Each year, thousands of construction workers are seriously injured and unfortunately, sometimes killed, at New York construction sites.  Because of that, construction companies are required under New York State “Labor Laws” to inspect construction sites, along with safety engineers, in order to implement a wide variety of necessary safety measures. However, construction workers still face a greater risk of work-related injuries and fatalities than employees in any other industry in the United States.  In fact, New York labor laws were enacted to protect construction workers from these very such dangerous construction work site-related accidents. The attorneys at Leitner Varughese PLLC believe that most dangerous construction work-site accidents are avoidable and should not happen.  If such accidents and injuries do occur, those companies and individuals that failed to follow the New York Labor Laws to protect workers should be held accountable.
