New York Safety Code Violations Lawyers
Building contractors and property owners are obligated to follow a variety of safety codes that are in place to ensure the protection and well-being of the construction workers who are on-site. These are hard rules, and not simple guidelines, and failure to adhere to them all-too-frequently leads to serious accidents and injuries. When this happens as a result of a contractor or property owner failing to adhere to the safety codes, New York labor law allows for the responsible party to be held liable for the injuries and any related costs.

Any time a violation of a safety code occurs, workers are put at significant risk of accident and injury that can be directly attributed to the contractor responsible for the work site. The following are a few common examples of violations which occur on construction sites:
- Improperly shielded or exposed electrical wiring
- Failure to obtain building permits
- Violations of health and sanitation codes
- Insufficient fire prevention measures
- Lack of licensed supervision
- Absence of guardrails and handrails
- Improper asbestos removal procedures
Section 200 of the New York code clearly states that contractors and property owners are obligated to maintain a safe work site, and safety code violations are obvious shortcomings in this responsibility.
If you have suffered an injury at a construction site due to a negligent contractor or property owner violating a safety code, you may be able to recover significant compensation for your medical expenses and other losses.
