The New York City Educational Construction Fund was named in a legal filing by the estate of a worker who was killed at the construction site of a school and apartment tower in May. The filing, called a notice of claim, is a preliminary step that must be taken before a claimant can sue the city, which was also named along with the city’s department of buildings.

Ramadan Kurtaj, 27, died from injuries caused from a crane collapse on the site. The notice claims that negligent enforcement of safety rules on the part of New York City and its buildings department helped create hazardous conditions on the site.
