Broken or Malfunctioning Tool Accidents in New York

Construction is a major industry in New York, and thousands of professionals throughout the city rely on the use of safe equipment to complete projects. However, when employers skirt New York Labor Law § 240(1) by providing personnel with defective tools, faulty equipment, or ineffective safety gear, the potential for severe injury or even death is high. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 150,000 construction workers are injured annually on the job, and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) notes that over 5,000 died on the job in 2017.

Do You Have a Broken or Malfunctioning Tool Accident Case?

If you work in construction or a related field, your employer is required by law to ensure that any equipment provided to you is not defective or otherwise potentially dangerous inside the realm of proper usage. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or death as the result of broken or malfunctioning equipment, you may have a case. Circumstances include, but are not limited to:

  • Falls
  • Object strikes
  • Electrocution
  • Being caught in or between equipment
  • Faulty power tool injuries
  • Failure of employer to communicate hazard(s)
  • Failure of employer to provide proper safety equipment

I had a great experience with this law firm for my personal injury case. I was referred to them by another attorney who did not handle the type of case I had and from the beginning I felt I was in good hands by Edward Averbach, Esq., Edward Steinberg, Esq. and the paralegals that worked my case.
