Protections for Electrical Workers
Electricians in New York City do a lot more than work on electricity. Electrical workers cut holes, run pipes and perform many other tasks, often in dangerous environments. Due to the dangerous nature of construction jobs, New York has special laws to protect electrical and other workers. These laws protect electricians who are injured as the result of:
- Falls and construction accidents
- Dropped objects
- Negligence of property owners or other subcontractors (such as debris left on a job site or an uncovered hole)
- Unsafe job sites (such as not providing a safety net or harness for an electrician working on an elevated platform)
Our lawyers can call on an array of construction experts to assist in establishing liability for violation of the New York State Industrial Code and applicable labor laws or OSHA rules. Damages may include lost and future earnings, past and future medical and rehabilitation expenses, and compensation for pain and suffering.
Electrocution Injuries and Electrical Burns
Negligent conditions such as temporary wiring, poorly maintained utility poles or faulty wiring can cause serious electrical burns or electrocution. In wrongful death cases, our lawyer will represent the family members who are left without a wage earner.
