F&A injury lawyers are dedicated to representing construction workers injured on the job in the Bronx. We have successfully litigated many Labor Law cases in Bronx Supreme Court. Recently, F&A settled a case on behalf of a construction worker involved in the construction of a new 911 call center in the Bronx who was severely injured when a large piece of iron framing being hoisted was negligently dropped striking him.
The Bronx is a rapidly growing hotbed of development and construction. There are many large projects currently under construction. See http://untappedcities.com/2014/03/17/5-urban-planning-projects-that-will-change-the-bronx/
Some of these projects include municipal buildings, renovation of parks, community centers, expansion of public transportation, and the development of shopping malls. Unfortunately a boom in development carries with it dangers to those individuals employed in the construction industry. General contractors often cut corners with respect to safety as they need to make the construction job quick and profitable. The New York State Labor Law protects construction workers from elevation related work hazards including falls from a ladder or scaffold.
