Though there are complex regulations and construction industry standards that govern scaffolding on construction sites, scaffolding accidents can still occur and result in severe and fatal injuries. Our attorney at the Law Office of Jeffrey I. Amtman handles cases involving clients who have suffered serious injuries as the result of a fall from a scaffold or collapse of a scaffolding structure.
The labor laws in New York and New Jersey that describe scaffolding and other elements of a construction job should be easy for a contractor or property owner to understand. However, many of these regulations are not followed and as a result, place workers in jeopardy. We have extensive experience handling construction accident cases, including scaffolding accidents. Our lawyer can take the time to explain your rights and examine all possible violations of the established construction laws.
Scaffolding accidents are not the only types of accidents that happen off the ground at a construction site. We also handle cases involving:
Window washer accidents
Defective safety equipment
If you suffered serious injuries, such as head injuries, brain injuries or spinal cord injuries, in a scaffolding accident, your employer or another party may be held responsible. We thoroughly examine all aspects of the case, including the worksite, its safety measures, and the condition of the scaffold or other elevated equipment. We can then pursue compensation for your losses through a variety of ways, including workers’ compensation.
We can assist you in seeking compensation for the losses you have suffered after a scaffolding collapse or accident. Contact a construction injury lawyer at the Law Office of Jeffrey I. Amtman in Englewood, New Jersey. Call today.
