NYC Injury Lawyer Featured in High Profile Lawsuit

Hurt in a High Profile Accident?

Some accidents garner a lot of attention.  News media coverage can cause these cases to take on a high profile.

Our managing attorney, Michael Hurwitz Esq., is experienced and skilled at litigating high exposure legal claims.

As featured in The New York Post, our personal injury attorneys litigated a high profile crane collapse caused by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012.  The accident occurred at the Midtown skyscraper then under construction on W. 57th Street off 7th Avenue.  Rescue crews took a full week to secure the dangling crane while TV news cameras rolled.  During this week, neighbors were evacuated because of the risks posed by the damaged crane.

Michael Hurwitz has also handled high profile litigation arising from the redevelopment of lower Manhattan following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.

The worst factor causing news coverage is a high number of injuries or fatalities.  One example of this is the Metro-North train derailment in the Bronx in December 2013.

In addition, lawsuits involving professional athletes, celebrities and well known business people are frequently featured in legal headlines. 

When singer / songwriter Kesha sued her music producer in Manhattan Supreme Court, the case was covered nationwide.
