After Another Death by Crane in New York, Construction Accident Lawyers Reexamine the Frequency of Such Accidents

Share Article

A crane operator dies in a "freak" accident after he is crushed by a piece of machinery. New York construction accident lawyer David Perecman hopes profits weren't put before safety.

Much to the dismay of New York construction accident lawyers, a crane operator died last week following a construction accident at the Throgs Neck Bridge. The cause of the incident has yet to be identified, leaving authorities to consider it a freak accident. The New York construction accident lawyers who will represent the family will be left to figure out how a cable simply snaps without a cause.

A FDNY official said the worker was guiding the boom of the crane when a cable snapped, causing him to be pinned against the machinery. The crane operator was pronounced dead at the scene of the crane accident in New York.

"In many cases, crane accidents occur due to lax construction safety measures in New York," construction accident lawyer David Perecman said. "There is tremendous responsibility to address this before anyone else gets hurt or killed on a construction site."

The Throgs Neck renovation has been plagued by trouble.

"In New York, construction accident lawyers work hard to enforce construction safety laws," Perecman explained. "In this case, experienced New York construction injury lawyers will help determine if there is a claim for personal injury because of the tragic incident."
