Skilled Crane Accident Attorneys in the Bronx, NY
Cranes and forklifts are often used to lift materials on construction projects. However, where the machinery is not operated or maintained properly, materials may come loose and fall from great heights. As a result, serious injuries and/or death, and resultant economic losses, may occur. Most of these accidents result from one or more violations of the NYS Industrial Code and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations. Claims may be brought under New York State Labor Law section 240 and Labor Law section 241. Shapiro Law Offices, PLLC has great experience in handling these cases, and has obtained multi-million dollar awards as a result.
