Drafting Wills & Trusts to Meet Your Needs
Are you an adult who owns property? Then you need to have an estate plan. An estate plan tells your representative and the courts what to do with your property if you pass away, or how to manage your healthcare, finances and legal affairs if you become even temporarily incapacitated. Everybody’s needs are different, so we take the time to sit down with you and discuss what is important to you and come up with a customized estate plan that works for you. We’ll draft the right set of wills, trusts and advance directives that ensure you and your loved ones are taken care of during your lifetime and after you are gone, the way you would want it to be.
Helping You Get Compensation for Workplace Injuries
If you get hurt on the job, your employer owes you workers’ compensation. Additionally, if another party, such as an outside contractor, is responsible for the injury, you have a negligence claim as well. Finally, construction workers in New York benefit from the Scaffold Law, which holds property owners and contractors absolutely liable for work injuries caused by falls, struck-by falling objects, or other elevation-related hazards when the right protections weren’t put in place. With all the different parties who may be liable and all the different ways to bring a claim, it’s essential to have a skilled and knowledgeable workplace accident attorney on your side who can guide you on the right path to compensation for a job injury.
