Bronx Construction Accident Lawyer at The Perecman Firm Calls for Greater Construction Site Safety Following Fatal Building Collapse


New York construction accident lawyer David Perecman calls for increased safety measures at construction sites following a fatal building collapse.

Last week construction worker Muhamed Kebbeh died when a two-story commercial building under construction in the Bronx collapsed. The roof crashed down after two construction workers cut into the cement floor with a jackhammer.

“A construction accident can occur in the blink of an eye, with life-threatening or life-changing consequences,” said David Perecman, a Bronx construction accident lawyer with over 30 years of experience handling construction accident matters. “Construction workers in New York and elsewhere face a greater risk of work-related injury or death than employees in any other industry.”

Two other construction workers escaped the Bronx construction accident without injury.

“The result of a series of errors or even a single negligent act can easily turn tragic on a construction worksite,” said David Perecman, the former head New York construction accident lawyer for the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, and a lecturer on construction accident law.
