Who Is Liable For Scaffolding Accidents In New York?
Because New York City is home to immense skyscrapers that require upkeep at great heights, many workers face extra risk of injury or fatality. For this reason, these employees can benefit from a unique type of workers’ compensation.
Throughout Long Island and the rest of New York, a special labor law, known as section 240, protects workers in the event of a scaffolding-related accident. Section 240 states that contractors and property owners are responsible for providing safe scaffolding on work sites. This means that they may likely be fully liable if a worker is seriously injured or killed in a scaffolding collapse.
You can unite with a dedicated attorney from our firm to hold your employer and the property owner accountable for your injuries. The law does not automatically guarantee that you will receive compensation, but our lawyers are ready to build the strongest case possible on your behalf.
