Worker killed, 5 injured in construction accident

Many in the New City area work in the construction industry. The construction industry offers a wide variety of jobs with many offering good pay. These allow workers to provide for their family and have a comfortable life. But these jobs can also be dangerous if safety measures are not followed. A construction accident can seriously affect both a worker and their family.

A tragic construction accident recently occurred in the Bronx resulting in the death of one construction worker and five others injured. The construction site is where a new four-story building was being constructed that is to contain 8 residences. Part of the structure came crashing down and crushed one worker to death and seriously injured two more. Three others suffered less serious injuries. Firefighters who responded to the scene said it was a treacherous rescue operation because of fears that the building would continue to collapse. They had to shore up the structure and put struts in to support the load and make it safe for rescuers. Investigators are trying to determine what happened to cause the accident.

When a construction accident occurs, families are often thrown into limbo. There can be many unanswered questions including what happened, who is at fault, and how am I going to pay my bills? A legal professional who specializes in construction accidents can help a family during this tumultuous time. They can investigate what happened to cause the accident and who should be held accountable. They can also help a family recover compensation for medical expenses, funeral expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.

When a construction accident occurs, it is important to find out what happened and hold the negligent party responsible. A victim may never be able to work again placing their family in a position where they may face financial difficulty.
