Criminal Penalties For Construction Accidents In New York By Michael Joseph on September 15, 2010

Construction in New York has always been a perilous industry with countless victims of serious personal injury and wrongful death. Even the Labor Laws which protect New York construction workers have not completely eliminated the dangerous practices and short cuts that cause injury and death. New York construction accident attorneys see many preventable accidents that should not happen.

The New York assembly has introduced a bill (Bill No.: A03094), which requires criminal prosecution where shoddy construction work results in serious physical injury or the wrongful death of a person. In addition to hopefully providing New Yorkers with better safety in construction practices and work, this new law may give New York construction accident lawyers the ability to sue for punitive damages where a construction worker suffers a serious personal injury in a construction accident. This law will probably also apply to property owners who are injured because of shoddy work.
