Construction Accident Severs Workers Hand, New York Construction Accident Lawyer Comments


New York construction accident lawyer David Perecman, a former chair of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association (NYSTLA) Construction Accident committee, comments on the construction accident that severed the hand of a construction worker on Staten Island.

Steven Selva fell from a ladder and a power saw cut off his left hand at the wrist while he was doing outside repairs on a house. It was a construction site ladder fall of approximately 20 feet.

“Falls from ladders and cutting accidents are unfortunately two common types of construction accidents, although they’re generally preventable when safe procedures are abided by,” said New York construction accident lawyer David Perecman.

An experienced New York construction accident lawyer can ensure that an injured construction worker gets the maximum compensation he or she deserves in the event of a construction accident, including on-the-job construction accidents in New York.
