Another Crane Accident Claims One Life

An accident involving a crane killed a construction worker on the West Side of Manhattan Thursday as he and others were working to lower the crane. He was working as a crane rigger and on a platform attached to the crane. The platform tilted, causing the worker to lose his balance and fall 400 feet to the pavement below.

This is the third fatal accident involving cranes in New York City this year, and another of many crane accidents that have occurred across the country. In this specific case, investigators are still trying to determine if the platform was anchored properly and why the worker's safety harness he wore was not attached to anything. The safety harness stretches from a worker's thighs and up around their shoulders, and is attached to supports along the building. Investigators have been able to determine that the platform was secured at two points instead of the four it needed. They are also looking into whether the safety railing at the back of the platform, and which the worker fell through, was removed.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction accident, please contact an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area.
