Firefighter Files Construction Accident Suit

Firefighter Files Construction Accident Suit

A firefighter who was recently injured in a construction accident filed a suit against the state owner of the building and its contractors.

The accident reportedly happened five days after a fatal fire happened at ground zero.

Lawsuit Details

Neil Nally was one of two firefighters that was injured when a pallet jack supposedly fell 20 stories and crashed into a construction shed.

Nally filed the suit against the Lower Manhattan Development Corp., along with Bovis Lend Lease and John Galt Corp.

Contractor Fired After Incident

According to reports, Galt was fired after the incident, which occurred when contractors were cleaning debris from the fire that killed two firefighters.

Officials claim that a worker for Galt lost control of the jack, which caused it to fall of the elevator and crash through the shed where Nally and William Corbetis were patrolling the building.

Plaintiff Suffers Injuries

Nally claims he suffered permanent injuries and now remains off the job due to the “negligence, carelessness and recklessness” of the owner’s of the building.

Spokesmen for the defendants have declined to comment on the suit.
