Construction Eye Injury Attorneys
When a construction worker has the task of welding, burning, cutting, or grinding material, proper eye protection is essential to prevent eye injury. Under New York law and regulations, the owner and contractor may be liable for injuries sustained due to a lack of adequate eye protection. For example, the regulations specifically require that adequate eye protection, depending on the activity, be provided and worn by all persons who are welding, burning, cutting, grinding or pitting any material from which particles may fly, or in any other operation that may endanger the eyes. Failure to provide workers with adequate eye protection can result in serious injury and provide a basis for a claim if an injury occurs.
