Personal Injury Lawyers Report New York Man Killed in NJ Tugboat Tragedy

A Tugboat Worker Dies While Tightening Vessel Cables on the Hackensack River, Reports New York Personal Injury Attorneys From The Perecman Law Firm

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 4, 2010) - A worker on a tugboat was fatally crushed in the Hackensack River on Saturday. The worker was from New York and personal injury attorneys say it is hard to determine who is to blame at this time.

According to state police, Ricardo Young was crushed to death after getting tangled in cables. Apparently, he was trying to tighten the connections between the tugboat he was on and the vessel it was pulling along the river. The tugboat was traveling at approximately 4 knots at the time of the accident.

Personal injury lawyers in New York know that "Many factors can contribute to a personal injury accident. Investigators need to sift through all the evidence. Compensation for the family of the deceased, if any, depends on the findings. For example, the discovery of a lack of training for the worker can place more fault with his employer," said David Perecman, a New York personal injury attorney.

"If you've been injured in New York, a personal injury attorney from our firm can help you determine to what extent another party is to blame for your injury. It's part of our service to our clients," added Perecman on behalf of the personal injury lawyers at his New York law firm.
