Window Washer Workers Third-Party Accident Claims
If the injuries from your work area window washer accident were caused by the negligence or reckless behavior of someone other than your employer or co-worker, for example, if you are dealing with explosives or other window washer device and a part malfunctions due to a defect in manufacturing of the window washer device, that window washer device manufacturing company could be liable in a personal injury product liability action, for injuries sustained from the window washer accident, and you may also be entitled to file a personal injury claim against the window washer company, through what is known as a third-party-liability claim. You can file a personal injury claim for your injuries sustained in the window washer accident, 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.

NYC Brooklyn Window Washer Lawyers That Do Workers Compensation & Third-Party-Liability-Claims
In NY, including the metropolitan area, if you are injured while, washing windows or cleaning building exterior surfaces, 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 under workers compensation, which your employer is required by law to provide. For example, if you are working for a window washing company and fall from a scaffold while washing windows because of a mistake that you or a coworker made, that would entitle you to workers compensation, which in fact, often does not cover all your medical and other related expenses. However, if the injuries from your window washing or cleaning of an exterior building surface accident were caused by the negligence or reckless behavior of someone other than your employer or co-worker, for example, if you are washing windows while standing on a scaffold and the safety harness breaks due to a defect in manufacturing of the safety harness, that safety harness manufacturer could be liable in a personal injury or wrongful death product liability action, for injuries that you sustained in your fall, and you may also be entitled to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim against the safety harness company, through what is known as A Third-Party-Liability Claim. You can file a personal injury claim for your injuries sustained in the window washing accident, 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. As your attorneys, we can explain your construction area fall area fall options in detail. 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.
