Construction worker injured at 3 World Trade Center
On behalf of Carl Lustig of Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C. posted in Construction Accidents on Monday, November 12, 2018.
As we are reminded in the news on an almost daily basis, New York City is a dangerous place for construction workers. These are the men and women who are getting the job done on an endless stream of large projects across the city and especially in Manhattan.
A number of workers have fallen to their deaths on New York construction sites in recent years, while others have been hurt and killed by falling objects, vehicle mishaps, and equipment failures that all point to lax safety. But there are many other kinds of accidents, including wall collapses and demolition accidents.
Worker hurt at World Trade Center site
Recently, a worker suffered a leg injury while taking apart a wall at the new 3 World Trade Center and ended up being hospitalized, according to a Patch article. A statement from the project owner said the worker injured his leg while dismantling a wall on the building's interior.
New York City workers deserve better. In many instances, the unsafe conditions that cause injuries and deaths are entirely preventable.
