What constitutes negligence on the part of a contractor or property owner?
Section 200 of the New York labor laws offers strong protections for victims of negligence at construction sites by allowing contractors and property owners to be held liable for injuries whenever they were aware of or should have been aware of the hazardous condition which lead to the injury. There are exceptions to the rule, which exclude blatantly obvious hazards that could be avoided by any reasonable person.
