Scaffolding Accident Attorneys
Scaffolding accidents are a common construction injury and are often due to negligence and improper maintenance of a construction site. In fact, 25% of deadly falls in New York happen off of scaffolding.
Fortunately, the New York scaffolding law (section 240) was written to protect workers against injuries caused by elevated falls, which generally stem from scaffolding accidents.
The scaffolding law initiates a “third-party responsibility for failing to furnish appropriate or non-defective safety devices to guard against risk. Third-party liability also extends to the project owner or general contractor who failed to provide proper safeguards.”
These scaffolding accidents include falling workers, falling objects, and scaffolding accidents from demolition, altering, or even repairing objects.
