What Is an Employer’s Responsibility in Maintaining a Safe Environment at Work?
As a matter of law, general contractors and most owners are liable for maintaining a safe and secure construction site. All too often, however, general contractors give their workers faulty equipment or leave unsafe materials on the site. In many cases, contractors do not provide adequate safety gear, including fall protection from ladders and scaffolds.
Who is Liable For Construction Site Accidents?
If you were injured on a construction site, you deserve compensation for your damages. Depending on the accident, more than one party may have the liability.
This May Include:
- Construction employees
- Property owners
- Manufacturers -- if your case involves a defective piece of equipment
Does Workers’ Comp Apply in Construction Accident Cases?
Workers’ comp typically covers all injuries caused by construction accidents. In New York, employees who get workers’ compensation cannot sue their employer. A worker may, however, file a claim against a third party (someone other than their employer) if that party’s negligence caused an accident. For example, if a worker is injured by a defective piece of equipment, then the worker may use the manufacturer.

You Can Still Recover Financial Awards If You Are Undocumented
It is important to note that your status as an undocumented alien in the United States will not prevent you from filing a personal injury lawsuit and recovering financial awards for injuries sustained on a construction site.
