enjoy the show at the time of the shooting. They could have never expected that moments later they would be fleeing for their lives. At some point during the show, gun fire inside Irving Plaza sparked mayhem and chaos which quickly combined with overcrowded conditions that spread throughout the venue causing patrons inside the venue to flee to the nearest exits.

New York is known for its high-rise apartment buildings. Whether the building has apartments or condominiums, tenants expect plumping, heating, cooling, and other parts of the building to be kept in good repair. One part of an apartment that dwellers expect to be solid is their balcony. On Thursday August 1, 2013, a woman fell to her death from her 17th-floor balcony. The railing surrounding her balcony gave way and she lost her life.

Balcony railing gives way

The woman was on a date and went onto her balcony to smoke a cigarette. She perched on the wide metal railing along the edge of her balcony. The metal railing the woman sat on gave way. Then “she fell 140 feet to the construction scaffolding a the base of the building, at 400 East 57th Street, and died from the impact.” “A photo of the corner balcony of the apartment where [the woman] lived shows the top who metal railings bent down in a V-shape.”

Creepy crawlies belong outside, not in houses. People try many different methods to discourage bugs from entering their homes, whether it be a house or an apartment. There are many products one can use to kill bugs and keep them out of the home. But these products contain a lot of chemicals and can harm humans as much as bugs. And one needs to be cautious because these chemicals are highly flammable, as was shown in the fogger explosion in Chinatown recently.

Exploding Bug Bombs

A woman had a problem with bugs infesting her apartment. She purchased foggers, also known as bug bombs, to deal with the problem. Foggers release a fine mist of chemicals into the air that filter into walls and small places to kill bugs. “A single six-ounce can is enough to treat 6,000 cubic feet of space, which translates roughly to an 800-square-foot apartment with a seven-foot ceiling.”
