New York Construction Law


Attorney Daniel R. Santola writes in his book, Litigating Construction Accident Cases in New York, that our state’s building progress “has not been measured just by how high our skyscrapers have become but also by our state’s firm commitment to the protection of its workers.”

This commitment is reflected in New York State’s labor laws. These laws require construction site owners and contractors to ensure the safety of workers. If they fail to do so, these laws give workers the right to seek just compensation.

If you have been injured at a construction site or lost a family member in a construction accident in Albany, Syracuse or elsewhere in New York State, you should learn more about these laws by contacting an experienced construction law attorney from Powers & Santola, LLP. We can provide a timely, free and confidential consultation.
