Ladder & Scaffold Accident Lawyers in New City
When there is the improper use of certain types of equipment on construction sites, serious or fatal accidents can happen. Falls from heights are one of the most common reasons for injuries on construction sites, and often, the improper use of ladders or scaffolding is to blame. Falls can lead to serious, debilitating, or fatal injuries.
If you are suffering after a ladder or scaffolding accident or you lost a loved one in an incident on a construction site, you have rights. The attorneys at Greenspan & Greenspan P.C. can help protect your rights and help you fight for the compensation you deserve through a third-party injury claim. Our team is happy to evaluate your case and determine if this is an appropriate option for you, even if you are already pursuing benefits through a workers’ compensation claim.
Safety Is Paramount On New York Construction Sites
Construction workers, particularly those working on tall buildings in New York, often have to work on scaffolding or on ladders to complete their jobs. It is critical for workers to know how to work in these environments safely, and employers should always provide safety training and protective equipment when necessary. Falls can have catastrophic consequences for construction workers, including:
- Spinal cord injuries or paralysis
- Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones and fractures
New York labor law Section 240 allows workers to hold property owners accountable for injuries suffered in scaffolding or ladder accidents. We will carefully and thoroughly evaluate your case and determine if you have grounds to move forward with a civil claim. Our New City personal injury attorneys also represent undocumented workers who may not know where to turn for help after a construction site accident.
When you turn to us, you will have a law firm with decades of legal experience on your side. Our goal is to help you regain your financial stability after an accident, securing what you need to move forward with confidence.
