Scaffolding & Ladder Accidents in New York
Have You Been Injured in a Fall From a High Place?
Construction workers and other people who work in high places have special legal protections in New York. If you have been injured in a fall from a scaffold or ladder, you should contact an attorney to make sure you are getting all of the compensation you are legally entitled to. Likewise, if you have been injured by an object that fell from a height or was improperly hoisted, you may be entitled to monetary damages.
At Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC, we help scaffolding and ladder accident victims pursue personal injury claims to compensate them for their pain and suffering as well as to cover their medical bills and lost wages. Based in the Bronx and Queens, we serve clients throughout the New York metro area.
Contact us today for a free consultation with a hard-working, honest personal injury lawyer. We will not charge you any fees unless we help you get compensated for your injuries.
Holding Property Owners and General Contractors Accountable
Section 240 of the New York Labor Law is designed to protect anyone employed "in the erection, demolition, repairing, altering, painting, cleaning or pointing of a building or structure." This law makes property owners and general contractors responsible for taking steps such as:
- Providing functioning scaffolds, ladders, belts, harnesses, lifelines and other safety devices
- Making sure that these safety devices are properly installed on the work site
- Ensuring that workers using these devices have been properly trained
If you have been injured in a fall from a scaffold, ladder, work platform or other high place, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against the property owner and general contractor in addition to any workers' compensation benefits you may be entitled to receive.
Seeking Fair Compensation for Your Serious Injuries
Scaffolding and ladder accidents can cause devastating injuries, including major fractures, internal injuries, brain damage and herniated disks. Some of the clients our firm has represented have needed multiple surgeries, including lumbar discectomy and cervical fusion, after ladder and scaffolding accidents.
