Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, Urges Safety vs. Intense Rivalry in School Sports.

September 11, 2015

 

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, says that as the popularity of team sports increase so do the number of injuries.

 

Utica, NY, September 08, 2015: Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, has posted a new blog on the law offices website entitled “Back to School Means An Increase In Sports Related Injuries.” Some kids look forward to going back to school more for the team sports than the studying.

 

Pearlman acknowledges this as she writes, “Back to school means back to sports or first time sport try-outs for many kids. Football, soccer, cheerleading, gymnastics, baseball, basketball, volleyball, hockey, you name it, kids of all ages are participating in team sports in record numbers.” She continues adding, “As those numbers increase so do the injuries. Millions of middle school, high school and college age boys and girls across the country are injured participating in sports annually.”

 

Healthy competition can spur people on to greater accomplishments and Pearlman recognizes the importance of team sports for this. She writes, “Team sports are valuable activities that teach children a variety of skills that can apply to all areas of life.” “However,” she adds, “safety must be the priority in any sport. It must take precedence over intense competitiveness when the health and wellbeing of children are at stake. Accidents do happen. Sometimes those accidents can be fatal.”

 

Pearlman cites football injury statistics from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, stating that, “more than 920,000 football-related injuries among boys under the age of 18 are reported on an annual basis nationwide. Most of those injuries are reported shortly after the school year begins and prior to the end of football season.”

 

Pearlman includes a list of the most common football related injuries published by the College of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine at the University of Washington.

 

According to Pearlman, “These injuries are not exclusive to football. No matter what sport your children are involved in, be aware of the signs of injuries that could result in long-term disabilities or possibly death if left untreated.” She urges, “Teach your children that sports and competition are fun but their health and safety are always the primary concern. So, have fun and be safe!”

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, Promotes Awareness to Prevent Drowning Deaths.

August 31, 2015

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, recognizes that while drowning accidents are highly preventable they still happen when safety precautions are not kept top of mind or not adhered to.

 

Utica, NY, August 25, 2015: Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, has posted a new article on the law offices website entitled “Drowning Accidents are Heartbreaking, Yet Highly Preventable.” Nothing is more heartbreaking than losing a child in a drowning accident that happens from a momentary lapse of attention.

 

As Ms. Brindisi Pearlman writes, “According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPSC), “From Memorial Day through Labor Day 2014, at least 174 children between the ages of 1 and 14 drowned in swimming pools or spas.” She adds, “According to the same report 112 of those 174 drowning victims were children younger than age 5. “

 

Pearlman urges mindfulness saying, “With Labor Day right around the corner and plans to take advantage of the end of summer warm weather, it is important to keep safety in mind wherever you may be. Whether boating or enjoying the many beaches around the lakes, rivers and seashores or in the backyard swimming pool, public pool or a fancy spa, safety must always be a priority.”

 

According to Pearlman, even though children under the age of 5 are more often at risk in swimming pools, “beaches have a much higher average drowning rate than pools. There are several probable factors for this, which include water depth and clarity, currents and bottom conditions.”

 

Pearlman provides Safety Guidelines from Pool Safety, a national public education campaign run by the USCPSc. As Pearlman states, “Their goal with this effort is to reduce the number of children who drown in swimming pools and spas. According to their website, “For the third year, the campaign is focusing on populations most at risk of drowning: minorities and children younger than age 5.

 

Never leave a child unattended in a pool or spa and always watch your children closely around all bodies of water.

Designate a Water Watcher to supervise children in the pool or spa. This person should not be reading, texting, using a smart phone or be otherwise distracted

Learn how to swim, and teach your child how to swim.

Learn how to perform CPR on children and adults.

Keep children away from pool drains, pipes and other openings to avoid entrapments.

Ensure any pool and spa you use has drain covers that comply with federal safety standards, and, if you do not know, ask your pool service provider about safe drain covers.

(http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Newsroom/News-Releases/2014/End-of-Summer-Snapshot-At-Least-174-Child-Drownings-This-Summer-in-Swimming-Pools-and-Spas/)

 

According to Pearlman, “The end of summer does not mean an end to possible drowning incidents. Indoor pools and spas pose threats year round. Do everything you can to prevent the heartbreak of losing a loved one to a drowning accident.” She adds, “Be alert! Learn how to swim! Teach your children how to swim! You’ll be so happy that you did!”

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, Reveals A Deadly Mix on New York State Waterways.

August 14, 2015

 

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, talks about the dangers associated with boating while under the influence of alcohol and drugs and the prevalence of fatal accidents while intoxicated.

 

Utica, NY, August 11, 2015: Personal Injury attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, has posted a new blog on the law offices website entitled “Alcohol, Drugs and Boating, A Potentially Deadly Mixture.” Oil and water do not mix. Neither do alcohol and water as Ms. Brindisi Pearlman points out in her recent blog.

