Welcome Economic Times of India Readers!

You know this blogging is a funny thing. You really can publish whatever you want and have it seen almost anywhere in the world.

So I’ve now been quoted in India. That’s right, India. I’ve traveled there, as you can see from the 20-year old picture at left. And had a great time in a wonderful country. But I can honestly tell you I never expected my little blog on personal injury law to pop up in one of their papers.

And the quote comes in an editorial, of all things, in the highly-regarded Economic Times of India. (I just made that highly-regarded thing up, I didn’t actually know squat about it until I looked on Wikipedia and found it to be the second largest financial paper in the world.) The editorial dealt with my legal analysis of the gripping story of First Pooch Barney taking a bite out of Reuters reporter Jon Decker. Somehow, though, they missed Barney’s own account of the incident.

And so as I close out my second year of blogging, I would like to welcome all those readers from India who have an interest in New York personal injury law. Both of you. And don’t forget to add me to your RSS feed.


The New York Personal Injury Law Blog is sponsored by its creator, Eric Turkewitz of The Turkewitz Law Firm. The blog might be considered a form of attorney advertising in accordance with New York rules going into effect February 1, 2007 (22 NYCRR 1200.1, et. seq.) As of July 14, 2008, Law.com became an advertiser, as you can see in the sidebar. Law.com does not control the editorial content of the blog in any way.

Throughout the blog as it develops, you may see examples of cases we have handled, or cases from others, that are used for illustrative purposes. Since all cases are different, and legal authority may change from year to year, it is important to remember that prior results in any particular case do not guarantee or predict similar outcomes with respect to any future matter, including yours, in which any lawyer or law firm may be retained.

Some of the commentary may be become outdated. Some might be a minority opinion, or simply wrong. No reader should consider this site (or any other) to be authoritative, and if a legal issue is presented, the reader should contact an attorney of his or her own choosing for advice.
