New York Construction Accident Lawyers
If you have been injured in a construction site accident, New York State Labor Law § 240(1) attaches strict liability to property owners and contractors for personal injuries and lost wages suffered due to your injuries. Known as the “scaffold law,” the statute protects workers when injured due to a fall or if the injury is caused by being struck by a falling object. Further, New York Labor Law § 241(6) requires that the general contractor and/or owner must comply with all the provisions of New York States Industrial Codes. These labor law provisions provide recovery and economic benefits for injuries suffered above and beyond any workers compensation benefits an injured worker may be entitled.
