New York Equipment Malfunction Attorney
Construction workers are often dependent upon heavy machinery and a variety of tools and devices when it comes to completing their projects. In New York, due to building density and the nature of much of the construction taking place, this is especially true. When these tools and machines fail or are defective in any way, the workers who use them or are in close proximity may be at risk. Fortunately, New York labor laws, particularly sections 200 and 241-6, provide injured construction workers with the ability to pursue compensation from a property owner or contractor if they failed to adequately provide a safe work environment, which includes providing properly working equipment.
If you have been hurt due to improperly designed, poorly made, or inadequately maintained equipment on a construction site, our attorneys are prepared to help. We have considerable experience representing injured construction workers, and we know what it takes to make a strong case against the party or parties responsible for your injuries.

Common Equipment Malfunction Concerns
Injuries sustained due to an equipment malfunction can leave workers with physical injuries, emotional trauma, and substantial financial concerns, particularly when they require medical treatment and are forced to miss work for an extended period of time. The following are some of the most severe and common equipment malfunction concerns:
Both designers and manufacturers are required to provide properly functioning equipment so as to prevent serious injuries from occurring. Additionally, under New York labor law section 200, property owners / managers and general contractors are required to address hazardous conditions, such as poorly performing or old equipment, when they should reasonably be aware of the danger. When they fail in this regard, they may be held liable for any ensuing injuries.
