How are construction workers protected in New York?

Video Description

Construction workers in New York are given unique protections. The New York State Labor Law gives construction workers certain rights. It gives them the right to sue, in certain situations, the general contractor of a job site, the owner of a job site, and other entities that might be involved in the job site. The rights are also unique because it protects certain hazards from happening. If you fall from a height, the New York Labor Law applies. If an object falls on you, the Labor Law protects you in those situations. And if there's certain violations of rules and regulations, the Labor Law also gives you protections on those.

 

So, that's why it's important if you're involved in a construction accident to consult with an attorney to discuss rights, because you might not know what those rights are, and you want to make sure that they're protected.
