Representation You Can Trust After A Construction Accident
If you are employed on a construction site, you have a legal right to expect that the property owner and its contractors and agents are taking every possible precaution to provide safe working conditions. New York State Labor Law Section 240 holds these entities strictly liable for accidents that occur at worksites, without consideration of worker fault or negligence.
Workers on construction sites are exposed to hazards every day such as:
- Scaffold and ladder falls and falling objects
- Equipment malfunction
- Trips and falls
- Building code violations
- Unguarded openings
Thousands of workers are injured or killed every year in New York state.
Protection For Workers Injured By Scaffolding, Ladders And Falling Objects
Scaffolding is an important part of the construction industry, and New York’s scaffolding laws have been in place since the late 1800s. Solid scaffolding allows workers access to areas at great heights. Scaffold and ladder injuries occur when equipment fails or safety procedures aren’t in place. For injuries that could have been prevented with safety equipment or regular maintenance, contact the experienced personal injury attorneys at Anderson, Moschetti & Taffany, PLLC.
