If I was injured in a vehicle accident on a construction site, who is liable?
Liability for construction site accidents typically depends on who can be shown to be responsible for the accident. For instance, if the vehicle accident was caused by faulty brakes or other parts of the vehicle, the vehicle manufacturer is likely liable for any damages that occurred as a result. In contrast, if the accident was due to an unsafe work environment, the construction site owner or contractor is likely at fault, according to New York labor laws, section 241-6.
