Labor Law Section 240 — The Bronx
The state of New York has established a comprehensive set of labor laws that take into account the enormous amount of construction that occurs in New York City as well as the dangerous jobs that construction workers do. New York Labor Law Section 240, commonly referred to as Labor 240, specifically relates to workers performing their job tasks from heights.
The Bronx Section 240 Labor Law attorneys at Albert Buzzetti & Associates have extensive experience representing workers from all occupations. Whether you fell off a ladder while trimming trees or were injured when a scaffolding collapsed, it is crucial that you contact a skilled attorney immediately. Based on your accident and injuries, you might be entitled to receive monetary compensation for lost wages, your medical bills and any physical therapy that is required.

- Inadequate railing or floor on platforms
