When working in multi-level structures, construction workers need a safe way to get from one level to the next. This is referred to as providing vertical passage. State law requires that elevators, ramps, stairways or some other form of safe passage are available for workers to use. At a minimum, ladders that are tall enough to gain access to the next level must be readily available.
Without a way to safely access higher levels of the structure, workers are left to find their own way up. This frequently involves the use of haphazard and insufficient ladders or ramps and other makeshift modes of vertical passage that put the construction worker at unnecessary risk. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a construction accident involving the failure to provide vertical passage, you should speak to a New York workplace injury lawyer as soon as possible.
Atthe Law Offices of Sanford Rosenblum, P.C., we help construction workers to recover full and fair compensation for serious injuries suffered due to the negligence of contractors who put cost containment and convenience ahead of worker safety. You can rely on us to do everything in my power to secure the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.
