A construction site can be an extremely hazardous work place. Construction workers are challenged to be aware of their surroundings at all times. They need to watch out for falling objects, be aware of moving hazards all while getting the job done with excellence and precision.
In addition to the construction worker, the people responsible for the worker's safety have an obligation to ensure all safety measures are in place. Under New York labor Law 200, 240 and 241(6) you may have the right to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the landowner and General Contractor. You cannot sue your employer, but you can bring a Workers’ Compensation claim.
