As you look around NYC, one can see a multitude of construction and remodeling of office buildings, shopping centers, schools, places of worship, medical centers, parking decks, transit centers and infrastructure projects is steadily increasing. These construction projects often involve the use of cranes, and of course related safety equipment, which, if not utilized properly, can provide ample opportunities for Crane accidents, and even Crane accident related wrongful death.

The NY construction industry from Staten Island to St. Lawrence County employs heavy equipment operators, including crane operators. These crane operators and other workers who work with cranes, including signal persons, riggers, lift directors and crane inspectors, are required to acquire licenses, permits, and safety training, and to adhere to certain safety rules and regulations on the job site, which if not properly followed, or are otherwise disregarded in a negligent way, cause ordinarily preventable crane accidents, leading to construction site and nearby area related catastrophes, causing crane operators and related workers, construction workers, and members of the general public, serious physical injury and sometimes, even death.

Section 240, called the “scaffold law,” states that a contractor or property owner (excluding owners of single- or two-family private homes not in direct control of the work being performed) is responsible for providing proper and non-defective safety devices to protect workers who perform their jobs from an elevated position. Section 241-6 states that property owners and, in some cases, general contractors are responsible for providing a safe working environment, including safety equipment, and cannot delegate that responsibility.

We are here to help you, whether you were injured as a construction area fall worker or as a visitor to a construction area fall site.
