Construction workers have one of the most dangerous jobs possible. Although there are numerous laws and regulations that help protect construction workers accidents still occur. A serious accident recently occurred in Brooklyn due to a reckless driver.
Two construction workers were injured recently at a Clinton Hill job site. According to witnesses, a BMW driver was speeding down Clinton Avenue between Greene and Gates Avenue when he crashed into a cement mixer at a construction site. The impact of the crash caused cement barriers to hit two construction workers. The two workers were taken to Methodist Hospital for their injuries. Since 2019 there have been 118 crashes on Clinton between Park and Atlantic Ave. These accidents resulted in 7 cyclists injured, 6 pedestrians and 38 motorists. There was also an accident just a few days prior to the construction site accident where a baby was killed while being pushed in her stroller near the same intersection.
Personal injury attorney
If a person has been injured in an accident due to no fault of their own, they may want to speak with an attorney who specializes in personal injury. An attorney can help their client understand what happened to cause the accident and who is at fault. They understand that their client may now be facing unexpected expenses due to medical care and not being able to work. They will work diligently and strive to recover evidence and target maximum compensation by presenting their client’s case in a clear and concise fashion. They will make sure their client’s future is protected and the negligent person who caused the accident is held accountable.
