What You Should Know About Construction Accidents
New York has two sets of laws meant to encourage construction worker safety. They are “the scaffolding law” and the New York building code. Both laws punish property owners for neglecting proper safety measures on their construction sites. Violations of either law that lead to injuries are highly complex matters.
Essentially, property owners who do not take proper steps are responsible if workers receive injuries such as:
- Toxic exposure
- Injuries from falling tools and objects
- Injuries from construction machinery
- Falls from scaffolding
Proving these matters can be difficult. Often, the victims of the accident are severely or mortally injured. We provide the attentive, experienced legal assistance that our clients need to move forward in their pursuit of just compensation.
