For the month of March, I am going to use my Link of the Day feature to highlight legal blogs that I think are interesting and useful. Some may not be directly related to personal injury or Social Security disability law, but all of us who represent injured and disabled people occasionally need help in other areas. Today’s entry in March of the Blogs:
New York City attorney Eric Turkewitz writes the New York Personal Injury Blog — “An attorney’s blog on New York personal injury law, medical malpractice, the civil justice system and cases of interest.” The blog’s first post in 2006 states the purpose:
This blog is inaugurated and dedicated with a simple message — that while the law is often complex, it need not be. It is my intention to discuss cases of interest for New York personal injury lawsuits, pending legislation and other matters of public interest in the same style that I try cases in the courtroom. Simply. If I can take the inner workings of the human body and make them understandable to lay jurors while trying a medical malpractice case, I ought to be able to make the law understandable here. At least that’s the theory.
Attorney Turkewitz describes his law firm this way:
THE TURKEWITZ LAW FIRM is a New York personal injury law firm. We are dedicated to helping personal injury victims get compensation for serious injuries and loss. Eric Turkewitz, the firm’s founder and principal trial attorney, has argued for more than 20 years in front of judges and juries in New York to help people victimized by negligent or reckless conduct.
