What is New York Labor Law 240?
New York Labor Law 240, often known as the scaffold law, is a strong worker protection law. This law often plays a crucial role in scaffold injury cases because it gives workers the right to pursue compensation in several situations when a lawsuit might otherwise not be viable.
New York law prevents you from holding your employer or coworkers liable for your scaffolding fall injuries but allows you to pursue third-party lawsuits to recover compensation for your injuries. The scaffold law goes a step further, making the property owner and the general contractor overseeing the project responsible for providing proper protection while you are working on a scaffold.
