If I’m injured in a falling object construction accident, who is liable?

In this situation, New York labor law section 240 allows workers injured by falling objects to file a claim against the property owner or general contractor. Under this law, these parties are held strictly liable, meaning that an injured worker does not have to prove that the accident was necessarily caused directly by these parties’ actions. When falling objects or a fall from significant heights causes a worker to be injured, these two parties are almost always held financially accountable.
