New York Personal Injury and Insurance Defense Lawyers

Construction and Industrial Accidents

Nassau County, Long Island and Downstate New York Construction and Industrial Accident Law Firm

Insurance Disputes and Personal Injury Defense

The success of your business depends on your ability to defend fraudulent and questionable industrial and construction accident claims. Under New York’s Labor Law Sections 240 and 241, property owners, general contractors and their agents can face strict liability for construction site accidents involving scaffolds and ladders.

Since 1950, the attorneys at Montfort, Healy, McGuire & Salley LLP, have defended property owners, construction companies, contractors, and insurance companies in construction and industrial accident claims. For information about protecting your business from excessive and false lawsuits, contact our firm in Garden City, New York.

New York Labor Law Claims

Generally, employees injured on the job recover through workers’ compensation. New York’s Labor Laws can, however, provide workers injured on construction sites with a cause of action against property owners, general contractors and their agents. Our firm defends business against claims arising out of these laws:

  • Section 200: This codifies the common law duty of reasonable care on a construction site.
  • Section 240: A violation of this section imposes strict liability on property owners, general contractors and their agents for construction site injuries.
  • Section 241: Under this law, contractors and property owners have a non-delegable duty to adhere to all applicable New York State Industrial Codes.
