Ladder Accidents At Construction Site
All workers deserve compensation following serious workplace injuries. Unfortunately, laws do not always fully support workers’ bids for financial support.
A notable exception is made for construction workers injured in scaffolding collapses and ladder accidents. Under Section 240 of New York’s Labor Law, many parties, including contractors and subcontractors, are held to strict liability for injuries caused by unsafe scaffolding and ladders.
Did a ladder collapse under you or on top of you at a construction site? Did a ladder fall over, causing serious harm? Contact the Queens law firm of Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP.
A great deal of case law has developed around Section 240 over the years. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we have a comprehensive understanding of Section 240 and have handled many ladder injury cases. Our knowledge and experience means we can develop compelling cases that accurately document your injuries and the compensation you need and deserve.
You May Be Entitled To Additional Compensation
Workers’ compensation is designed to provide fast compensation to pay for medical expenses and lost wages. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation laws also bar workers from receiving additional compensation from employers.
Fortunately, compensation can be pursued from other responsible third parties, like contractors and subcontractors. Our firm has successfully recovered compensation for clients in hundreds of third-party claims. We can analyze your claim and represent you in your third-party claim while referring you to an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.
