Employer Negligence on a Work Site
One of the most important aspects of working on a construction site is the safety of all workers. Ensuring that the site is safe, all regulations are being met, and that others are not engaging in dangerous behaviors is the responsibility of the construction company. Unfortunately, many construction employers fail to make sure these sites are completely safe, causing workers to be harmed, often seriously.
Employers who act negligently and allow construction sites to be unsafe can cause devastating accidents and injuries to occur. In such a situation, injured construction workers may be facing serious, even permanent, injuries and financial losses. Understanding what your rights are in such a situation can be difficult however. Fortunately, our construction negligence lawyers of Hach & Rose, LLP, have much experience with situations such as this and can help you.

Types of Employer Negligence
Construction companies and employers have important responsibilities when it comes to ensuring the safety of their employees. Unfortunately, employer negligence is a problem on many construction sites, and often involves one of the following common incidents:
- Lack of safety equipment
- Inadequate training
- Safety code violations
All three of these instances of employer negligence threaten the safety and health of individual construction site workers, something with which these workers should not have to contend. Fortunately, New York labor laws allow workers to seek compensation from their employers should they be guilty of negligence on the worksite.