 

Pearlman writes, “New Yorkers love the water. They love to be on the water in our many beautiful lakes, rivers and seaside communities. They love to be on paddleboards and jet skis and in kayaks, canoes, sailboats and motorboats. They love to be in the water too whether swimming, diving, water skiing and more. Unfortunately, some of the fun water activities too often come with risk because of those irresponsible people drinking alcoholic beverages and using drugs while boating.”

 

Pearlman cites the most recent statistics from the New York State 2014 Recreational Boating Report, which states that, “Alcohol and drug use are a significant cause of fatal boating accidents in New York. Between 2005 and 2014 alcohol and drug use was found to be a primary contributing factor in 52 fatalities (24%) of all boating deaths. In 2014 alcohol or drugs are known to have been present in 11 of the 27 fatalities (41%). These substances can impair both judgment and reaction time.”

 

As Pearlman points out, “It is against the law to drive a boat anywhere in New York while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If you are found to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs while operating a boat you will be subject to heaving fines, possibly imprisonment as well as the suspension of operator privileges.”

 

Pearlman urges safety saying, “While on the water, please exercise precaution. Stay up to date on New York State Boating laws. Be aware of other boats, especially kayaks and canoes, and be alert for jet and water skiers and those being pulled in tubes. Obey the speed limits. Watch for shallow water. And do not drink while boating.”

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, Urges Drivers to Expect To See Motorcycles on the Roads.

August 3, 2015

 

Utica, NY, July 28, 2015: Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, has posted a new article on the law offices website entitled “Motorcyclists Are At Greater Risk on The Road.” While motorcycle enthusiasts enjoy a sense of freedom, they also put their lives at greater risk, as Ms. Pearlman points out.

 

Pearlman writes, “The number of motorcycle fatalities continues to increase annually. The Governor’s Highway Safety Association (www.ghsa.org) reports that in 2013, there were 4,668 motorcyclists killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes.” She continues adding, “This is not due to an increase in motorcycles on the road, but due to the greater distractions of drivers behind the wheel.”

 

Pearlman has posted an article from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, as she says, “in hopes that more people will become aware of the vulnerability of motorcycles sharing the roads with cars and trucks

 

The MSF article, entitled, “The MSF Encourages Drives to Expect To See Motorcycles”, begins with a quote from MSF President Tim Buche who writes, “When two cars collide, the result is often minor damage that’s repaired a few weeks later once insurance kicks in. However, when a car hits a motorcyclist, there is often direct vehicle-to-human contact. I can’t imagine the lasting guilt of doing harm to a person who has a life, and family who loves them, especially if that harm is the result of a momentary lapse of attention. This can all be avoided by making a conscious effort to drive fully engaged and undistracted.”

 

According to the article, “Over half of all fatal motorcycle crashes involve another vehicle. Most of the time, the car or truck driver, not the motorcyclist, is at fault. There are a lot more cars and trucks than motorcycles on the road, and some drivers don’t “recognize” a motorcycle – they ignore it (usually unintentionally).”

 

The use of cell phones, rather hands free or hand held are cited as the greatest distractions. Mental distraction, even with eyes on the road can also lead to disaster within seconds. As the article states, “The goal should be to completely free up the mind to focus on the task at hand – driving and watching for others, and doing so safely.” (http://www.msf-usa.org/news.aspx#/details/35)

 

Pearlman urges all drivers to “Please be safe this summer and always keep your attention on the road where it belongs. “ She cautions, “This can save the life of a motorcyclist, as well as yourself and your passengers!”

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, Asks Drivers To Be More Attentive to Motorcyclists.

July 27, 2015

 

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, makes a plea for motorcycle safety throughout New York State since the summer weather draws everyone out for enjoyable activities. She emphasizes the responsibilities of all drivers to be more attentive to motorcyclists.

 

 Utica, NY, July 14, 2015: Personal Injury attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, has posted a new blog on the law offices website entitled “Summer and Motorcycle Safety” in which she elaborates on the greatest distracting device in driving history.

 

Pearlman writes, “Understandably, summer weather draws everyone outside in record numbers. And, inevitably my mind turns to motorcycle safety.” She continues adding, “I can’t help it. I’m a personal injury attorney and I know what can happen when a car collides with a motorcycle.”

 

While she does emphasize that motorcyclists are responsible for their safety on the road, they are not alone. Pearlman explains, “If two cars collide, let’s just say in a minor fender-bender, very often the damage is to the automobiles alone. However, if an automobile hits a motorcyclist, the repercussions of two thousand pounds of steel and glass making contact with a human body are much greater.”

