Wrongful Death Construction Accidents In New York City Are At The Highest Levels In The Years

After a 12-ton heating and air conditioning unit tumbled 30 stories earlier this month in Manhattan, attention has been given to the rising rate of construction accidents in New York City

The 231 accidents in 2014 represented a 24% increase in construction accidents. So far this year in 2015, 8 people have suffered wrongful death due to construction related accidents. This is as many as occurred during the entire year of 2014

Statistics show that construction work is the 2nd most dangerous occupation in America after mining

While many attribute the rising trend of construction accident personal injuries and wrongful deaths to the overall increase in construction projects, there is definitely a greater frequency of accidents when projects involve non-union workers

The safety training and the safety protections associated with union membership and union participation in projects are vital to construction workers in reducing the risk of personal injury and wrongful death within the industry

The trial attorneys at Keogh Crispi, P.C. devote a majority of our legal expertise to recovering money damages as financial compensation for the losses suffered by workers in the construction industry. Our proven record and documented successful results are available for viewing on our website
