Window Washing Lawyers in New York

Aggressive Legal Representation

New York is known for its high rise buildings with large windows that seem to always appear clean. These windows offer views into an intricate city. However, what people do not think about is how these glass openings get so clean. Window washing is a necessary job in New York, requiring men or women to go to great heights to clean the windows. Unfortunately, if the scaffolding or structures used are not sturdy, injuries can occur. A window washing accident can cause debilitating damage and even death. If you have been injured or lost a loved one, contact our construction accident attorneys today!

What You Need to Know About Window Washing Accidents

Under New York § 202, under the labor laws, the building manager, the lessee, or other agents have a duty to provide stable devices and equipment for the washers to clean the windows. Labor law §240 also provides protection for window washers. The latter clarifies safety regulations for scaffolding and high rise structures. If employers or building managers fail to provide for these safety provisions, they can be held accountable for the injuries and damage that occur.

Common reasons for window washing accidents include:

  • Unsecure guardrails
  • Scaffolding fails
  • Improperly maintained safety equipment
  • Safety gear not provided
  • Scaffolding breakage
  • Unsecure ladders or scaffolds

Individuals arriving to wash windows deserve a safe environment that protects them from harm. New York statutes offer this safety. However, if people in charge do not comply with established regulations and rules, it can cause serious injury.
