What 'Falls' Within Labor Law Section 240(1)?

On November 1, 2010, the New York Law Journal featured an article by two of Block O'Toole & Murphy's construction accident attorneys: David L. Scher and Daniel P. O'Toole. In the article, the attorneys discuss New York Labor Law Section 240(1) and which falling object cases are covered by this statute. According to Scher and O'Toole, there is still room for debate on this issue, although many thought that the December 2009 decision in Runner v. New York Stock Exchange Inc. would simplify identifying which falling object accidents were covered by Section 240(1).

Can Injured, Undocumented Construction Workers Recover Lost Wages?

On February 22, 2010, the New York Law Journal featured an article by two of Block O'Toole & Murphy's construction accident attorneys: Stephen J. Murphy and David L. Scher. The central question of the piece is whether undocumented construction workers have the right to recover lost earnings resulting from injuries on the job. As they put it, "If a worker has obtained employment without documentation, a violation of the law, should he be able to recover lost wages after he is hurt on the job?"
