The Lawsuit Reform Alliance of New York (LRANY), where Unshackle Upstate is pleased to be a Board Member, recently launched a new video series that is aimed at educating New Yorkers about the problem of lawsuit abuse.

 

This week’s video focuses on New York’s Scaffold Law, under which contractors and property owners can be held 100% liable for elevation related construction injuries, even where the worker was negligent.  Not to mention that it is a HUGE cost to taxpayers as it drives up the cost of public construction, new homes and home repairs.  It is a symbol of the old New York and it must be reformed NOW!
