LAWYER ANDREW R. DUFFY AVAILABLE TO DISCUSS SITE SAFETY ISSUES FOLLOWING WORKER FALL FROM ROOF OF NFL DRAFT STAGE.
Mr. Duffy and Saltz, Mongeluzzi & Bendesky, PC represents victims of serious accidents
(Philadelphia, PA – April 22, 2017) Andrew R. Duffy, of Saltz, Mongeluzzi & Bendesky, P.C., is available to discuss with the media the legal, safety-related issues regarding today’s accident in which a worker was reported seriously injured after falling from the roof of the newly constructed NFL draft stage on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
Mr. Duffy is part of Robert J. Mongeluzzi’s team of attorneys at SMB that regularly represent victims of catastrophic work site accidents, including construction workers and event spectators. In the case of today’s incident, he said that investigators would be looking to answer numerous troubling safety-related questions.
“The first question that needs to be answered is whether the proper life -saving fall protection systems were in place. If not, somebody failed their sacred responsibility to protect this worker,” said Mr. Duffy. “Falls are the number one cause of injuries and deaths at construction sites. There is absolutely no excuse for not having adequate fall protection at every construction site.”
Mr. Duffy is currently representing the victims of last year’s railing collapse at the BB&T Pavilion (Camden, NJ) at the Snoop Dogg High Road Tour concert, and has represented numerous victims of construction falls.
