Posted on Mar 13, 2017 in Slip and Fall


MANHATTAN, NEW YORK (March 12, 2017) – A tragic accident at the World Trade Center brought heartbreak to a family from New Jersey.

A 29-year-old woman was tragically killed after she fell down an escalator at the Oculus Transit Hub.

The woman involved in the accident seems have been out with her twin sister. She reached for a hat that was dropped and fell according to law enforcement.

Authorities are saying that the woman that died was a substitute teacher from New Jersey.

Investigators will continue to look into the accident in order to determine liability.

The RMFW Law Firm extends its deepest sympathies to the family of the victim. No family should ever have to experience the pain of losing someone so young and full of life.

I referred Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff to a friend needing help with a birth injury & medical malpractice case. Having worked with founding partner Daniel Minc myself on a car accident case, I was sure they would be able to deliver results.
