Construction Injuries

construction injuriesBuffalo construction workers know their profession is dangerous. That’s why there are special laws to protect people from suffering a personal injury hurt on a construction job.

The New York Labor Law protects workers injured by “gravity-related accidents.” This can apply to workers injured by a fall from a ladder, a scaffold, floor openings or a failed safety device.

The law also requires that reasonable safety precautions be followed to protect workers in areas where construction, excavation or demolition work is being performed.
