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.
