New York’s Scaffolding Law: The Basics
In the most basic terms, New York’s Scaffolding Law ― otherwise known as Labor Code Section 240 ― protects construction workers from falls by requiring property owners and contractors to provide workers with adequate equipment, such as scaffolding, ladders and harnesses. Consequently, if a worker is injured in a fall, the general contractor or project owner may be held liable due to this statute.
However, every situation is different, which is why it is always best to speak to an experienced attorney as soon as possible following an accident. Only then will you know what legal recourse is available.
