New York Labor Law is highly technical. Contractors and property owners may be held strictly liable for violations of Labor Law 240. Call (845) 208-8512 to discuss your case!

Understanding New York Labor Law

Section 240 provides protection for workers involved in demolition, repairing, cleaning, or building of a structure. If you suffered a fall from a serious height on the job and are now wondering what your legal options are, talk to a Newburgh work site accident attorney.

New York Labor Law, Section 240, states that all contractors and property owners must provide the following for the safety of workers:

  • Scaffolding
  • Hoists
  • Stays
  • Ladders
  • Slings
  • Hangers
  • Blocks
  • Pulleys
  • Braces
  • Irons
  • Ropes
  • Other devices

At Dreyer Law Offices, PLLC we know when these safety measures are not put in place.
