Construction sites are some of the most dangerous workplaces in America and around the world. One would think when multi-million dollar projects are taken on by huge construction companies, proper safety measures would be taken to protect the workers, but unfortunately this is often not the case. According to the NY department of buildings, over 500 workers are injured every year with multiple fatalities recorded in each of NYC’s boroughs. The leading causes of injuries relate to worker falls, falls from scaffolding, mechanical equipment, unsafe worksites, and materials falling onto workers.
The silver lining in construction accidents is that New York Law makes some property owners and general contractors strictly liable when workers get hurt on the job. It is important to understand that an injured worker may have two separate cases, one with their workers compensation carrier, and another against the party responsible for the work conditions that caused the injury. This area of law is highly intricate with various pitfalls for the injured worker trying to obtain a recovery and get back on their feet.
