New York construction accident lawyer David Perecman of The Perecman Firm discusses workers’ comp and potential lawsuits following the Roosevelt Island Tram rescue. A worker was injured and rescued after getting his foot stuck in the tram’s machinery.
New York, New York (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
The worker who was rescued from the top of a Roosevelt Island tram was described as a “tough guy who would recover,” reported CBS News. No matter how tough a worker is he will need to recover from his injuries, said New York construction accident lawyer David Perecman. Workers’ compensation can help with medical costs, rehabilitation and partial salary during that recovery time.
According to CBS News, the tram was stopped for routine maintenance at the time of the accident. The ironworker got his foot stuck between a cable and a wheel and broke some bones.
“Construction is one of the most dangerous jobs in New York and injuries can be serious. Laws help protect injured employees financially,” said Perecman. “However, workers’ compensation may not cover all the financial needs of an injured worker.”
“A lawyer can fully investigate the cause of the accident and responsible third parties may pay for their negligence,” Perecman said.
