Queens Scaffolding Collapse Lawyers

Almost everywhere you look in New York there is a construction project going on. Although construction work is certainly good for the economy, it is one of the most dangerous industries in the state. One of the primary reasons for this is the number of falls involving ladders, scaffolding and cranes.

Workers who fall from heights are frequently seriously injured or killed. It is important that they or their families receive the compensation allowed by New York State and New York City law for treatment of injuries, lost wages and pain and suffering. Contact our Queens law firm for guidance with your injuries.

Scaffolding Accidents Covered Under Unique Laws That Benefit the Injured

The City of New York has unique laws related to liability for scaffolding accidents and holds contractors and property owners accountable for the safety of their workers and pedestrians who may be harmed by unsafe scaffolding, a scaffolding collapse or other scaffolding accidents. If you were injured, it is important to work with an attorney who understands the specific provisions of the New York scaffolding laws. We ask questions about the assembly, the work platform, the process for securing the scaffolding and the bracing. Our understanding of the scaffolding laws and our knowledge of the right questions to ask give us — and our clients — an edge in scaffolding cases.
