If I sustained an injury working at an unsafe work site, who may be held liable?
A property owner or general contractor will most likely be held responsible. According to New York state labor laws, specifically section 241-6, a property owner or contractor could be held accountable for any damages resulting from an injury that was caused directly by unsafe conditions at a construction work site. There are other elements that determine liability and your eligibility for financial compensation, however. Because of this, it is critical that anyone who believes that their injury resulted from the conditions of an unsafe work site to consult with an experienced construction accident attorney as soon as possible, who may be critical in the pursuit of the funds you need to recover.
