Safety violations identified at NYC construction site where worker was impaled

A building in Manhattan's Flatiron district, which is in the process of being converted into condos, was recently the scene of a horrific accident in which a construction worker was critically injured. According to the Department of Buildings, the construction accident occurred when the worker "fell from a ladder as he was installing sheetrock overhead on a ceiling frame."

Why experience and training matter in the construction industry

The men and women who make a living working construction in New York City are well-aware of the dangers and hazards that come with the job. On any given day across the city, a construction worker may be required to descend into a deep trench to lay piping, work atop scaffolding to repair a building's crumbling facade or work in close vicinity to large cranes.

Trucker cited for trucking violations, food safety violations

There are many reasons that a police officer may decide to pull over a truck driver. Often times, it is because a trucker is driving recklessly or there appears to be something wrong with the truck itself. In either case, police may suspect that a trucker is in violation of any number of state or federal trucking regulations. By taking action to pull over a trucker before violations lead to a serious truck accident, police are keeping other New York motorists and residents safe.

Pilot in fatal helicopter crash had history of suspensions

Losing a loved one unexpectedly in an accident can be absolutely devastating. In the aftermath of these tragic losses, family members often want to know if there is anything that could have been done to prevent a fatal accident. If instances of negligence or reckless behavior are identified as factors in these accidents, it is possible for family members to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the appropriate party. It is true that no lawsuit or amount of money will be able to replace a loved one; however, holding the responsible party accountable for their actions can help family members get a sense of justice.
