Injured on Scaffolding in New York City?
New York state has some of the nation's most stringent laws protecting the rights of workers who have been injured on construction sites. In particular, New York Labor Law Section 240 confers strict liability on property owners in cases involving falls from scaffolds, ladders, and elevated positions. The law also applies in accident cases involving falling construction debris, tools, and other objects.
If you have suffered a construction injury involving a scaffold or ladder, or if you have been injured in any other type of construction site accident, you should retain the services of an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.

While Section 240 levels the playing field for construction workers, there can be complex factual and legal issues that can complicate the picture such as:
- Who really owns the property on which the accident occurred?
- What types of medical care and rehabilitation services does the accident victim need?
- Was a third party (such as an equipment supplier or subcontractor) responsible for the accident?
- Did the worker's employer violate a safety regulation?
