Think It Is Safe To Walk Near A NYC Construction Site? Think Again

This time of year, it is difficult to go anywhere in the city without encountering construction sites. Of course, construction foremen and government regulators ensure that these zones are safe for residents, pedestrians and motorists, right?

Manhattan Tour Bus Crash: What Rights Do Injured Tourists Have?

More than 40 sightseers had to be evacuated from the emergency exit of a tour bus on Thursday. The bus crashed into scaffolding in Midtown Manhattan, blocking the vehicle's main exit. Broken glass and debris made the rescue especially difficult.

Unsafe Construction Sites Cause Construction Accidents

Many Construction Accidents can be prevented if property owners, contractors, subcontrators follow the law and provide protection for the men and women who work at these dangerous jobs.  The NYC Department of Buildings just completed a survey with the following statistics only 55% of the construction sites were in compliance with existing rules and regulations.  33% of the job sites were out of compliance and 12% of the sites were so far out of compliance that the work  site had to be closed down.  Construction workers who are injured on the job are losing income and their health unnecessarily.  People working at a height without protection or on inadequate scaffolding will suffer serious injuries including fractures and head injuries;  improperly secured equipment can cause permanent injuries to workers.
