Hansen said. “Thanks to the Special Master, claimants will have ample time to fill out the forms.

Posted in Firm News & Events, Health Info, Labor News, NY Workers Compensation Claims, Zadroga 9/11 Compensation Fund Claims

I will be giving my annual New York Workers’ Compensation Law lecture tomorrow night at St. John’s Law School at the invitation of Prof. David Gregory, one of the country’s preeminent labor law experts. This year my Workers’ Compensation Law lecture takes on particular significance as the this week marks the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire tragedy in lower Manhattan, which was the seminal event leading to the establishment of workers’ compensation laws throughout the country. 146 workers lost their lives either in the fire or jumping from the building. In a eeirly sad coincidence, it just so happens that this year is also the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center Disaster. It took 90 years for the WTC disaster to eclipse the Triangle Factory Fire as New York’s most deadly workplace accident.

In addition, this year has brought the passage of the new James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010.
