New York Laws Protect Construction Workers Injured In Ladder And Scaffolding Falls
If you work in construction, demolition or another job that requires you to work at heights or elevations, New York has a special law protecting you, called the scaffold law.
Our knowledgeable attorneys at The Klein Law Group, P.C., in New York City are familiar with this unique law, and we can help you obtain the benefits you are entitled to following an injury resulting from a scaffolding or ladder fall.
Beyond Worker’s Comp For Those Who Have Fallen From Defective Ladders And Scaffolds
While you may believe that filing a workers’ compensation claim is the best way to recover the benefits you need, other options are available under the New York scaffold law. In addition to workers’ compensation, workers injured in an accident involving a scaffold may recover full wages and other benefits, including medical expenses and pain and suffering.
Following a construction accident or any accident involving heights in the workplace, it is important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. Do not talk to anyone else about your injury, especially an investigator with your employer’s insurance company. Anything you say following an accident could be used to deny your claim.
