Such accidents can affect your ability to work and earn for your family.

Last week, Jun Cong Wu, a 33-year old Brooklyn-based construction worker met his death because of an accident at construction site at Gramercy Park, Manhattan. Now, another construction site accident has happened on January 24, 2018.

What Happened?

This accident took place at a construction site at 162nd Street and 46th Avenue in Flushing. According to sources, a large boom truck with a crane arm on its bed had been hired for lifting construction materials in Flushing.

But the truck tipped over in the construction zone at around 9:41 am in the morning. The accident resulted in damage to a nearby building as well as cars parked nearby. Fortunately, the incident neither injured nor killed anyone; but the authorities investigated the entire accident and had reason to believe that the general contractor was guilty of not safeguarding the construction site.

Furthermore, the Department of Buildings also levied five different types of fines on the general contractor. The boom truck involved in this construction site mishap was operating without a permit.

INDUSTRIAL CODE VIOLATIONS

New York Courts are littered with Labor Law 241(6) claims that hinge on whether the correct industrial codes have been plead and supported with admissible evidence.  For a person injured in a construction accident, industrial code violations are probably the last thing on their mind.  Having a personal injury attorney familiar with Labor Law cases is obviously extraordinarily important in these situations.  Knowing what questions to ask and what evidence to track down can make the difference between a successful Labor Law claim and a failing one.

Construction accidents are often the result of a contractor or subcontractor’s failure to comply with the industrial code.  The industrial code exists to provide a safe work environment for construction workers as well as for those people who may be on or near the work area for other reasons.  Industrial Code violations are usually due to construction companies rushing to complete a job by a deadline or cut costs to increase profitability.  In New York, construction jobs are so competitive.  It is important that contractors do not put profit over safety.

Often times, construction accidents result in horrific injuries.  It is only right that the injured party be fairly compensated for their injuries.

Construction Accident

The construction industry is a very dangerous industry for trade workers who often put their life and safety on the line when they go to work and risk construction accidents. In large cities such as New York City where new high rises are constructed on a weekly basis, developers, business ventures, owners, general contractors and sub contractors often place the bottom line ahead of worker safety. Most recently on September 1, 2016, we saw what can happen when owners and general contractors put money above safety. Two workers were severely injured when an “I” beam fell from the floor above where they were working and struck them. One workers leg was severely fractured and another worker fell through the floor onto the floor below suffering significant personal injuries.  Click here to see the story.

A construction accident is often times a catastrophic accident for the victim and their family.  The heavy machinery and dangerous conditions can be complicated by the failure of the contractor and subcontractors to follow safety protocol.  The laws in this area are complex and increases the importance of speaking to an attorney experienced in these matters.
