Building Collapse in Prospect Lefferts Gardens

Two Construction Workers Suffered Serious Injuries

On July 20, 2021, two workers were seriously injured when the walls, ceiling, and roof of a building collapsed. According to WABC Eyewitness News, the incident occurred while the two workers were on the second floor of a building that was being demolished on Lincoln Rd. The brick wall and roof pinned the two workers, who were thankfully freed and treated by emergency personnel.

With continued construction and development in and around Flatbush, areas like Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Ditmas Park, Windsor Terrace, Kensington, and other communities to the south of Prospect Park could experience dangerous incidents like this collapse. Speaking with a construction accident lawyer could be a key step to receiving legal damages for medical bills, lost wages, and lost earning potential.

Potential Causes of Construction Accidents Reasons Work-Related Injuries Happen

While some injuries and deaths were strictly accidents, other injuries on construction sites were caused by preventable factors, such as: 

  • Lack of safety standards
  • Lack of proper eyewear or hearing protection
  • Lack of proper fall protection equipment
  • Faulty equipment
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Improper training
  • Workers being struck by objects
  • Limbs getting caught in or between materials or crushed by construction materials
  • Violent acts on behalf of other workers

Why You Need a Construction Injury Lawyer

If you believe that negligence or wrongdoing contributed to your construction site accident, our New York construction accident attorneys will fight to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve in a construction accident lawsuit.

During your consultation at the Law Office of Michael H. Joseph, we can review the accident and the injuries you sustained. We can then help you decide on the best course of action, which could be filing a workers' compensation claim or pursuing a lawsuit.

If we take your construction injury lawsuit, we will work to hold the at-fault party accountable for the accident and any life-altering injuries sustained. Our goal is to secure a fair settlement or achieve a favorable verdict should your case go all the way to trial.

Wrongful Death Lawsuits


If you lost a loved one due to a crane accident, electrocution, fall, or other tragic incident at a work site, our attorneys can help file a wrongful death lawsuit. Damages will address the financial losses and other hardships associated with the death of a spouse or family member.
