A review of New York's "Scaffold Law"

Construction workers in New York are protected by a special section New York's labor law, which builders and construction professionals don't enjoy in many other states around the U.S. Under Labor Law § 240 (popularly referred to as the Scaffold Law), property owners and their contracted agents (general contractors) are responsible for erecting adequate safety devices to protect workers from injuries or death from falls. Since its passage in 1885, the law has helped countless construction workers sue for additional damages over and above workers' compensation they might also be entitled to.
