When a construction worker or other type of worker is on an elevated surface, such as scaffolding or building that is under construction, the potential for injuries always exists. Though New York has specific laws in place that govern safety measures for workers on construction sites and those who work on elevated surfaces, falls from heights can still occur. These types of accidents can cause serious, lasting injuries and leave the worker unable to return to his or her job.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a fall or gravity-related accident, turn to our experienced personal injury and construction accident lawyers at Dreyer Boyajian LLP. We have been representing injured workers for over 30 years, using our extensive knowledge of New York Labor Law 240 and New York Labor Law 241 when pursuing compensation for the injuries they have suffered. We investigate and examine all aspects of your case, including the work site itself, the safety measures that were in place, the condition of the ladder or scaffolding and a number of other factors.
