Scaffolding Accident Attorneys in New York

Representing Victims of Construction Site Falls

Construction is dangerous work, especially when workers are required to work on scaffolds, ladders and other high places. That is why New York law requires property owners and general contractors to take special measures to protect workers from serious falls.

If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in a fall from a scaffold or ladder, our experienced scaffolding accident attorneys at Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster, LLP, may be able to help you pursue compensation and hold the responsible parties accountable.

Going Beyond Workers' Comp to Pursue Full Compensation

Normally, if you are injured on the job, you are limited to the medical and financial benefits you can get from the workers' compensation system. However, if someone other than your direct employer is responsible for a work injury, you may be entitled to additional compensation.

Under New York Labor Law 240, property owners and general contractors are responsible for making sure scaffolds, ladders and other high places are secure for workers.

This law requires the use of safety equipment such as ropes, pulleys, slings and braces to protect workers. If you were injured or a family member died in an accident in which the proper procedures were not followed, you may have a personal injury or wrongful death claim.

Our attorneys are dedicated to getting results for construction accident victims and their families by carefully investigating all possible sources of compensation in every case we accept.
