In New York, construction sites are often in tall buildings where workers face risk of falls or being struck by falling objects. Our state legislature recognizes the dangers that workers face when working at heights. As a result, the labor laws protecting New York workers are among the strongest in the world.

The following are examples of dangerous conditions that can lead to worker injuries:

  • Defective scaffolding or ladders
  • Lack of harnesses, safety belts or other fall protection
  • Lack of safety nets to catch objects dropped from above
  • Openings in floors or roofs
  • Rotting wood, missing railings or other building defects
  • Unsafe wiring

Owners of construction sites have an obligation to protect workers from hazardous conditions. If the property owner knew about the danger that caused your injury or should have known about it, you may have the right to sue.
