First, construction companies have an obligation to ensure that the construction scaffolding is safe. If proven safe, there is no reason why it can’t be artistic and elegant.
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
Chelsea-based non-profit ArtBridge is transforming construction scaffolding into contemporary art featuring the work of local emerging artists much to the appreciation of New York construction accident lawyers at The Perecman Firm, who have seen a few of the colorful installations.
“This artwork shows that construction scaffolding can actually add beauty to a neighborhood,” said New York construction accident lawyer David Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm.
Approximately a half dozen installations have been mounted in New York City, according to The Republic. Artists submitted their work to an expert panel before it was showcased.
“First, construction companies have an obligation to ensure that the construction scaffolding is safe. If proven safe, there is no reason why it can’t be artistic and elegant,” said construction accident lawyer Perecman, the former head New York construction accident lawyer for the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, and a lecturer on construction accident law.
New York construction accident lawyers at The Perecman Firm understand that funding for ArtBridge’s construction scaffold installations comes from private donors, developers and businesses.
“Regardless of how a New York scaffold accident occurs, close to all are preventable,” explained David Perecman, a construction accident lawyer in New York for over 30 years.
Pedestrians or construction workers who have been injured in a scaffold accident may be entitled to compensation. Contact The Perecman Firm at 212-977-7033.
