Construction Accidents FAQs
I was injured at work but I believe that my injuries were caused by someone other than my employer or a co-worker. What can I do?
An injured worker may bring a claim for third party negligence. If your injuries were the fault of someone other than your employer or fellow employee, then you may have a potential claim. Examples of such a claim would be injuries caused by the following:
- Unsafe scaffolding on commercial projects
- Defective equipment, including power tools, cranes, derricks, hoists, ladders, conveyors and vehicles
- Other contractors, subcontractors or their employees
- Persons or vehicles not involved in the construction project
- Negligence of a property owner
- Negligence of an architect
In many instances, New York law strictly imposes liability on commercial or municipal property owners when a worker falls during a construction project. Under some circumstances, residential property owners may be held responsible as well.
