Joaquin F. Escobar Camacho v. Ironclad Artists Inc., et al.

Here the injured worker won because he fell off a scaffold that didn’t have guard rails when it tipped over. The Appellate Division, First Department, found for Camacho, even though he didn’t unlock the wheels on the scaffold, because that goes towards his potential negligence which is not defense under the Scaffold Law. It is the defendants burden to make sure he is provided with a scaffold that was safe for the job, and since this one fell over and didn’t have guardrails, they failed to meet their burden and the scaffold it obviously wasn’t safe enough to provide him with proper protection.
