The day started as just an ordinary day. You got up and went to work, and you expected to finish your shift and move on with your day. Only, this was the day that something went wrong. This was the day that you would be hurt on a construction scaffold. This was the day that would change your life.

Common Scaffolding Injuries

Our New York accident lawyers represent New Jersey and New York construction workers who have been injured in scaffolding accidents. While each accident happens under different circumstances and results in unique injuries, we commonly represent workers or their surviving family members after:
  • Electrocutions. Overhead power lines can be dangerous for scaffolding workers. Lightning can also pose a serious safety threat. Workers should always be aware of power lines and weather conditions and exercise extreme caution.
  • Falls. Without proper safety equipment a fall from a scaffold can result in a serious injury or death. 
  • Equipment injuries. Scaffolding workers perform their jobs in tight quarters with little room for error. It is easy to get struck by or hurt by a piece of equipment if a mistake is made.

All of these potential injuries can be serious or even fatal. They may also be preventable.
