Three Injured in Times Square Construction Fence Collapse

Reports show that the plywood wall was covering the entrance of Wasabi Sushi restaurant, which is currently under construction/ The Texas –based company, Einstein Construction, was refurbishing the restaurant and had set up the wall as a precaution.
Winds in the area pushed the wall on top of two women and one man. The victims all suffered non-life-threatening injuries, but were rushed to the hospital for treatment for still-painful injuries. The Einstein Construction company has been ordered to stop work at the restaurant while the New York City Department of Buildings’ investigates the incident.
Attorneys argue that the construction company should have made sure that all structures at the construction site were safe and secure. The plywood wall was set up in a very crowded area, and some claim that the results could have been horrific. The injured victims may be able to seek compensation after the accident.
