Scaffolding & Ladder Accident Attorney in NYC
New York City Construction Accident Law Firm, Also Serving the Bronx & Queens
If you or a family member has been injured in a scaffold or ladder accident in New York City, you need a top-notch lawyer in your corner fighting for proper compensation for your injuries. Injuries sustained in scaffolding and ladder accidents and height-related falls are often devastating. Many times, the failure to provide proper scaffolding and harnesses causes a severe injury. Ladder and scaffolding accidents can also be caused by deficient guardrails, side brackets, locking pins, and motors.
Scaffolding accidents can lead to:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
In some cases, employers fail to provide proper training and supervision, or even harnesses and other crucial safety equipment. Ladders are often inadequate, broken, missing rungs, have defective feet, or are unsuitable for the job. Sadly, many accidents could have been prevented by proper preparation and planning. Once an accident does occur, it’s vital that the victims have the help of an experienced New York City scaffolding and ladder lawyer who understands the laws, the roles of the different parties involved, and how to overcome the techniques employed by insurance companies to deny victims their just compensation.
