Workers’ Compensation Claims
Like many construction accidents, a scaffolding accident often results in serious injury or accidental death. If you or a loved one was hurt in a scaffolding accident, you may be entitled to recover financial money damages from contractors, scaffold contractor and project managers in addition to workers compensation for your injuries. Workers’ compensation will cover medical expenses and a portion of lost wages.
Third-party Claims (claims against others than your employer)
In a scaffolding accident, your employer may not be the only responsible party. You may also be able to pursue additional damages for injuries or death in a scaffolding collapse or fall caused by:
- Ladder accidents
- Falling debris or equipment
- Forklifts, cranes, or construction trucks
- Unsafe working conditions
- Scaffolding design defects or manufacturing flaws
In New York, Labor Law § 240 may entitle you to additional compensation, even if you may have contributed to the accident or are uncertain of how the accident occurred.
