For decades, New York City’s borough of the Bronx was a blighted area, littered by unused lots and numerous buildings in disrepair. But a wide array of governmental initiatives have recently infused the Bronx with life, and hope. Among other projects, construction is currently underway on many affordable housing developments and old buildings are getting a much needed face-lift.
But with construction come construction accidents. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) regularly ranks construction as America’s most dangerous industry. Construction workers in the Bronx are routinely placed in harm’s way by negligent contractors, subcontractors, engineers, and architects.
When accidents happen, and New York City’s workers are hurt, many turn to the Bronx construction accident attorneys at Banville Law. For years, our experienced team of injury lawyers have helped New York’s injured construction workers recover with peace of mind.
Years of neglect have left the Bronx’s buildings structurally unsafe. In November of 2013, two men were seriously injured in a partial building collapse at 2601 Westchester Avenue. More recently, in March of 2014, two buildings collapsed in the nearby neighborhood of East Harlem. Investigators suspect that a gas explosion was to blame for two deaths and numerous injuries.
