Know Your Legal Options Under NYC Labor Law 240
In addition to workers’ compensation, which provides benefits to injured workers, you may be entitled to bring a third-party injury lawsuit against owners, general contractors or others responsible. Oftentimes, those lawsuits are based on violations of New York Labor Law 240(1). This law makes property owners and general contractors liable for any type of fall, including those from scaffolding and ladders. It also provides compensation for accidents caused by falling debris, construction materials and tools.
Our lawyers have represented clients practicing a variety of trades in scaffolding injury cases, including but not limited to:
- Window washers
- Heavy-equipment operators
- Crane operators
In addition to filing injury claims, our team undertakes wrongful death cases in pursuit of compensation for family members after the deaths of their loved ones in falls and in scaffolding accidents.
