These accidents prove just how dangerous construction work can be.
New York, New York (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
New York construction accident lawyers at The Perecman Firm are concerned after a steel beam hit an ironworker at the 4 World Trade Center construction site. This was the third accident at the same worksite in less than a month.
The construction accident was not expected to be fatal, reported the New York Post (7/13/2012).
In late June a worker at the 4 WTC site was impaled by a steel reinforcing bar just one day after a crane knocked a 53-foot, 24-ton steel beam into windows on the 46th floor of the building, according to The New York Times (6/27/2012).
“These accidents prove just how dangerous construction work can be,” said construction accident lawyer Perecman, chairman of the Labor Law committee for the New York State Trial Lawyers Association and lecturer on construction accident law. “While many jobs come with dangers and risks, the construction industry consistently ranks among the most hazardous occupations in the United States.”
David Perecman and construction accident lawyers at The Perecman Firm understand just how important it is for every construction worker and employer to take the necessary precautions to prevent construction workplace injuries and fatalities from occurring.
