All New York employees have the right to a safe working environment free from recognized hazards. Employers can be held liable for workplace safety violations when they fail to provide safe conditions. You may have a case against your employer if you suffered an injury at work.  

Common Safety Violations in NY Workplaces

Some of the most common workplace safety violations in New York include:

  • Failure to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) like helmets, gloves, or safety goggles
  • Lack of proper guarding on dangerous machines and equipment
  • Failure to provide adequate training on job hazards and safety procedures
  • Allowing damaged or defective equipment and tools 
  • Inadequate lighting or ventilation
  • Slip, trip, and fall hazards like cluttered aisles or spills not cleaned up promptly
  • Lack of emergency procedures or first aid supplies
  • Unsafe trenching or excavation work 
  • Failure to address reports of harassment, discrimination, or violence

Under New York labor laws, employers have a duty to identify risks in the workplace and implement safety precautions to protect workers. Failing to address known hazards is illegal.

Proving Negligence in NY Work Injury Cases

To win a civil case after suffering a workplace injury in New York, an employee must prove:

  • The employer owed them a duty of care 
  • The employer breached this duty through negligent action or inaction
  • The breach directly caused the injury 
  • Damages like medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering resulted

With an attorney's help, accident reports, safety records, and witness statements can establish what led to the injury and where the employer fell short. 

Pursuing Compensation in NY Courts

In addition to civil lawsuits, New York employees have other options to pursue compensation after a workplace injury, such as:

  • Filing for workers’ compensation benefits
  • Reporting safety violations to OSHA or NY Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (NYCOSH)
  • Blowing the whistle under New York labor laws 

An experienced NY work injury attorney can review the facts in your case and advise you on the best legal strategy to recover damages. With professional representation, you can hold your employer accountable.
