The Labor Law of the State of New York, specifically its application to work related and construction accidents, poses great challenges to legal practitioners and individuals and corporate entities subject to its provisions. Labor Law §§ 200, 240 and 241(6), the most common statutes under which these claims are made, often result in liability to clients who were not negligent. The results are frequently unjust and onerous.
The field is constantly evolving, however, and attorneys must keep continually abreast of the ever changing case law. Lewis Johs’ Construction and Labor Law attorneys are at the forefront of attorneys defending these cases, always well-versed in the law’s intricacies. As a result, our lawyers have been repeatedly asked to lecture to and publish for clients and professional organizations. We approach each case with the best plan to avoid exposure for clients or to minimize their risks. Our attorneys have obtained many favorable summary judgment dismissals of these cases and have successfully defended clients at trial and at the appellate level.
