Syracuse construction accident lawsuits can be challenging. They typically involve multiple parties and multiple theories of liability. It is important to have quality legal representation if you have been hurt on a job site due to the negligence of a property owner, general contractor, or subcontractor.
Facts of the Case
In a recent case appealed from the Supreme Court of Niagra County, New York, the plaintiff was a man who fell through a hole in a subfloor while performing framing work on a residential construction project. At the time of his injury, the plaintiff was working for a separate contractor, who was not a party to the lawsuit.
The plaintiff filed suit against the defendants, the owner of the property and a contractor who worked on the project, asserting a claim based on common law negligence and alleged violation of New York Labor Law §§ 200, 240(1), 241(6). The plaintiff filed a motion for summary judgment as to the defendants’ liability on some of his claims. The defendants filed cross motions for summary judgment.
