Crane Accident Lawyer in NYC
New York City has countless high rise buildings which are under construction or renovation and require the use of street level cranes and tower cranes to lift the heaviest of objects up to various levels of the construction project. While such lifts are inherently dangerous, obstructions, lack of communication and even bad weather, among other things, can make such lifts even more so, and can result in accidents due to loads not being properly secured or lifted, swinging into workers or falling on workers below. If you have been involved in a crane accident, construction attorneys at Pazer, Epstein, Jaffe & Fein, P.C. can help. We use our expertise and experience in helping clients recover the rightful compensation from developers, contractors, and other liable parties.
