As a window washer, your safety is protected by law — but it is not guaranteed. Violation of one of these laws, resulting in serious injury to you or the wrongful death of a relative, could provide the basis for a lawsuit. The owner of the building where the accident occurred is responsible for lost wages, medical bills, reduced earning capacity and compensation for pain, suffering and disability. Gary S. Alweiss works hard to achieve this justice for you.
Many New York window washers and window installers work on scaffolds, as do roofers and iron workers. If you were hurt due to a scaffold collapse, scaffold fall or any other scaffold accident that is traceable to a building owner's failure to comply with state safety standards, we can help.
Protecting the Rights of New York Workers for More Than 30 Years
State law specifically protects window washers by requiring certain safety measures. You must be provided with safe methods of cleaning exterior and interior windows of buildings, first of all. These safety measures call for the use of safety vests, lifelines, harnesses, secure ladders and anchors to link into for protection from falls.
Despite this proactive legislation, many window washing accidents, injuries and deaths are caused by insufficient or malfunctioning safety devices. Building owners who employ window washers can be considered liable for failure to properly equip these workers.
Window washers often work at high altitudes, risking their lives in order to complete a job. If you were hurt in a window washing accident in New York, contact us. Call 877-361-5780 toll free.
