Brooklyn and NYC Construction Area Fall Lawyer

Construction Area Fall From Heights Attorney

The Construction Area Fall from Height Lawyers at Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP., have decades of experience in handling of on-the-job personal injury claims, as well as, worker’s compensation construction site area fall accident claims, relating to workers falling from heights.  Our law firm is proud to have served seriously injured construction area fall workers, by bringing construction area fall accident  and workers compensation claims on their behalf. These construction area fall claims have resulted in multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements, over the years, throughout New York State, and the New York City counties of the Bronx, New York, Queens, Richmond, and Kings Counties. As you look around New York, the increase in the construction and remodeling of office buildings, shopping centers, schools, places of worship, medical centers, parking decks, transit centers and infrastructure projects is steadily increasing. These construction projects often involve the use of cranes, scaffolds, ladders, elevated power tools and equipment, temporary platforms, high fences and barriers, man lifts, spider lifts, demolition equipment and explosives, high power electrical lines and poles, steel frame structures, and of course safety equipment, each of which, if not utilized properly, can provide ample opportunities for construction area workers to fall from heights, while working, causing fall related serious personal injuries, and fall related wrongful death. Speak to a construction area fall lawyer at Bisogno & Meyerson and let us help you get compensation for your serious fall injury.
The New York construction industry employs a multitude of trades people and laborers, who often work from great heights, including painters, welders, electrical pole workers, carpenters, heavy equipment operators, electricians, pipe-fitters, roofers, and structural iron and steel workers. These construction contractors and workers are required to acquire licenses, permits, and safety training, and to adhere to certain safety rules and regulations on the job site, relating to working from heights, which if not properly followed, cause construction area fall accidents and falls from heights, often resulting in worker physical injury and sometimes, even death. In New York, including the metropolitan area, if you are injured by falling from heights on-the-job, in the normal course of your employment, through your own actions, or those of a co-worker, you are covered by workers compensation, which your employer is required by law to provide. For example, if you are working for a painting company and fall from a ladder while painting, because you forgot to put on your safety harness, that would entitle you to workers compensation, which in fact, often does not cover all your medical and other related expenses.

Additional Consideration under New York’s Labor Laws

N.Y. LAB. LAW § 240 : NY Code – Section 240: Scaffolding and other devices for use of employees

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.

We are here to help you, whether you were injured as a construction area fall worker or as a visitor to a construction area fall site.
