LRANY Executive Director, Tom Stebbins, was a recent guest on “Today’s Verdict“, a TV show hosted by trial attorney David Lesch. Tom discussed common sense reforms to our legal system that would create jobs and lower costs to New Yorkers. During the interview, Tom addressed the issue of trespasser responsibility, which allows trespassers to sue property owners for injuries; as well as the antiquated ‘Scaffold Law‘ which holds employers absolutely liable for any elevation related injury, regardless of their proportion of fault.
We thank David Lesch and the team at “Today’s Verdict” for having Tom as a guest. The naturally opposing views of a trial attorney and a tort reform activist certainly made for an interesting interview, and hopefully brought the two sides closer to common ground.
