Painters spend much of their working day on scaffolds and ladders and at other heights. As a result, painters are at an especially high risk for painting accident & injuries. Falls from ladders or scaffolds can lead to head injuries, spinal injuries, disability or death. Our New York City injury law Firm understands that workers who work at heights require specific legal protections. New York City Labor Law 240 gives painters and other workers who have been injured in scaffolding accidents the right to file suit against the building owner and contractor. This law gives workers who have been injured in scaffolding or ladder accidents the ability to recover full compensation for their medical expenses, lost income and other damages.
