NEW YORK (PRWEB) October 13, 2021
The Hispanic Federation is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of Latin Americans. This organization accomplishes this feat by providing the community with several resources that are critical elements to a better life, including:
- Civic Engagement
The Hispanic Federation is also dedicated to helping those who are living in poverty keep their homes, fight hunger, and come together to help one another. Their mission is to create A Stronger New York City by increasing access to these resources for Latinos in the community.
Goidel & Siegel is dedicated to protecting workers and those who have been injured in construction sites and automotive accidents. Their team of personal injury lawyers has years of experience in fighting for Latino communities throughout New York City.
Goidel & Siegel also believes that legal resources should be available for Hispanic communities. Goidel & Siegel is proud to be a partner in creating change by offering a generous donation to the Hispanic Federation in support of their efforts.
Johnathan M. Goidel and Andrew B. Siegel co-founded this New York City personal injury firm with one mission: To help those who have been injured by no fault of their own. Their lawyers are not afraid to take cases the distance needed to get their clients fair compensation for their injuries.
The construction industry is notorious for having the highest rate of death and injuries from slips and falls. These accidents are catastrophic and often result from employer negligence regarding on-the-job training, education, and/or lack of fall prevention protocol. Slips, trips, and falls account for nearly one-third of all Hispanic work-related deaths in the construction industry.
Data also shows that Latinos are at a disproportionate risk of suffering from automobile crash-related injuries and deaths. Automobile crashes are the number one cause of fatalities in Hispanics under age 34.
Both construction site accidents and automobile crashes can leave victims with injuries that negatively affect their quality of life. Common injuries include:
- Broken Bones (hips, wrist, arm, ankles, back)
- Spinal Cord Damage
- Head Trauma
Victims may also suffer from anxiety and depression due to the financial burden caused by lost wages and medical bills. Oftentimes, these injuries leave victims with disabilities that result in the inability to work.
Employers are responsible for protecting their workforce by providing adequate training, equipment, and resources. Failing to do is an injustice to the community and these companies should be held responsible for their negligence.
Victims of these tragic accidents may be due compensation for their injuries, including:
- Lost Wages
- Medical Bills
- Pain and Suffering
