Worn or Defective Rope or Cable Injury in New York Lawyer

Experienced Representation for Injured Construction Workers

“Two employees were using a wire rope to winch a wooden tool shed onto a flat bed trailer. The wire rope broke, snapped back and struck one of the employees in the top of the head, killing him. The employee was not wearing a hard hat.” — Accident case report from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)

Ropes and cables are used for countless tasks on constructions sites in New York and across the country. They include:

  • Hoist cables in cranes
  • Elevator or material lift cables
  • Cables or ropes used in fall restraint systems for workers
  • Electrical cords or cables

When a general contractor or construction company negligently uses worn or frayed rope or cable, workers may suffer serious injuries or fatalities. Likewise, tragic accidents may result when a product manufacturer produces defective rope or cable or a subcontractor is not provided with the safety gear he or she needs.

If your injuries were the result of third-party negligence or carelessness, you can pursue personal injury compensation in addition to your workers’ compensation claim. Block O’Toole & Murphy is here to help. With an outstanding record of results — including more than $1 billion* recovered for injured clients — our New York construction injury attorneys will use their extensive knowledge, experience and resources to aggressively pursue justice on your behalf.
