NEW JERSEY CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT LAWYERS DISCUSS NEW CRANE SAFETY REGULATIONS

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced new safety regulations after a crane collapse fatally injured a pedestrian in NYC on February 5, 2016. The crane was being lowered during high winds when it fell onto a man who was walking below on the street. The new regulations were devised in an effort to prevent similar construction accidents from occurring in the future. The new safety rules include:
