Were You Hurt In A Fall On A Construction Site?
Working at height is one of the most dangerous aspects of construction work. So much so, that there are special laws in place to protect New York construction workers from the risk of ladder and scaffolding accidents.
Labor Law Section 240
Labor law Section 240 allows workers injured in a fall to hold the property owners responsible for their injuries. This law is designed to encourage property owners to take a vested interest in the safety of construction on their properties. It also gives workers another possible source of compensation they can pursue, which is extremely beneficial given how costly it can be to recover from the injuries serious falls can cause.
Falls from heights create a high number of brain and spinal cord injuries. These injuries change people’s lives and their ability to work and care for themselves. A person suffering such serious injuries may never work again. They may also require medical care for the rest of their lives.
We know how to fight for the maximum compensation to ensure that our clients’ needs are met as they work to rebuild their lives.
