A man was seriously injured after falling about 15 feet from a ladder into a hole at a Long Island City construction site.
The man, whose identity was not immediately released, fell about 9:32 a.m. inside the site near Northern Boulevard and 40th Road. He was unconscious when medical crews rescued him.
When a fall from a ladder or scaffold happens, the New York State Labor Law applies. This means the owner of the construction site and the general contractor are responsible for the injuries sustained. An injured worker’s citizenship status does not matter. Every worker is afforded the same rights, whether they are in a union or non-union.
