In the matter of Bonczar v. AMC Theaters, the plaintiff filed suit claiming violations of Labor Law 240(1) after he fell from an A-Frame ladder he was using to install a smoke detection system. At his deposition, the plaintiff was equivocal on the issue of whether he had checked the ladder to ensure that it was locked in place when he ascended it prior to his fall, admitting that he may not have done so.
