Improper Maintenance Malfunctions
Any type of complex machinery requires regular maintenance to ensure its safe operation, and this is especially true at construction sites where there are numerous types of heavy and dangerous machinery. A lack of a proper maintenance can lead to malfunctions such as the following:
- Crane collapse
- Power tool malfunction
- Electrical discharge
- Scaffolding collapse
Section 241-6 of the New York labor laws stipulates that contractors and property owners are required to provide safe tools and appliances for the use of their employees, and when employers fail to provide proper maintenance, they are likely in violation of this labor code.
If you have suffered an injury caused by a malfunctioning piece of equipment at a construction site, an experienced New York improper maintenance lawyer at Hach & Rose, LLP, may be able to demonstrate that your employer or property manager failed to provide a safe working environment, entitling you to compensation for your injuries.
