Window Washer Accident Lawyers

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

Professional window washing is a dangerous job, especially in New York with all of the high-rise buildings presently there and more going up all the time. In New York, a window washer is constantly busy and rarely out of work. An accidental fall from several stories up can cause the worker to be out of work possibly for good. It can leave him permanently disabled or end his life. Following rules and regulations set forth by the state is crucial for the safety of these workers. It is important for the worker to follow the rules as well as the employers and owners.

Laws for protection

Because of the number of window washer accidents, the New York state legislature added a labor law that is meant specifically for window washers. It basically states that the person over the building such as the owner or manager must provide safety devices for the workers while they are at their building. If one of the workers is injured, that owner or manager is held liable if they didn’t provide safety devices. If they did provide the safety device but it wasn’t an approved device or if they provided an approved device that wasn’t properly maintained and it failed, they are responsible for the accident.

These safety devices must be sent before the board of standard and appeals and be approved to be used on a job site. If they are not approved, the worker should not be provided with them. Many of these types of accidents could be avoided if everyone followed the regulations set forth by the state.

Other incidents covered by the law

There are other incidences covered by the law, as well, such as an object falling on a worker or the worker falling himself. They are also covered if they have an accident from exposure to the elements, an accident from a fire, electricity or an explosion, an accident from moving heavy materials or an accident that pertains to operating machinery or equipment. A window washer can be covered for basically any accident that comes into play while he is working.

In some cases, the Scaffold Law will have an affect on the case. This law states that the owner or general contractor is still liable for the accident even if the worker was negligent. Certain sizes and types of buildings are exempt from this law. An experienced attorney can determine which laws will be included for a particular worker’s case.

Overall

Window washing accidents can be detrimental and leave lasting effects for years or even permanently. A worker can spend the rest of his life paralyzed or a family can lose a loved one all because of safety issues and not following regulations.
