Scaffold Fall Representative Case

Fall from a Scaffold Scaffold Fall

Our client, a construction worker, fell 60 feet when the scaffolding he was standing on tipped to the side. Our client’s employer asked for the case to be dismissed, saying that the injured man was a “recalcitrant worker” who was injured because he failed to use a safety line. We proved otherwise.

  • The worker’s safety harness was unavailable.
  • There was no independent safety line at the job site.
  • The scaffolding was not equipped with side rails.

New York’s labor law does not require that an injured worker be completely free from blame or negligence, only that it can be proven that the owner or contractor violated a statute. In this instance, our construction accident attorneys showed the court that the employer violated Labor Law Section 240(1) in at least three ways.
