Equipment Operator Injuries in NY Construction Accidents


Regardless of the type of equipment you are using on a construction site, whether a dump truck, backhoe, bucket truck or any other type of motorized equipment, New York has specific regulations as to how these activities are to be performed. For example, if a truck driver is backing up a truck on a construction site, there must be a spotter to assist the driver. If a spotter is not used and an injury occurs to a worker on the site, the worker can recover under the New York Safe Place to Work Laws.

At Powers & Santola, LLP., we are seen as a pre-eminent law firm in the field of personal injury. We have spent decades representing injured workers and learning the unique aspects of New York’s safety laws, including Labor Law section 240 and Labor Law section 241. If you were injured on a construction site, reach out to an experienced and knowledgeable NYC equipment operator injury lawyer at our firm.
