John Slawsky v. Turner Construction Co., et al.

Here the Appellate Division, First Department Court applied a principle we have come to understand only over the past 10 or so years: that objects don’t have to fall straight down onto a worker and don’t have to fall long distances for Labor Law § 240 to apply. Here, a heavy object fell a short distance and tips; Labor Law § 240 still applies particularly where the lifting device is inadequate to hold it.
