Edelman & Edelman Attorney Attends Premiere Of Netflix Miniseries: When They See Us

With the new Netflix Miniseries, When They See Us, beginning it's run, one of our own exceptional attorneys - Paul Callan - is scheduled to attend the premiere at the Apollo Theater in Harlem.

Ava DuVernay's Netflix mini-miniseries centers on the story of "The Central Park Five," also chronicled in the Ken Burns 2012 PBS Documentary of the same title, about the racially-charged wrongful conviction and imprisonment of the five young men originally charged with the brutal beating and rape of Trish Meli, the so-called "Central Park Jogger," on the night of April 19, 1989. 

Why is preeclampsia so dangerous?

When you became pregnant, you probably had an expectation that you would experience a lot of health changes. However, sometimes pregnancy can be physical overwhelming and cause complications.

One of the most common complications is preeclampsia, which affects at least five to eight percent of pregnancies. It typically begins after week 20 and can be especially dangerous for pregnant women and babies if left untreated.

New York joins OSHA lawsuit over annual electronic reporting

A recent requirement rollback has six states, including New York, suing the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for what they see as a senseless rule change. The lawsuit centers around a 2016 rule, which required businesses with 250 or more employees to electronically submit annual reports on all employee injuries and illnesses.

OSHA recently chose to eliminate that requirement due to concern over potential public disclosure of workers’ sensitive information. Employers still must complete the forms and make them available to OSHA inspectors, as this was the rule prior to 2016.

Does my baby have Erb’s palsy?

When most expectant parents imagine what it’s like to have a baby, they think of a cute, wriggly human learning how to move their little bodies. However, when a baby seems like they aren’t moving the way they should, it can be a cause of concern.

This is especially relevant for parents whose child had a difficult birth. If this is the case, a baby may have Erb’s palsy.

Who is safe on the subway?

A recent tragedy is highlighting the overdue need for accessibility improvements in New York's subway system.

On January 28, Malaysia Goodson attempted to carry her one-year-old daughter Rhylee inside a stroller down a flight of stairs in a Manhattan subway station. While walking down the stairs she fell and tumbled onto the platform. Rhylee survived but Goodson died from her injuries.

NYC construction injuries are at their highest in a decade

Construction workers deserve a safe workplace, just like any other employee expects at their job, but unfortunately this is not always the reality. In New York City, construction workers face a potentially more dangerous environment as each year passes.

Reported construction injuries are currently on the rise in the city. In 2018, injury rates were higher than any other year after the 2008 recession. As this decade-high occurs, construction fatalities have remained high over the past few years as well. 

Injured while renting an Airbnb? What are your options?

As many well-traveled individuals know, short-term vacation rentals like Airbnb are often a win-win situation for everyone involved — the renter gets an affordable place to stay and the owner/occupier gets to earn a little extra money.

Unfortunately, however, there can be a downside too, particularly when dangerous conditions are present at the rental property. So, who is responsible when a traveler using a short-term rental is seriously injured because of these unsafe or dangerous conditions? The owner? The booking company?

Are more women dying in childbirth?

Pregnancy is a unique time for women, but it is for men as well. Something monumental is happening in your life and to your partner’s body, and there’s little control you have over the situation. It is natural to feel a little like you’re sitting on the sidelines.

What makes matters worse is when something goes wrong during pregnancy, birth or recovery. You want to help your partner as much as you can, but everything is new and you’re unsure of the right solution. Your best option is to place your trust in the medical professionals who you expect to know what to do, but sometimes things can still go wrong.

Is the disregard of potential allergies cause for legal action?

Awareness of food allergies has increased in the past decade, as the problem impacts more people across a broad range of settings. Food allergies are an important consideration for schools, restaurants, airlines, sports venues, corporate kitchens and any other setting where food preparation and the public converge.

The severe consequences of not paying close enough attention to food allergies was realized when a 15-year-old girl with a sesame seed allergy ate a sandwich purchased from the chain Pret A Manager at Heathrow Airport in London and died hours later of cardiac arrest on a flight to Nice.
