New York has unique laws protecting the rights of builders and contractors working construction sites. To summarize, in provisions of NY Labor Law Statute 241, the property owner may be held liable for compensating the injured worker for injuries related to accidents on the job. In addition, workers’ compensation benefits may be payable to the injured worker.