 

“The distractions while behind the wheel of a car are greater today than they’ve ever been,” says Pearlman. It is already an established fact as Pearlman states, “Cell phone usage is still the biggest distraction in driving history. Despite laws against texting while driving and talking on the phone unless you are hands-free and texting and driving, many people continue to engage in these activities. And, the greatest danger comes from the most inexperienced group of drivers, teens.”

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, Urges Passage of The School Bus Camera Safety Act.

June 24, 2015

 

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, reports that illegal passing of school buses is a growing concern nationally and that New York State transports 10% of our nations students making it critical to pass The School Bus Camera Safety Act.

 

Utica, NY, June 16, 2015: Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, has posted a new article on the law offices website entitled “Keep Our Children Safe by Passing The School Bus Camera Safety Act.”

 

Pearlman shares statistics from NYSED.gov, which states that “approximately 2.3 million pupils, or 10% of the nation’s pupils ride our 50,000 school buses each day.” Pearlman adds, “With the school year coming to a close, more school buses are on the roads than ever as they transport students to a variety of fun-filled educational and sporting events and school field trips.”

 

“With our state transporting 10% of our nation’s students on school buses,” says Pearlman, “it is critical that our state legislators be urged to pass a bill that is in the works in Albany. The School Bus Camera Safety Act would allow school districts to use cameras on school buses and issue tickets to drivers who violate the law.”

 

Pearlman quotes State Senator Catharine Young (R,C,I-Olean) who introduced the legislation as saying, “The number of school buses that are passed illegally each day is startling and something must be done to protect innocent children who are traveling to and from school.” Young continues stating, “Far too often these drivers are never caught for committing such a dangerous violation and students are continually put in harm’s way. This bill would bring these drivers to justice and prevent them from getting away with such egregious crimes.”

 

According to the School Bus Camera Safety Act, says Pearlman, “The cameras would turn on once the stop arm of the bus is extended when the bus comes to a stop to pick up or let off students. Images of the car and license plate would be captured and used to issue a ticket to the registered owner of the car.” “Currently,” adds Pearlman, “a ticket can only be issued by a police officer witnessing the violation.”

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, Reveals Illegal School Bus Passing Statistics.

June 17, 2015

 

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, says that New York State children are being put at risk on a daily basis by motorists who fail to stop when school bus lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended.

 

Utica, NY, June 9, 2015: Personal Injury attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, has posted a new blog on the law offices website entitled “A Look at School Bus Stop Arm Violations in One Single Day” in which she reports statistics from the National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services (NASDPTS).

 

According to Pearlman, “During a 2014 conference, the NASDPTS asked each state to choose one day during which school bus operators would “observe and report any instances of motorists illegally passing their school buses.” http://www.nasdpts.org/stoparm/2014/index.html

 

Pearlman continues, “On a single day in 29 states, school bus drivers recorded how many times motorists passed their school buses while the buses were stopped and displaying their flashing red lights and stop arms. At the end of the day according to the NASDPTS, “Over 97,000 school bus drivers reported that 75,966 vehicles passed their buses illegally on a single day.” The NASDPTS applied the results to a 180-day school year, which indicates on an annual basis “over 13 million violations by private motorists.”

 

She states, “I am encouraging New York State residents to write, email, text or call their state legislators to insist they support the School Bus Camera Safety Act.” This will allow school districts to use cameras on school buses to detect violators that illegally pass or overtake a school bus. Perlman further adds, “Our children are at risk getting on and off school buses. And very often they are at risk from their own parents and caretakers on their way to pick up their children. This activity is done so frequently that it is done on autopilot and today combined with time-crunched schedules and the distraction of cell phones and other devices, the danger is greater than ever.”

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, Urges Changing New York State’s Archaic Statute of Limitation Rules for Certain Negligence Causes of Actions.

June 12, 2015

 

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, urges people to contact their state legislatures to support changing New York State’s archaic statute of limitations for medical, dental or podiatric malpractice claims to include a discovery of injury rule, allowing the current 2 ½ year statute of limitations to run from the date an injured patient discovers, or should have discovered, that their injury was caused by malpractice.

 

Utica, NY, June 8, 2015: Personal Injury Attorney Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman has posted a new article on the law offices website entitled “Make your Voice Heard and Change NYS’s Archaic Statute of Limitation Rules for Certain Negligence Causes of Actions .”

 

Pearlman reports that, “Under current NYS law, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims is 2 ½ years from the date of the negligent act or failure to act or date of last treatment where there has been continuous treatment.” She further points out that, “This particular statute is the shortest negligence statute in New York State (other than against municipalities) and often creates unfair hardship for patients harmed as a result of medical malpractice since many times the injury is not discovered until well after the statute of limitations has expired.”

