New York Employer Negligence Lawyers

On a construction site, a contractor’s first priority should be to complete the project while keeping everyone safe. According to New York labor statutes, particularly sections 200, 240, and 241-6, general contractors and those in control of construction sites are required to provide their workers with the appropriate safety equipment and a safe environment in which to work, which largely means addressing any potentially hazardous situations. When these individuals fail to meet these legal requirements, the consequences can be disastrous and they may be held accountable for any harm that workers suffer.

At Hach & Rose, LLP, our dedicated team of New York employer negligence lawyers is prepared to assist construction workers who have been injured as a result of their employer’s inadequate adherence to established safety standards or failure to implement sufficient safety procedures.
