There is always an uptick in fire accident injuries in New York during the coldest days of the year.  Last night a fire that erupted in an apartment building under renovation  located at 283 Monroe in Bed-Stuy and spread to adjacent buildings is the last of multiple fire accidents that occurred last week in New York. One firefighter was injured after the floor collapsed under him.

In Queens, 6 people were injured in a fire that erupted Monday early morning on 108th Street in Corona.

A NY construction worker who fell 45 to 50 feet from a roof survived after he fell in a dumpster full of debris. The 37-year-old man was working on a construction site located at 709 West Court in Ithaca, NY. The accident occurred just after 5:00 PM. The worker who was wearing a fall protection gear had just unclipped himself after finishing his work and was about to go home when he fell from the roof. He landed in a dumpster full of debris and survived.  It is not exactly clear how exactly the accident occurred and what were the extent of the injuries he suffered.

The firefighters, the police and an emergency staff in an ambulance showed up to the scene of the accident shortly after. EMS workers were able to get in the dumpster, secure the worker on a back board with a cervical collar and splint his injured arm before taking him out of it. Because of the inclement weather, it was impossible to transport the injured construction worker by helicopter to a hospital. He was transported by ambulance to a trauma center in Pennsylvania.

So far neither the name or an update on his condition have been provided. The accident is under investigation. The weather conditions might have played a role in the fall.

LEFT TURN PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT

Our firm is thrilled to have achieved a $325,000 settlement for our client who was struck by a car as she crossed the street in Westchester, New York. On the day of the incident, our client had just returned home from caring for her elderly mother and decided to take a walk around the neighborhood. As our client was crossing Mamaroneck Road (at Park Road), an intersection with no crosswalk, the defendant driver carelessly made a left-hand turn, struck our client, and knocked her to the ground.Shortly after the incident, an ambulance was called to the scene and took our client to the hospital. After our client underwent radiological imaging, she was diagnosed with a tibial plateau fracture of her left knee, but did not require surgery.
