What is New York Labor Law 240 for Construction Workers?
New York Labor 240 is designed to protect you from serious injury and death at your workplace. It was enacted more than a hundred years ago to protect workers whose duties took place at great heights, on or near tall buildings. Still in place, this law continues to protect workers from many different types of construction accidents.
At KGG we will hold property owners, contractors and subcontractors accountable when oversight or negligence leads to serious injury or disability for construction workers, such as for not providing fall protection. Our KGG legal team and investigators look carefully into your accident to determine if the appropriate construction safety devices were being used and properly implemented. If their misuse or disuse could have been the cause of your injury we can use that evidence to support your claim.
