INJURIES CAUSED BY VIOLATION OF SAFETY CODES
In the aftermath of construction accident, employers often direct injured workers to benefits from workers’ compensation. Those benefits are limited, however, and will not compensate you for everything you have lost in an accident. If the injury was caused by equipment that was unsafe, poorly maintained or defective, you may have additional options.
Under section 241(6) of the New York State Labor Law, contractors and others may be liable for injuries caused by unsafe equipment. If the equipment was defective or contained inadequate warnings, you may also have a case against the manufacturer, distributor, designer or retailer of the equipment.

Our team will investigate your case and determine if you have the right to seek additional compensation under New York Labor Laws or third-party liability claims.
