Posted in Construction Accidents on September 7, 2012
In August of this year, construction mechanic, Tibor Varganyi, was able to avoid a 15-year prison sentence for his part in the 2008 East 91st Street construction crane accident by testifying against his former employer, James Lomma.
On May 30th, 2008, a construction crane collapsed into the street, but not after demolishing a part of an apartment building and killing two people. Mr. Varganyi was accused of purchasing and installing inferior parts he’d ordered from China which inspectors believe lead to the collapse.
Construction sites are very dangerous places to work and also present potential dangers for people just walking by in the streets. Thankfully, construction site inspections have become a lot tougher in the hour years following this horrible accident, but they do not make construction sites perfectly safe.
