Representing Painters With Work-Related Injuries

Painters play a vital role in completing nearly every construction project. Anytime a commercial building is built, someone will have to paint the inside of the building. In New York City, it is also very common to see painters working on bridges.

Most painters spend a substantial portion of their day working on scaffolds or ladders anywhere from a few feet off the ground to over a hundred feet above the ground. The risks associated with a fall from such a great height are obvious. Even falls from a few feet can cause serious injuries, however.

In New York, the law recognizes the many risks involved for painters and construction workers working on scaffolds and ladders, and provides special legal protection for workers who are injured while working at a height. Consequently, people who are injured in these jobs, such as painters, often have additional legal remedies besides workers' compensation.

If you are a painter and were injured in a work-related accident, it is critical to consult with knowledgeable legal counsel about your injuries.
