INDUSTRIAL CODE VIOLATIONS
New York Courts are littered with Labor Law 241(6) claims that hinge on whether the correct industrial codes have been plead and supported with admissible evidence.
For a person injured in a construction accident, industrial code violations are probably the last thing on their mind. Having a personal injury attorney familiar with Labor Law cases is obviously extraordinarily important in these situations. Knowing what questions to ask and what evidence to track down can make the difference between a successful Labor Law claim and a failing one.
Construction accidents are often the result of a contractor or subcontractor’s failure to comply with the industrial code. The industrial code exists to provide a safe work environment for construction workers as well as for those people who may be on or near the work area for other reasons.
Industrial Code violations are usually due to construction companies rushing to complete a job by a deadline or cut costs to increase profitability. In New York, construction jobs are so competitive. It is important that contractors do not put profit over safety.
Often times, construction accidents result in horrific injuries. It is only right that the injured party be fairly compensated for their injuries.
