Recognizing that construction sites are inherently dangerous, the New York legislature enacted statutes mandating that owners and general contractors take reasonable steps to ensure a safe work environment on all job sites. New York labor law §240 requires that owners and contractors construct, place or operate “scaffolding, hoists, stays, ladders, slings, hangers, blocks, pulleys, braces, irons, ropes and other devices” so as to give proper protection to workers on the site. The statute covers not only injuries that result from defective or poorly constructed ladders or scaffolding, but any “height-related” injuries on a job site.

At the Law Offices of David W. Haber, in Mineola, New York, we have more than 17 years of legal experience. We understand the devastating effect a personal injury can have on your life. You may be unable to work and meet your financial obligations. You may need long term medical care, including rehabilitation or physical therapy. You may experience such pain that you have been forced to give up activities that you love.

We offer comprehensive counsel to people who have been injured in height-related accidents on a construction site, including individuals hurt in ladder and scaffold accidents. We will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your case, traveling to the construction site, if necessary. We will work with expert witnesses, including engineers and accident reconstruction specialists, to prepare and present the most compelling case for your full and fair financial recovery.
