Disability Claim Law Firm of Turley, Redmond Rosasco & Rosasco, LLP
Contact me for a copy of my PowerPoint materials for this Social Security Disability claim seminar.
The Law Firm of Turley, Redmond, Rosasco & Rosasco, LLP is proud to announce the launch of their own Internet Informational Disability and Compensation Claim Video Channel, in addition to their new You Tube Disability Law Channel. Our lawyers have produced 50 helpful videos covering topics such as Zadroga 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund Claims, New York Workers’ Compensation Fund Claims, Construction Site Accidents, Social Security Disability Claims, Long Term Disability Claims and New York Civil Service Disability Pensions.
For the attorneys at Turley, Redmond, Rosasco & Rosasco, this is what Christmas time is all about. In that spirit, we wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year! May no injuries or disabilities visit your doorstep in 2011. For those struggling with injury or illness already, may 2011 bring you the a quick and complete recovery.
If the Zadroga 9/11 Compensation bill passes at this time of year, the verse “Hark the Herald Angel Sings… God and some “Republicans” reconcile !” should be sung from the church pews. Merry Christmas!
That is, unless Republican Senator Tom “Scrooge” Coburn gets in the way! (see his cruel opposition paper to the Zadroga Victims Compensation Bill here).
Many say passage of the Detective James Zadroga Bill in the US Senate is all up to Chuck Schumer now. Not so. Many first responders unfairly closed out of the most recent mega 9/11 settlement may only have the Zadroga Bill to fall back on – and they are just as sick as the ones now being compensated in the lawsuits approved by Judge Alvin Hellerstein

As an Air Force veteran myself, it was reassuring to know that so many talented veteran disability claim lawyers were in attendance at the National Organization of Veterans’ Attorneys (NOVA) conference last week in Washington, DC. My partner David Tobias and I attended, and as always, there was much to learn. If there was one thing that stood out in… Continue Reading

Congratulations to my friend and fellow long term disability attorney Eve-Lynn Gisonni on her significant victory at the New York State Court of Appeals in Benesowitz v. MetLife. This decision is a great victory for long term disability claimants who are denied benefits due to a "pre-existing condition clause" in their employer’s LTD Summary Plan Description. Credit is also… Continue Reading

However, the United States Veterans’ Administration has done an awful job over the years by denying legitimate VA Disability claims and allowing the system to… Continue Reading
