Accidents > Scaffolding Accidents

If you have been injured in a scaffold accident, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your rights to compensation. Even if you are receiving workers compensation, you may be eligible for additional damages if your injuries were caused by a third party (someone other than your employer or a coworker). Examples of third parties include scaffolding manufacturers, a subcontractor who erected the scaffold, or a landlord. Settlements and verdicts awarded to victims of scaffold accidents caused by third-party negligence are typically much greater than workers’ compensation.

Our scaffold accident attorneys have the experience and the objectivity necessary to truly determine the cause of a scaffolding accident. We will work hard to ensure that you recover damages from any and all negligent parties, including third parties such as building owners, subcontractors or scaffold manufacturers. We will ensure that the spirit and the letter of Labor Law 240 is used to your advantage as it applies in your case.

All fees are strictly on a contingent basis. A contingent fee basis means that the attorneys are paid only at the time when, and if, they recover money damages for the client. A contingent fee thereby allows an injured person with little or no financial resources to obtain competent legal assistance. At the time recovery is obtained, the attorney's fee is a percentage of the award in the case. If there is no recovery, there will be no attorney fees.
