Window Washers Hanging Near Top of Manhattan Building After Scaffold Failure

The construction accident lawyers at Block O'Toole & Murphy are following a dramatic rescue effort of two window washers by members of the Fire Department of New York. The window washers were working on a scaffold near the top of the Hearst Building in Manhattan when their scaffold buckled, putting them both in grave danger.

Window washing, by its very nature, is a dangerous job. Window Washers are exposed to great dangers every day they go to work. When a window washer is not given a safe place to work, the consequences are tragic. In this case, a scaffold - - a device designed to protect the workers - - appears to have failed. There are specific laws in place to protect New York Window Washers. When these laws are violated, a window washer can suffer serious injury or death.