 

Pearlman says, “The proposed legislation (A285 and S911) recognizes that some injuries do not manifest themselves at the time of the negligent act; and, therefore, permits a victim of medical malpractice to discover his or her injury before their statutory period to begin suit runs.” Pearlman adds, “Under the proposed bills, the patient still has to show that their medical malpractice claim has merit. These bills would simply prevent the statute of limitations from being used to unfairly shield professionally negligent medical misconduct.”

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, Supports Sunshine Law to Keep Scaffolding Law Intact.

June 4, 2015

 

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, says the infrastructure of New York State is at stake when the health and wellbeing of construction workers are not of primary concern. She urges legislators to support the Sunshine Law.

 

Utica, NY, May 26, 2015: Personal Injury Attorney Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman has posted a new article on the law offices website entitled “Don’t Let Our Construction Workers Down. Let the Sunshine In.”

 

Pearlman wonders, “Why would anyone in their right mind want to do away with a law that protects our brave construction crews in New York State?” She adds, “Men and women risk their lives everyday working on scaffolding at construction jobs. These workers trust that those in charge of he job site will provide proper safety equipment to keep them secure and protected while working at elevated heights. When scaffolding accidents occur very often the injuries are critical and unfortunately, many times death is the end result.”

 

A steel-like tension exists between opposing factions. Pearlman elaborates, “The long-standing argument against the Scaffold Law is that it raises the cost of business insurance in New York State.” She adds, “However Assemblyman Francisco Moya (D-Queens) and Assemblyman Marcos Crespo (D-Bronx) are challenging those claims by forcing insurance companies to release claims data in proposed legislation known as “The Construction Insurance Transparency Act of 2015” or otherwise referred to as the Sunshine Bill.”

 

Pearlman turns to an article in the Legislative Gazette in which Assemblyman Moya has said, “What this debate really needs is some hard facts. If the Scaffold Law is actually driving up costs, then let’s take a look at how we can fix that while protecting our workers.” He goes on to say, “Unfortunately, the anti-scaffold law lobby doesn’t want to give us any information, they want to keep us in the dark about how insurance rates are set. And if there is anything to hide, then all we have to say is ‘show us the data.'”

 

According to Pearlman, “We should insist on transparency from the insurance companies regarding their practices related to construction accident payouts. In the Legislative Gazette article, Assemblyman Crespo said, “if not for this legislation, until we get it done, we don’t even know what playing field they’re playing on.”

 

Pearlman again quotes Crespo who said, “Forget about an unfair balance. That is an insult to the men and women who make this city run, the men and women who believe in this city, who have made an investment in this city, who raise their children here, they deserve better. Their safety should never be questioned.”

 

Pearlman agrees stating, “Worker safety should never be compromised and we should be working harder to strengthen worker safety laws not trying to repeal the ones that are already in existence in New York State. The health and wellbeing of New York workers must be the primary consideration and the bottom financial line should never be more important than human life.”

 

Pearlman encourages readers, “Please urge your legislators to support the

“Sunshine Law” and keep the “Scaffold Law” intact. The lives of construction workers are at stake. The very infrastructure of our State is at stake.”

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, Urges New Yorkers to Support The Child Protection Act.

May 18, 2015

 

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman says that New York children are at risk of being sexually abused by unknown sexual abusers who in many cases are being protected by institutions. She states that signing the Child Protection Act will extend statute of limitations for victims and expose abusers.

 

Utica, NY, May 12, 2015: Personal Injury attorney Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman has posted a new blog on the law offices website entitled “Support the Child Victims Act and Protect York’s Children By Exposeing Sexual Abusers,” in hopes of urging New York residents to action.

 

Pearlman does not mince words. She writes, “As residents of New York State, we are living with a silent epidemic that puts our children in danger of becoming victims of sexual abuse every single day.” Numbers have a way of making people pay attention and Pearlman uses them in writing, “The statistics are nothing short of startling. The FBI reports that 1 in 5 of ALL children are sexually abused before age 18. However, only 10% of abuse cases are ever reported as a result of intimidation by the abusers or serious post-traumatic stress experienced by the victims.”

 

Children are the most vulnerable members of society and, as Pearlman states, “Victims live in fear sometimes for the remainder of their lives while predators, many who are lifelong abusers with as many as 100 victims, remain unidentified.”

 

Bringing the topic into greater clarity Pearlman asks, “If you think about thousands of unknown sex abusers who prey upon children living all across New York State, in schools, churches, synagogues, youth groups and possibly the family next door, how does that make you feel?” She continues, “To make matters worse, we live among institutions headed by people who criminally cover up for sexual abusers. They even use intimidation techniques to delay victims from seeking legal recourse until the statute of limitations expired.”
