PHILADELPHIA , May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading structural aerial-lift catastrophe attorneys and site-safety advocates from Saltz Mongeluzzi & Bendesky P.C. are available to discuss Monday's fatal incident at Gillian's Wonderland Pier, Ocean City, NJ , that resulted in the death of an equipment operator who reportedly fell from the work platform of his mobile aerial lift while servicing the pier's Ferris wheel.
Attorney Robert J. Mongeluzzi , a national authority on high-reach lift equipment, said on behalf of SMB, "We are deeply sorry for this loss of life that, tragically and ironically, occurred during OSHA's 'Fall Safety Stand Down Week', a solemn national safety program focused on promoting site safety and specifically preventing elevation fall-related workplace accidents. This fatality is yet another reminder that safety first is the highest priority at any work site, undergoing construction, demolition, or as in this instance, maintenance on a Ferris wheel."
SMB's David L. Kwass , who chairs a national lawyer's group focused on litigating a wide range of crane and high-reach equipment accidents on behalf of victims, added, "We know from numerous past cases that there must be full accountability and transparency to precisely determine what happened, why it happened – which includes a full mechanical analysis of the equipment - and how a recurrence can be prevented at that and other sites where similar mobile boom-lift equipment is commonly used. One fall-from-elevation fatality is one too many; New Jersey has had dozens in recent years and this is an alarming trend that must be reversed for the protection of workers and the public."
SMB is widely recognized for successfully representing victims of a wide range of catastrophic aerial-lift incidents and started an organization that has provided legal assistance to scores of aerial-lift victims. It is regarded having the most experienced construction accident lawyers in the country, handling more than 500 construction accident cases. SMB is currently among the lead plaintiffs' counsel in last year's Surfside high-rise condominium collapse near Miami that resulted in nearly 100 deaths, and previously represented families of loved ones killed in the Atlantic City Tropicana Parking Garage Collapse and the Philadelphia Salvation Army Building Collapse. www.smbb.com.

NEW YORK — On a sunny afternoon in the spring of 2017, a dozen tenants from a small Bronx apartment building met at a trendy Port Morris neighborhood bar with exposed brick walls, craft beer and funky cocktails. One of the tenants had slipped flyers under her neighbors’ doors a few days earlier, calling for the weekend meeting. Shoving two hightop tables together, and ordering sliders and wings, they huddled, trying to figure out how to deal with a new landlord who’d come in with big plans to ra

(Reuters) -A U.S. labor board official believes Amazon.com Inc violated federal law during mandatory staff meetings it held in New York City to discourage unionizing, a board spokesperson said on Friday, in what could lead to a new legal precedent. The Amazon Labor Union alleged the retailer forced workers at an Amazon warehouse on Staten Island to attend the so-called captive audience trainings and said staff were threatened with dismissals if they joined the ALU, according to an amended complaint and an audio recording the union shared with Reuters. The regional director of the Brooklyn-based office of the National Labor Relations Board has found merit to the allegations, in a potential first regarding captive-audience practices, board spokesperson Kayla Blado said.
