New York’s Unique Laws on Scaffolding Accidents

Thankfully, the state of New York has taken measures to ensure workers are protected in the event of such a serious accident. There are special protections under Section 240 of the Labor Code designed to help workers who were injured due to a scaffolding accident.

Under this code, building owners and general contractors are required to provide proper safety protection for all on-site workers. Further, liability for scaffolding accidents is strictly placed on employers and contractors. Section 240 also allows for workers to recover a wider range of compensation than usually offered under workers’ compensation claims.

For example, you may be able to claim the following types of damages:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Additional expenses
