In light of a recent decision by New York's Court of Appeals (New York's highest court) dismissing yet another personal injury lawsuit brought by a worker that was injured by safety hazards while working on the job (see our blog article, New York Appellate Court Dismisses Another Construction Site Accident Case), I reduced to writing a list of the three categories of construction site accident cases, and the evidence that is needed to successfully prove each one of these different types of claims under the heading What a Plaintiff Must Prove to Win a Construction Site Accident Case.

As always, please let me know what you think; I appreciate the feedback!
