Ladder Fall Injury Lawyers in Schenectady, Albany, Troy and Saratoga,
Seeking Compensation Under New York Labor Law § 240
In New York, construction workers must be provided with properly erected and operated scaffolds and ladders. Owners and contractors are required to adopt proactive safety measures designed to prevent workers from being injured in falls. By statute and regulations, ladders, scaffolds and similar devices are required to be assembled and secured so that workers cannot fall or be injured. The personal fault of a construction worker who falls may not constitute a defense to a labor law claim. Also, the law may provide for a reduced burden of proof for a construction worker who has a fatal fall.
If you have been seriously injured or have lost a loved one in a fall from a scaffold, our experienced Albany scaffolding accident attorneys at the law firm of the Law Offices of Sanford Rosenblum, P.C. may be able to help you hold the responsible parties accountable for your construction site injury claim.
How Does New York’s Scaffold Law Affect Your Case?
Under New York Labor Law § 240, general contractors and property owners are responsible for making sure that adequate safety equipment and procedures are in place to protect workers on scaffolds, and they cannot delegate these responsibilities to anyone else.
If you have suffered a serious injury or have lost a family member in a scaffolding accident, this law may enable you to bring a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
Our firm is exclusively represents injured people, and we deliberately restrict our caseload so that we can provide personal attention to each client. This approach has allowed us to develop a track record of getting substantial results for injured workers and their families.
