Tragic Crane Accidents In New York City
Ten Golden Rules client David H. Perecman, a veteran NYC construction accident lawyer expressed sadness at this weekend’s New York City Crane Construction Accidents. “Once again the people in the City of New York are witness to the tragic deaths of innocent construction workers resulting from questionable construction practices.” said Mr. Perecman. “Saturday’s crane collapse is yet another construction site mishap in the seemingly endless string of accidents where construction workers die or are injured in height related accidents. Deaths from construction accidents have been on the rise in New York City and a main factor has been unsafe working conditions caused in part by laws that don’t protect the workers and the residents”
Mr. Perecman is the current Secretary of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association (NYSTLA) and a chair of its Construction Accident Law Committee. “Recent New York court decisions have made it more difficult to hold owners and contractors accountable for some crane type accidents. We must continue to protect our workers and laws for everyone’s safety,” explained Mr. Perecman.
