Boston personal injury lawyer David W. White of Breakstone, White & Gluck

Attorney David W. White of Breakstone, White & Gluck in Boston.

Attorney David W. White was interviewed for WBUR’s news coverage of the Red Line subway accident that claimed a man’s life at Broadway Station in Boston over the weekend.  The man was reportedly dragged after his arm got caught in a subway door. The National Transportation Safety Board is now investigating.

Breakstone, White & Gluck represents clients who have been injured in MBTA subway crashes, pedestrian bus accidents and other incidents in the Boston area.  When asked, Attorney White said he believes the law allows the MBTA to offer sympathy to an injured party without making an admission, but he does not recall a time this has happened.

“As long as you’re not saying, for example, ‘I’m sorry that I was negligent and that someone suffered injury,’ you’re not making an admission,” he said. “But to simply say, ‘I’m sorry. I’m very sorry. Our condolences, our sympathies,’ there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.” Read and listen to the WBUR coverage.

Breakstone, White & Gluck's Project KidSafe campaign

Breakstone, White & Gluck donated bike helmets to support the International Institute of New England and Bikes Not Bombs as they work to collect bikes for Afghan refugees.

Breakstone, White & Gluck was pleased to donate 60 bicycle helmets to support the International Institute of New England (IINE) and community groups as they give Afghan refugees bikes for transportation.

IINE has been working with many companies, organizations and individuals to help Afghan refugees resettle in the Boston area. IINE and Bikes Not Bombs in Jamaica Plain are now seeking donations of used adult bicycles (in good or repairable condition). Bikes Not Bombs and other volunteers will conduct safety checks and make minor repairs before bikes are distributed to those in need.

Each bike will be given away with a helmet, lock, light, and bike safety literature. Bikes Not Bombs will donate free bike lights and provide discounted bike locks while Breakstone, White & Gluck has donated a supply of helmets. MassBike helped IINE prepare the bike literature in the Dari and Pashtu languages. Others, such as Rozzie Bikes and Temple Emmanuel of Newton, have also been involved or have expressed interest in collecting bikes or supporting the effort, IINE’s volunteer coordinator said. The organization is not sure how many bikes they will need or ultimately give away over the next few months.

According to Bikes Not Bombs and IINE, hundreds of refugees have arrived since the fall of Afghanistan and are in need of assistance to be mobile in their communities, to access various resources, and to commute to work — all vital first steps towards self-sufficiency.

“Breakstone, White & Gluck is happy to provide bike helmets to families who are making new lives in America after having recently escaped from Afghanistan,” said Attorney Ron Gluck of Breakstone, White & Gluck. “We hope that these families enjoy safe riding and have a peaceful transition to their new surroundings in the Boston area.”

“The refugees have a real need for bicycles,” said Alan Wright of Rozzie Bikes, who is repairing bikes along with Bikes Not Bombs. “Transportation is a big barrier. In the first few months, the refugees have to get to doctor’s appointments, go out and do groceries and attend English as a Second Language classes. Then they need to find work. And it can take six months to get a driver’s license.”

Bikes Not Bombs and IINE are collecting adult bikes which are in good or repairable condition. If you are interested in donating a bike, please fill out the IINE’s form: https://iine.wufoo.com/forms/z6cvn5q0go3y5q/.

Project KidSafe Highlight: the Lynn Police Department

Lynn Police Bicycle Safety Day

Bicycle Safety Day in Lynn, 2021.

In 2021, we watched the Lynn Police Department host a Bicycle Safety Day, using our helmets as the foundation for the fun event. Our attorneys couldn’t be more pleased with how this event came out – or how many children participated.

Breakstone, White & Gluck began a community partnership with Lynn Police in 2018. During the first few years, Breakstone, White & Gluck donated the bicycle helmets from our Project KidSafe campaign and officers gave the helmets away to children and families at community events, such as the Latino Festival, and at the YMCA.

Officers were reaching children. But Lynn Police wanted an opportunity to spend more time on bike safety. Knowing Breakstone, White & Gluck would donate helmets, Lynn Police began making plans and reaching out to other local businesses for support. Lynn Police went on and hosted the Bicycle Safety Day last July outside a local school. We are told the children really enjoyed the afternoon, which included an obstacle course!
