Scaffolding and Ladder Accidents

Workers on a scaffolding

Scaffolding and Ladder Accidents Lawyer

Construction workers operate in some of the most dangerous areas of any U.S. industry. Amongst construction accidents, scaffolding accidents cause over 4,500 injuries and 60 deaths yearly—New York’s Labor Laws 240 and 241 outline specific job site safety requirements to keep workers safe. Everyone on the job site, including owners, general contractors, subcontractors, etc., should comply with these requirements to prevent safety risks. 

If you’ve been injured in a scaffolding or ladder accident, you may have the grounds to seek damages in addition to the workers’ compensation you may be entitled to. A workplace injury case is complex and requires the help of a qualified personal injury lawyer. Attorney Mark T. Freeley at The North Shore Injury Lawyer has been representing scaffolding and ladder accident victims in Nassau county, Suffolk county, and all five New York City boroughs for over thirty years.
