Were You Injured In A Scaffolding Accident?
New York labor laws impose “absolute liability” for injuries occurring as a result of a fall from a scaffolding. If you were injured in a scaffolding accident, the law is on your side, and you deserve compensation for the losses you have suffered.
At Surdez & Perez P.C., our attorneys are intimately familiar with New York labor laws as they pertain to scaffold accidents. We are on the side of injured workers and have a proven record of success helping clients in Queens and throughout New York City.
Scaffolding And Safety Regulations
The laws place strict regulations on the erection, maintenance and dismantling of scaffolds. To maintain safety, the scaffold should be inspected daily, cleared of debris, protected from contact with vehicles, and free of ice and snow. Proper signage should be placed where needed and no excess materials should be stored on the platforms.
Failure to follow these regulations can have tragic results. Construction workers, window washers, painters and other laborers put themselves in danger every time they work on a scaffolding. The dangers are only increased when the scaffold is negligently constructed and maintained.
Our clients include New York workers who have been injured in accidents involving all types of scaffolding, including tubular, rolling, baker, wood and pole scaffolds.
