BRONX: Woman Hit In The Head With Scaffolding After High Winds Caused Collapse

Scaffolding Accident Seriously Injures Woman Walking With Her Children

BRONX, NEW YORK (February 24, 2017) – A mother that was walking with her kids was seriously injured after a scaffolding collapsed and hit her in the head, according to ABC News.

The 39-year-old victim has yet to be identified. Neither of her two children sustained injuries following the collapse.

Paramedics rushed the woman the  St. Barnabas Hospital. Heavy winds seem to have contributed to the accident.

The Bedford Housing Development project which worked on the scaffolding had previously received a safety violation in August.

Our staff at the RMFW Law Firm were deeply saddened to hear about the tragic accident injuring a mother in the Bronx. We encourage the police to conduct a thorough investigation for the sake of all of those that have been involved.

There may be liability on the business that installed the scaffolding. This will be determined after a full investigation has been completed.
