Types of Construction Accidents in New York City

The New York Labor Law’s intent was to protect construction workers because construction sites are inherently dangerous with workers facing the dangers of falling or being injured day in and day out as part of their jobs. This is why the NY law holds the landlord and general contractor absolutely liable for elevation related accidents.
