Keeping Construction Sites Safer


The kids go back to school in September, but the construction never stops. And while many job sites are run safely, accidents will happen. In the unfortunate cases where construction managers or general contractors cut corners, it can be even worse.

Fortunately, New York provides construction workers certain rights that can help protect them—regardless of your immigration status. If you are injured, and the site manager, owner or contractor has not fulfilled their responsibilities under the following rules, you may well be entitled to collect damages:

• Owners and contractors must take reasonable care to protect workers and provide safe workplaces that are fully under their control.

• Owners, contractors and others may be held responsible for injuries from high falls, or from falling objects, under what’s know as the scaffold law.

• Certain safety-related actions and equipment are required at all job sites.

Of course, the rules and legal precedents surrounding construction site accidents can be confusing. That’s why, if you have been injured in a construction site accident, you need expert help.
