[GRAPHIC: David Scher; Attorney At Law; BLOCK, O’TOOLE & MURPHY] Workers can be hurt when a ladder slips, when a ladder breaks. Sometimes the wrong ladder entirely is provided to the worker or maybe a ladder wasn’t the right safety device in the first place. [GRAPHIC: Jeffrey A. Block; Attorney At Law; BLOCK, O’TOOLE & MURPHY] Jeffrey Block: Block, O’Toole & Murphy has received hundreds of millions of dollars of case resolutions on behalf of very seriously injured clients. David Scher: And it’s those results that will protect future victims of ladder accidents and make sure that they receive adequate compensation. Jeffrey Block: New York has a great law called Labor Law 240. David Scher: And it protects workers, such as those that climb ladders, from gravity related accidents, such as falls. The law in New York places the ultimate responsibility for site safety on owners and general contractors. So if you’ve been involved in an accident involving a ladder, you very well may be entitled to compensation.
