Brooklyn Workers Injured in Falling Concrete Accident at Work

On Tuesday, January 31st, two New York workers were injured while part of a Fox Industries construction crew. The crew had been working for the MTA as part of the Culver Viaduct rehabilitation project in Caroll Gardens. They were working in Smith-9th Sts. Station when the accident took place, around 11:30 AM.

According to reports, the construction crew had been removing concrete from the station as part of the job. One slab of concrete fell during this work, and a 26-year-old worker sustained a head injury in the ordeal. An additional construction worker sustained an arm injury from the same concrete slab incident. 

Both workers who were injured in this on-the-job accident were transferred to Lutheran Medical Center. The worker who sustained the head injury was reported to be in critical condition at the time of this news report. The condition of the other worker who sustained an arm injury was unknown. Officials have not yet released the names of either worker. 

The work at the Smith-9th Sts. Station is part of a rehabilitation project planned to span over 4 years. The project is scheduled to be complete in early 2013.

They kept my best interests at heart. Updates on a regular basis of the status of the case and returning of calls was much more prompt after I started dealing with the same lawyers and support team.
