If the injuries from your work area fall were caused by the negligence or reckless behavior of someone other than your employer or co-worker, for example, if you are painting on a ladder and the ladder step breaks due to a defect in manufacturing of the ladder, that ladder company could be liable in a personal injury product liability action, for injuries sustained in your fall, and you may also be entitled to file a personal injury claim against the ladder company, through what is known as a third-party-liability claim. You can file a personal injury claim for your injuries sustained in the fall, in addition to collecting workers compensation. This allows you to recover damages including pain and suffering, loss of consortium and other compensation that is not recoverable under New York workers compensation laws.

Additional Consideration under New York’s Labor Laws
New York provides additional protection for construction area fall workers under several sections of the State Labor Laws. These include: N.Y. LAB. LAW § 200 : NY Code – Section 200: General duty to protect health and safety of employees; enforcement may make a property owner or contractor liable for an injury that occurred as a result of a hazardous condition of which they were aware or should have been aware. Section 240, called the “scaffold law,” states that a contractor or property owner (excluding owners of single- or two-family private homes not in direct control of the work being performed) is responsible for providing proper and non-defective safety devices to protect workers who perform their jobs from an elevated position. Section 241-6 states that property owners and, in some cases, general contractors are responsible for providing a safe working environment, including safety equipment, and cannot delegate that responsibility.
