Construction sites, by their very nature, are dangerous places to work. Construction workers are exposed to hazards on a daily basis. New York law recognizes this fact, and protects its workers. The worker, property owners, contractors, and  machinery and equipment suppliers all have a responsibility to keep the site as safe as possible. Risks and accidents, such as ladder falls, can be prevented by providing safe equipment and implementing strict and lawful safety measures. Examples are hiring qualified employees, posting safety signs and supervising compliance of safety laws. When any of these examples are not followed, when a “time is money” mentality exists…catastrophic injury or death may result. In New York City, White Plains or Hudson Valley, if you or a loved one has been injured, contact an experienced construction accident attorney.  Call the Law Offices of Francis X. Young for your free consultation.

Construction accidents and injuries are interesting because they often represent two types of legal actions:

  1. Negligence of the worker or co-worker occurring on the job are covered by workers compensation
  2. Accident or injury resulting from “others” (third parties) can be filed as a lawsuit in an effort to recover compensation
