Fewer Construction Jobs Lead to Fewer Construction Accidents in New York, Construction Accident Lawyer Says


A recently released study by the New York Building Congress on the decline of overall spending on construction in New York is reviewed and discussed by New York construction accident lawyer David Perecman.

As construction work has slowed - the number of construction jobs dropped more than 15% in 2010 compared to 2009 - so have the number of construction site deaths and injuries.

New York construction accident lawyer Perecman says the decline in construction site injuries and deaths can most likely be attributed to the recession. The Bureau of Labor Statistics supports this belief.

In addition to economic factors, the drop in construction site injuries can likely be attributed to stricter safety standards, increased safety programs, and greater industry member awareness, as well.

For over 30 years, Perecman and New York construction accident lawyers at the construction accident law firm, The Perecman Firm, have handled all kinds of construction accident cases in New York.
