Faulty Stair Lawyers in NYC

Construction workers are at risk of injury at the workplace. Construction site accidents can cause serious injuries as well. Faulty stairs are a common cause of construction site accidents to workers. New York Labor Law holds developers, general contractors, and property owners liable for the safety of employees on a construction site. Stairways on construction sites are often unfinished, left open to the elements, and rarely maintain the same safety features as permanent stairs in a finished building. 

When a worker is hurt on a construction site stairway or hurt on the stairs of a building under construction, it is imperative that they contact a New York Construction Accident Attorney immediately  to investigate the cause of the injury, and to make a determination on whether or not the faulty stairs are a result of negligence, or failure to abide by proper safety guidelines under New York Law. Falls on construction sites are one of the leading causes of deaths for construction workers and faulty stairs are a significant risk factor.
