No Margin for Error
New York law grants special protection and litigation advantages to workers who were injured as a result of gravity-related injuries. Although the New York "scaffold law" is more nuanced, it basically states that workers hurt by falling objects or debris on the work site may still be able to recover money damage awards even if they were partially at fault.
This law was enacted because the New York lawmakers rightfully regard gravity-related construction site injuries to be among the most hazardous. With objects as large and heavy as those commonly hovering over the heads of construction workers, there is no margin for error. One small signal error or oversight on the part of a supervisor or site safety manager will mean almost certain death for the workers below.
