Eastchester DPW worker Nicholas Farella crushed by garbage truck, dies

Nicholas Farella, a town public works employee, died from injuries suffered in a tragic accident last week.  He was working on the back of a sanitation truck on Water Street when the vehicle backed up about 2:54 p.m., striking a utility pole and crushing him.


He died last Monday night during surgery at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx.

The attorneys at Morgan Levine Dolan represent many public works employees in accidents arising out of their employment.  This horrible and tragic accident must be properly investigated to determine which of the laws of the State of New York apply.  There may be several workers’ compensation death benefits which may apply as well.
