Scaffolding Falls & Accidents

Scaffolding Falls & Accidents

Workers in many occupations rely on safe, secure scaffolding to perform their jobs. When safety precautions are not taken, workers can suffer severe and catastrophic injuries from collapsing scaffolding, falling objects and other hazards.

Federal and New York laws are in place to protect construction workers, painters, roofers and other people who work on and around scaffolding. When construction site managers, scaffolding contractors and other parties fail to follow safety regulations, the lives of workers are put at risk.

Our New York Accident Attorneys Can Help

Eisenberg & Baum's New York construction accident attorneys have years of experience establishing the facts of accident cases, filing lawsuits when necessary, and helping workers recover for their injuries and lost wages.

When handling a scaffolding accident case, there are a number of questions to consider, such as:

  • Was the scaffolding properly constructed?
  • Were safety concerns properly addressed?
  • Were the scaffolding platforms properly secured?
  • Were workers provided with safety precautions such as safety harnesses and netting?
