Construction accident in Queens crushes worker

A six foot foundation at a construction site located in Elmhurst, Queens killed one worker and injured two others. The New York Times reports that the developer of the site, Yong Fa Cai, and his company, USA Heng Tai Inc., were accused of failing to provide protection for their workers. The contractor on the site was Rotondo Contracting.

The man who was killed at the construction site was an immigrant from Shanghai. The man's immigrant status does not preclude his family from bringing a wrongful death lawsuit.

If you or anyone you know has been injured in a construction office, please contact the Law Office of Frederic R. Abramson.
