Construction Site Personal Injury Litigation, Second Edition
- Thomas F. Segalla, Esq. and the Goldberg Segalla Construction Practice Group
• Liability, Contracts and Insurance: An Overview
• The Plaintiff's Lawsuit: Causes of Action and Pleading Rules
• Scope of the Scaffold Statute Labor Law § 240
Written by leading trial attorneys, the 2018 Revision covers the many aspects of a claim brought under New York Labor Law §§ 200, 240(1) and 241(6). Since these statutory obligations are not based on fault, even the most experienced attorney must carefully scrutinize an injured worker's eligibility to proceed under one of these statutes, and this reference provides that practical guidance. Topics such as construction accident investigation and recovery, risk transfer, theories of recovery and defenses, and insurance coverage and indemnity unveiled are clearly explained.
