Earlier today, firefighters spent over two hours rescuing a construction worker from a 25-foot trench at a construction site in Queens. The rescue operation at 119-02 in Kew Gardens was lengthy because the worker was stuck in a very small area.
We at Morgan Levine Dolan prosecute cases just like this not only to get compensation for the injured worker and their family, but also to make sure this does not happen again. Under the New York Labor Law, the owner of the construction site and the general contractor are liable for this accident.
We litigate cases on behalf of innocent victim construction workers in all Courts in the New York City area. If you or a loved one has been injured in a trench collapse accident, contact Duane Morgan of Morgan Levine Dolan today.
