Workers' Compensation and Third-Party Liability
We handle workers' compensation claims in a timely manner to protect our clients' rights to full benefits after a construction accident involving scaffolding. At the same time, we leverage the provisions of scaffolding-related labor laws to secure monetary relief for construction workers who have put their lives at risk in a construction capacity.
A third party, such as a landowner, a contractor or subcontractor, or a building supervisor, may be liable. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a scaffolding accident in New York or New Jersey, it is important to have a knowledgeable construction law attorney investigate as soon as possible. Did construction site supervisors comply with OSHA regulations regarding scaffolding design, construction, inspection and use?
