We Know New York Construction And Scaffolding Law. We Can Help.
A scaffold accident or other fall on a construction site can be devastating for a construction worker. Injuries can keep workers off job sites for extended periods of time and result in injuries that may make it difficult or impossible to do the hard work that construction jobs require.
Workers’ compensation can take some of the financial pressure off injured workers, but it almost never fully compensates for the costs of injuries. At StolzenbergCortelli, LLP, we believe that anytime an unsafe work site plays a part in a construction accident, workers should be fully compensated for their injuries and inability to work. If you’re facing the financial pressure of being unable to work and needing expensive medical care, our experienced attorneys are ready to help you.
Fell From Scaffolding? Injured In A Ladder Accident? Learn If You Have A Case.
We represent workers with serious accident-related injuries. These can include:
- Neck and head injuries
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal trauma
- Permanent disability such as paraplegia
Accidents involving scaffolding and other construction materials are often caused by improperly manufactured, assembled or maintained scaffolding, or other unsafe job site conditions that result in falls from significant heights.
We understand that workers’ compensation almost always fails to cover the true costs of an accident. By helping injured workers file claims against responsible parties, we can help them recover additional compensation for:
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity in the case of permanent injuries
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
New York has unique laws when it comes to falls from scaffolding and elevated workplaces. We have the resources and experience to pursue compensation from every source.
