Manslaughter charges in construction workers' accidents

A construction company owner has been indicted on charges of manslaughter in the death of one worker. A wall collapse at the site of an excavation not only killed one worker but injured two others who were on the job. According to the District Attorney of Brooklyn, New York, construction workers' accidents such as this are entirely too common as of late.

D.A. Eric Gonzalez goes on to explain that these accidents are occurring because the builders and construction company owners are trying to maximize their profits. They often hire untrained workers and ignore safety protocols in order to cut corners on expenses. In this case, the owner went forward with an excavation despite the fact that it had been prohibited by the New York City Department of Buildings.

Two construction companies are involved in the case. Both Park Avenue Builders and RSBY NY Builders are owned by the same man, who is facing multiple charges, including manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, reckless endangerment and many other crimes. There is also a co-conspirator in the case who is facing two counts of reckless endangerment. This man is believed to have signed off on the false work permits and insurance certificates in exchange for $10,000.

When people are injured or killed in such construction workers' accidents, the family and loved ones may be eligible for compensation. Those who are injured face medical bills and time lost from work. The families of the deceased face the loss of income, medical bills, funeral costs and many other financial hardships. An experienced personal injury attorney can help guide these families in where to turn in order to seek justice for their losses.
