New York Laws Protect Workers Who Fall From Ladders
New York state labor laws protect those who build, repair, restore and modernize the buildings, roads, homes, schools, hospitals, and general infrastructure of the state. These laws also provide important rights and protection for those who work at elevated heights.

Our ladder injury lawyers are aggressive litigators who are committed to seeking justice on behalf of construction site injury victims in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, and all other boroughs.
Insufficient Training, Material Defects & Other Causes Of Accidents
According to a ladder accident study conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the majority of accident victims (66 percent) never received training on how to properly inspect ladders for defects prior to use.
Other issues contributing to the accidents were:
- Failure to secure the top of the ladder
- Ladders that broke during use
- Failure to secure ladders that are not self-supporting
- Failure to extend the top of the ladder at least three feet above the level of the landing
- Defects in manufacturing
- Rungs or steps that were not uniformly spaced
To find out if any of these facts or others exist in your case, we will conduct our own thorough investigation of your accident. We do not just rely on what the employer or the insurer tells us. Our only loyalty is to you and no one else.
