When a Major Storm Passes, Hidden Dangers Lurk in its Wake

Personal Injury New York CityIn the post-storm weeks and months ahead, risks of personal injury remain as flood waters recede. Personal injury lawyers urge caution as residents clean up properties and motorists return to the roads.

New York, N.Y. (PRWEB) Nov. 1, 2012—The risk was clear when hurricane Sandy ravaged the Eastern U.S. But after the storm’s headlines fade less obvious threats remain especially for do-it-yourself homeowners and commuters returning to regular schedules.

Highways are crowded with drivers going back to work and regular activities who now share the road with trucks delivering supplies or hauling debris. An autumn storm like Sandy adds greater peril to treacherous conditions this time of year including wet leaves, darting deer and less daylight and visibility.

After a storm, drivers should take extra safety measures on roadways that are often congested, in disrepair, or covered in mud, water, ice or slush. The law firm of Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C.
reminds motorists to drive with heightened care and maintain greater following distances behind cars, trucks and heavy equipment. Drivers should watch out for work zones and reduced speed limits, keep headlights on and stay tuned to local traffic reports.

On the home front, residents want to repair damage as quickly as possible. However, Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C. knows first-hand that attempting to clean up storm-, wind-, or flood-damaged property poses many unseen hazards. According to the personal injury law firm, dangers include electrocution, carbon monoxide, falls, fire, sharp objects, contaminated materials, power tool accidents, mold, disease, and many other threats.

Emergency responders are trained to spot and avoid storm and flood cleanup mishaps but homeowners face serious risk of personal injury. Be sure to exercise extreme caution when returning to your home after evacuation or in the aftermath of a weather emergency.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
