Labor Law

Morris Duffy Alonso Faley & Pitcoff are specialists in the area of construction accidents, particularly involving the New York Labor Law. We have represented owners, constructors, general contractors, subcontractors, engineers and other design professionals successfully on major construction projects throughout New York City. We have defended thousands of cases brought under the New York Labor Laws, Sections 240(1), 241(6) and 200. The firm has extensively written on the New York Labor Law (also known as The Scaffold Law) for the New York Law Journal. Our firm has taken numerous cases to the Court of Appeals involving issues concerning the Labor Law and the Workers Compensation Act of 1996. These include cases of grave injury, closed head injuries, thumb injuries and blindness.

Indemnification is a critical component of these claims, requiring careful review of contractual provisions and analysis of the significant body of law concerning indemnification in New York. MDAFP has extensive expertise in this area. We use this expertise to promptly tender cases to co-defendants or third-party defendants and seek pass-throughs as soon as legally possible. Our risk management experience in this area has been utilized by many clients.

Several attorneys at our firm frequently give lectures and seminars in this area of the law.
