The Risk Of Construction Accidents
Statistics show that the construction business is more prone to accidents than most other industries. Such mishaps usually result from inadequate safety measures taken by companies or their personnel. Some of the more common accidents involve the electrocution of workers or employees falling from scaffolding or being struck by falling equipment. The victims often suffer from broken bones, burns, back injuries and head trauma. Others may suffer from long-term health conditions. New York construction attorneys can help the victims of these and other accidents.
Section 200 of the New York State Labor Law requires businesses and contractors to take the steps necessary to guarantee worker safety. Section 240 specifically pertains to falls and falling equipment, and Section 241 outlines safety guidelines in specific areas of construction and construction practices that require compliance with codes and regulations. Companies can be deemed liable for monetary damages if violations of these regulations result in casualties. New York construction attorneys understand the laws and are prepared to take action in response to accidents.
