New York City law requires that scaffolding be erected around buildings under construction or undergoing structural renovation. Several different types of scaffolding may be used. When a scaffold railing or toe plate is misaligned, construction workers atop the scaffold face a significant risk of fall and bodily injury.
Ladder falls are frequently caused by an unstable ladder or hazardous condition on a ladder rung. Broken or slippery ladder rungs can result in a construction or maintenance worker tumbling to the ground, causing substantial bodily injury.
Due to the serious injuries that commonly result from ladder falls, New York City law imposes strict requirements upon employers to maintain ladders and related equipment in safe working condition.

Construction General Contractors are required to exercise due care in the selection and supervision of its sub-contractors. Therefore, if a construction worker or pedestrian is injured as a result of the negligence of a Sub-Contractor, the General Contractor may also be held financially liable in court.
In addition, when a Sub-Contractor’s negligence causes an injury, a review of the accident should be conducted by an experienced construction accident lawyer to determine whether any other Sub-Contractors may share responsibility.
Pedestrians walking past a construction site may face a variety of hazards. Some hazards may be clear, obvious, and even accompanied by cautionary signage or a protective gate. However, other hazards may be hidden or may suddenly appear without warning. As pedestrians are generally not expecting to encounter a hazard, and are not wearing protective gear, when an accident does occur the resulting injury can be substantial.
