Crane Accidents Lawyer In New York City
Construction Sites Pose Risks to the General Public, Too
While the Manhattan crane collapse of 2007 was shocking, it was not the first such construction site accident to cause injury and death to construction workers and the general public living, working and just walking in the area. These serious injuries and deaths are the direct result of inadequate New York City construction site safety measures.
Worker safety and public safety must be first in mind whenever a construction company uses construction cranes or heavy construction equipment in Manhattan or elsewhere in the heavily populated New York City area. All too often, it's not.
If you are a construction worker, or the family member of someone who was seriously injured on or near a construction site, you have every right to seek compensation - and justice - with a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
The construction accident attorneys at KEOGH CRISPI, P.C., have more than 40 years of legal experience handling New York construction claims for crane collapses, defective or faulty equipment, scaffolding failures and cases of falling debris. We have a proven record of results .

Working at Elevations
Anytime work is being done at an elevation or underground, there is an increased risk of injury to workers and people walking by due to:
- Inadequate safety harnesses, barriers or netting to prevent deaths when construction workers fall from roofs, from girders or in elevator shafts, and to prevent injuries from falling objects and equipment
- Inadequate or missing safety harnesses to prevent construction worker injuries in falls from ladders or defective scaffolds
- Improperly secured construction materials, construction equipment and machinery (such as cranes) that can fall on workers or the public
- Improper or inadequate reinforcement of walls for construction workers operating underground, who risk being buried in cave-ins
Crane collapse injury and other gravity-related accidents are among the most serious. Without proper legal help, injured workers and grieving families will find it hard to get justice and to hold the company accountable.
