What Were You Doing When You Fell?
There are many reasons why you may have suffered injuries:
- Were you working on scaffolding?
- Were you climbing a ladder?
- Were you working on a roof?
- Did unsafe conditions contribute to your fall?
Under New York Labor Law Section 240, the responsibility for construction accidents falls squarely on the general contractor and the owner of the site. If you have been injured through a fall due to the negligence of others or through no fault of your own, you are entitled to full and just compensation for the injuries you have suffered.
Does It Matter If You Contributed To The Fall?
Even if you are partially responsible for your injuries, you can still get compensation. For instance, if you fell off the roof and were hurt because you failed to wear the proper safety equipment, New York Labor Law Section 241 will factor in your own negligence when determining your right to compensation. However, you may still be entitled to compensation beyond what Worker's Compensation provides.
