New York Construction Lifting Injury Attorneys
Just as with any other job, construction companies are required to provide a safe working environment for their employees. Because of New York’s labor laws, particularly sections 200 and 241-6, property managers and general contractors are required to keep construction sites safe for workers by providing appropriate safety tools and equipment and addressing potentially dangerous situations. According to these laws, construction workers who are injured when they are asked to lift heavy or difficult to manage objects may be able to pursue legal action in a civil lawsuit against the party responsible for their injury.
