Injuries Resulting From Improper Safety Protection
The physical risks involved in construction are well-known to everyone in the industry. In New York City in particular, construction workers frequently work hundreds of feet in the air.
To reduce these risks, New York law requires property owners and general contractors to provide proper safety equipment to workers. This equipment can include safety belts, harnesses, lanyards and other equipment necessary to ensure safety. Further, scaffolds, ladders and other equipment must be in proper working order.
When someone is injured or killed as a result of a general contractor or owner’s failure, a lawyer can be crucial in holding these parties accountable.
