James Lynch Representing Paterson Laundry Worker in Injury Trial

Posted on behalf of James Lynch on February 28, 2024  in Personal Injury News

attorney James Lynch seeking justice for injured paterson laundry workerRosalba Peralta, an employee at Star Laundry in Paterson, New Jersey, sustained a devastating workplace injury in September 2019. Unfortunately, Peralta’s hand got pulled into a heavy-duty commercial ironer during her shift. The ironer has a feature that can shut down the machine if touched, but the laundry owner had purposely disabled it. When Peralta’s hand got caught in the machine, it melted away her skin and flesh. Ultimately, Peralta’s hand was amputated.

In 2020, Peralta filed a lawsuit against American Laundry Corp. and the laundry owner, Yaakoub Hijazi, citing negligence for disabling the ironer’s finger guard. Recently, a judge denied a motion for summary judgment by the defense, which paved the way for a trial.

This case highlights the critical concerns about employer negligence and its impact on workplace safety today.
