Construction Injuries Accident Lawyer
Construction Accident Lawyer in Orange County NYThird-Party Negligence in Construction Injuries
When a fall or other injury occurs on a job site, construction workers often assume that they cannot collect damages beyond worker's comp. Under New York law, property owners, general contractors or other parties may be strictly liable for economic losses and a victim’s pain and suffering, if a safety violation caused a severe and lasting injury. Manufacturers may also be held accountable for defective tools or machinery.

- Falls from ladders

- Heavy equipment injuries (e.g., crane accidents)
Special Laws Protect Construction Workers
Most people cannot sue their employer for personal injury. But, a New York statute gives special protections to victims of construction accidents. Namely, the contractor, owner or another subcontractor on the site could be liable for:
- Improperly erecting or securing scaffolding, hoists and ladders
- Failing to provide ropes, harnesses, railings and other safety equipment
- Tampering with the equipment or disabling safety mechanisms
The defense will argue that the employee was the sole proximate cause of the construction accident by acting in an unsafe manner, such as refusing to wear a hard hat or safety harness.
