Fall Down Elevator Shaft Lawyers in New York

In August 2017, a young construction worker fell down an elevator shaft while working at a construction site in Manhattan.  The exact cause of the 22 year old male’s fall remains unknown.  However, his young age may indicate a lack of substantial elevator shaft work experience.  In addition, inadequate safety precautions may have played a role in the fatal accident.

The hard hat worker was taken by ambulance from the East 30th Street fall site to Bellevue Hospital.  While he arrived in serious condition, the patient died shortly after arrival.
