During the current health crisis and in these times of uncertainty, we would like to wish you a meaningful Easter. While social distancing may construct physical barriers between us and our loved ones, we hope that you are able to find ways to overcome these obstacles and connect with friends and family in other ways.
We assure you that the Victim Compensation Fund is still open and resolving claims. And, the attorneys and staff at our firm continue working for you, albeit from our homes. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if there is anything at all that we can do for you and your family.
Barasch & McGarry is doing what we can to help responders during this health crisis. The FDNY reports that 911 calls for cardiac arrests have increased from an average of 60 per day to over 300 per day. All firefighters, especially those in the Engine Companies, as well as EMT’s and paramedics, deserve enormous appreciation for their selflessness during this time in particular. This week, our firm will be donating 15,000 N-95 safety masks to FDNY firefighters, EMT’s, and paramedics. We have also been buying meals for our amazing health care workers. And, as soon as more masks become available, we will donate masks to other responders.
We hope that you are able to find peace during these trying times.
The Barasch & McGarry Family
