Construction Worker Dies in New York Construction Accident, Lawyer David Perecman Comments


New York construction accident lawyer comments on the construction accident in Port Kent, New York involving an auger. A construction worker died after being pinned down by the large piece of machinery.

“This accident reminds us just how dangerous construction sites are,” said New York construction accident lawyer David Perecman. “Danger posed by heavy machinery is one of the most serious hazards. Construction equipment is capable of causing a multitude of catastrophic injuries and deaths.”

It is reported that the construction worker, 46-year-old Michael Loyer was operating a Barbco auger while installing a large pipe under a railroad bed. But the machine became stuck in the pipe, police said, and Loyer was ejected and pinned to the ground by the boring machine.

Loyer died of multiple injuries sustained in the New York construction accident.

The death was ruled an accident. Police and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), are still investigating the New York construction accident.

According to OSHA, construction is one of the most dangerous jobs in the country as measured by the number of injuries and deaths. New York construction accident lawyers understand that construction equipment and machinery is often to blame for construction accidents on a worksite.

Perecman is a New York construction accident lawyer with more than thirty years of experience representing construction workers who were seriously injured in construction accidents in New York.

New York construction accident lawyers understand that construction accidents involving multiple contractors and/or employers present a particularly complex legal situation that should be resolved with the help of a highly experienced New York construction accident lawyer.
