Manhattan Construction Accident Attorney
Arguably, one of the most dangerous jobs in New York City is that of a construction worker. Even though there are New York labor laws mandating that employers provide safe working conditions, accidents happen quite often. Unfortunately, these dangerous conditions can lead to serious injuries and even death.
Fighting for compensation is one of the most important things you will do after a construction site accident in New York. But actually being made whole by the at-fault parties is usually a mini-war, as insurance companies will fight every step of the way to avoid writing you a check. We fight this fight all the time.
Determining Liability in an NYC Construction Accident.
When you walk the streets of Manhattan you will be hard pressed to not find some kind of construction, whether it be an older building being rehabbed or new ground-up construction. Because of this, there are many laws in place that protect workers and passersby and require that construction companies and employers take certain necessary precautions.
For example, Section 200 of the New York Labor Law states that property owners and general contractors are required to provide reasonable and adequate protections to the lives, health and safety of all persons employed therein or lawfully frequenting such places. This requirement cannot be waived.
Additionally, Section 240 of the New York Labor Law mandates the manner in which scaffolding and other construction site equipment must be secured, erected and fastened on a construction site. This statute is many times called the “Scaffolding Law.”
