Scaffolding Accidents And What You Can Do
With all of the construction often being done on new buildings, renovations and other projects, scaffolding is necessary for construction workers to do their jobs. Unfortunately, working on scaffolds can be quite dangerous, with falls or scaffolding collapses resulting in serious injuries or death.
New York’s lawmakers understand the unique nature of construction work and have enacted special legal protection for people working on scaffolding. We can help you protect your rights and secure compensation under the law.
