In 1885, New York state adopted a scaffold law that held property owners and contractors liable for all “gravity-related” injuries. Other states have since dropped similar laws, opting for federal workers’ compensation insurance instead. But New York’s law – protected by labor unions and trial lawyers – stays on the books, adding millions in additional insurance costs to public projects.
