Compensation Following A Fall From A Ladder While At Work

New York lawmakers are concerned about the safety of workers working at great heights. This means that, under The Scaffold Law, defendants face strict liability when ladder- and scaffold-related injuries occur. Employees injured in a construction accident may be entitled to financial compensation by their employer in addition to any workers' compensation for which they may be eligible.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a ladder or scaffold accident, contact us for a no-charge consultation. We recently obtained $520,000 and $650,000 awards for construction workers working at dangerous heights, and have experience in working with families adversely affected by a loved one's construction-related injuries.
