Special protections for construction workers
Because of the dangerous nature of construction work, New York has special laws (New York State Industrial Code; Labor Law sections 240 and 241) to protect workers. These laws protect workers who are injured on construction sites as the result of:
- Falls from heights
- Injuries from falling objects (including falling cranes)
- Collapsing structures and scaffolds
- Unsafe work environments (such as not providing a harness or netting to a worker on an elevated platform or scaffold)
- Negligence of property owners (such as a property owner not covering a hole in the floor)
These labor laws apply to workers who are injured during construction, renovation, painting and demolition. Our lawyers understand construction safety laws and have secured six- and seven-figure verdicts and settlements for our clients.
One of our cases, Crespo vs. Triad, helped establish the law in New York about who can be named as a defendant in a construction accident personal injury lawsuit.
