Tashia Rasul, Partner at Lois Law Firm and Construction Defense Team Leader, discusses 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 will provide an overview of the relevant New York common laws and statutory Labor Laws that impose duties and obligations on builders and owners and govern the civil claims that plaintiffs file.
Some of the topics that Tashia discusses:
- Common and statutory law for owners and contractors.
- The Impact of New York’s Labor Law Sections 200, 240, & 241.
- Recent case law affecting how these statutes are interpreted.
