by | Mar 8, 2023 | Construction Accident, Personal Injury, Wrongful Death

There was an accident at a demolition project in Manhattan, New York on March 7, 2023.  According to reports, a wall collapsed at a construction project.  One construction worker was trapped under the debris, and three others injured during the incident.  One worker was pronounced dead.  The Department of Buildings previously issued several violations to RJB Contracting Carting Corp. after an inspection at the site.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by this deadly incident.

Tragically, there have been a number of recent deaths on construction projects.  There was a deadly fall accident at a construction project in Sarasota, Florida on February 15, 2023.  Two workers were injured in a scaffolding collapse in Chicago, Illinois on February 20, 2023.  Two workers were injured when they came into contact with overhead power lines in Washington, DC on February 20, 2023.  There was a deadly fall at a construction site in Edina, Minnesota on February 21, 2023.  There was a deadly crane accident in Celina, Texas on March 3, 2023.

Despite being a vital part of the economy, construction projects often pose severe hazards both to construction workers and to the general public if precautions are not taken.  Each construction project poses its own unique risks and hazards based on the work being done.  Risks that may present themselves during a project must be carefully evaluated before the job begins.
