I Have No Thumb but I Must Dial

Picture this: You're adventuring in a remote area of a national park, enjoying the scenery and fresh air, when an unsettling rattling sounds from directly behind you. You freeze for a moment. And then whip around just in time to see the fierce rattlesnake leap up at you. You jump back, but you're too late. The fangs sink into that small, exposed patch of skin between your sock and pants. You kick at it, and it slithers away, but the venom is working its way inside you. You start to feel dizzy as you pull out your phone and dial for help. Your consciousness fades in and out as you lay on the grass. You hear voices and people lift you. A deafening sound. You open your eyes long enough to see the wilderness fly by underneath you. You feel the jostling as you are moved from the helicopter onto a gurney. You finally regain full consciousness and realize you are in a hospital bed.

The Issues of Underinsurance

Homeowners across the United States and Puerto Rico have learned the hard way about the true nature of their insurance policies this last year. Three hurricanes - Harvey, Irma, and Maria - devastated homes in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico. Although these tragedies have raised awareness for some, many people across the nation remain uninsured.

Harvey and the United States Supreme Court

In most of takings law, legal precedent requires a full "taking" of private property. This means the government has either rendered a piece of private property null of all value to the owner, or the government has outright taken possession of the property. According to the 5th Amendment of the United States Constitution, a taking also requires the government to compensate the private property owner for the loss of value, or the loss of the property.

Reich & Binstock partners with Kids' Dreams Matter for Hurricane Harvey Victims

Hurricane Harvey's torrential rain, devastating winds and widespread flooding have cost at least 39 lives, driven over one million people to evacuate their homes in Texas and caused extensive destruction that will likely make it one of the costliest storms in U.S. history.

Why victims of recent flooding should get a lawyer

Elected officials throughout the northeastern region that was damaged by Super Storm Sandy marked the third anniversary of the storm's landfall Oct. 29. They reflected on the resiliency of the residents, many of whom lost or experienced severe damage to their homes only to find out that the end of the storm was not the end of their misery. Countless residents cannot comprehend why their insurance companies underpaid their storm-damage claim.

Clock Ticking on Hurricane Sandy Insurance Reviews

About 142,000 Hurricane Sandy victims have until Sept. 15 to file for a review by the Federal Emergency Management Agency of what they feel is low-balled compensation of their flood insurance claims related to the 2012 Atlantic storm. Meanwhile, with the clock ticking and many New Jersey policyholders uncertain as to how to proceed, members of the New Jersey congressional delegation sent a letter to FEMA Thursday requesting that the deadline be pushed back to Dec. 15.
