Who is liable for construction accident amputations?

When a worker suffers an amputation injury in a construction accident, there are a number of different parties who may be held liable for the damages resulting from the injury, depending on the circumstances. General or third-party contractors, construction site owners, equipment manufacturers, and others may all be held accountable, depending on the exact circumstances under which the accident occurred. For example, if the amputation occurred as a result of a falling object, according to New York labor law, section 240, the property owner or general contractor is likely to be held responsible.
