Who is responsible for a worker’s injuries in a house renovation accident?


What happens when you mix construction workers, a neat-freak house staff, a tall ladder, and a multibillionaire’s East Hampton home? You might get a New York personal injury lawsuit, especially if a shoeless worker fell from the ladder and was seriously injured. 

Reportedly, the project in the mansion involved installing automatic curtains in a private home gymnasium. The injured electrician alleges that house staff directed the workers-- verbally and through signage in English and Spanish--to remove their shoes and wear slippery blue booties on their feet so as not to dirty or damage the expensive wood floors.

Can I sue for psychological or emotion harm without physical injuries?


New York City personal injury lawsuits do not always arise from the victim receiving physical injuries as a result of the actions of somebody else.

How do you determine liability after a college party accident?

Restaurant May Be in Hot Water Over Scalding

Q: Can I sue if burned by hot water at a restaurant?

Things aren’t good in the neighborhood at least that’s according to one family who’s reportedly intent on starting a personal injury lawsuit against their local Applebee’s restaurant over a controversial incident.

The parents allege restaurant “employees did not call 911 for over 20 minutes”. But the restaurant is defending itself, claiming its staff was very responsive and “acted with urgency”. It further claims that video footage evidence and the fact that police and EMTs “were on-site within minutes” support its defense.
