What is Labor Law Section 240(1)?

Labor Law Section 240(1) is New York's scaffold law.  It states:

"All contractors and owners and their agents, except owners of one and two-family dwellings who contract for but do not direct or control the work, in the erection, demolition, renovation, repairing, altering, painting, or pointing of a building or structure shall furnish or erect, or cause to be furnished or erected for the performance of such labor, scaffolding, hoists, stays, ladders, slings, hangers, blocks, pulleys, braces, irons, ropes, and other devices which shall be so constructed, placed and operated as to give proper protection to a person so employed."

What does this mean to you if you have been injured in a scaffolding accident?  It means the property owner or contractor may be held responsible for the injuries.  These laws are designed to protect construction workers who are injured in scaffolding accidents and other falls from heights.
