Three Workers Partially Buried at Williamsburg Construction Site

The experienced construction injury trial attorneys at Feldman, Kronfeld & Beatty work night and day to protect the safety of construction workers as they do their jobs. Because New York has one of the toughest construction safety laws in the country, it should be enough to keep people safe. However, it's not. Everyday people are still being harmed by the careless and negligence of building owners and general contractors. Last month, a building collapsed, killing a construction worker. Reports abound about how inconsistent safety standards and insufficient Department of Building inspectors are putting lives at risk.

This morning at around 9 AM, at 146 Wilson Street in Brooklyn, three workers were buried under dirt and rubble when a retaining wall collapsed at their excavation site. They had to be rescued from the yard. One of the workers was so injured he had to be taken to Bellevue Hospital, while the others were lucky enough to have only minor injuries. There are no construction permits filed for that site, and the FDNY had to put in a complaint on its own.

Since the Department of Buildings is not doing their job, we have to step in to protect construction workers and help them and their families if they are injured. If you, or a loved one, is injured on the job at a construction site, you can contact us at (212) 425-0230 or at for a free consultation.
