Construction Scaffolding Fails, Kills Three

Comments Off

According to the Tacoma News Tribune,

A 10-ton construction platform collapsed and crashed 13 stories onto a busy downtown street Monday, killing three people and crushing cars stopped in midday traffic.
Witnesses described hearing a rumble, then the crash of scaffolding that kicked up metal, dust and boards on Boylston Street, which runs along the south side of Boston Common.

Construction accidents are more common than the average person realizes. Usually, the victims are the people doing the construction work. Sometimes, the victims are simply people going about their business that day. These accidents are frightening and costly.

If you have been injured in a construction accident, as a worker or a bystander, you have legal rights. You should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to preserve them.
