Defending Employers Podcast: Episode 127

Overview of New York Construction Litigation

In this episode, “Overview of New York Construction Claim Litigation,” Construction Practice Leader and Lois Law Firm Partner Tashia Rasul provides an overview of the patchwork of numerous sources of law which form the basis for construction accident claims in New York. Examining these topics from the perspective of the builder or owner of a construction project, Tashia provides an overview of the relevant New York common laws and statutory Labor Laws that impose duties and obligations on builders and owners, and that govern the civil claims that plaintiffs file.

Some of the topics Tashia discusses include:

  • Common and statutory law for owners and contractors.
  • Labor Law Sections 200, 240, & 241.
  • Recent case law affecting how these statutes are interpreted.
  • How the civil claim brought under the Labor Law impacts the defense of the accompanying workers’ compensation matter.

This audio is from a live presentation on February 3, 2020.
