You May Be Entitled to Compensation after a Scaffold Accident

Scaffold-AccidentScaffolding is necessary to perform certain work at great heights. When scaffolding is properly and securely assembled and placed, a worker can safely perform his or her work. However, when scaffolding is not properly constructed, or is otherwise unsafe, scaffolding accidents and falls can occur which result in serious injury or death.

In New York, there are laws in place to protect workers who utilize a scaffold to perform their work. Section 240 of the New York Labor Laws states as follows:

All contractors and owners and their agents, except owners of one and two-family dwellings who contract for but do not direct or control the
work, in the erection, demolition, repairing, altering, painting, cleaning or pointing of a building or structure shall furnish or erect, or cause to be furnished or erected for the performance of such labor, scaffolding, hoists, stays, ladders, slings, hangers, blocks, pulleys, braces, irons, ropes, and other devices which shall be so constructed, placed and operated as to give proper protection to a person so employed.

If you have been injured in a New York scaffolding accident, or if a family member was injured or killed because of a fall from a scaffold or other work platform, then you or your family member may be entitled to compensation for injuries sustained in the scaffolding accident. It is important that you discuss your case with an experienced New York personal injury lawyer who has experience with scaffold accidents and injuries which result from falls from an elevated worksite.
