Queens Scaffolding Accidents Lawyers

Construction workers face dangerous working conditions on a daily basis. They often work at elevated heights using scaffolding equipment and other construction tools. When safety regulations are overlooked in the name of profit margins, construction workers are put at great risk of serious and life-threatening injuries.

If you or your loved one was in a scaffolding accident, obtain experienced legal counsel. Chiariello & Chiariello has more than 50 years of experience advocating for injured workers throughout New York City. We have the skills and legal resources to help injured workers recover compensation above and beyond a workers' compensation claim, if a third party can be held responsible for causing the accident. We also know how New York's Labor Law can be applied for additional compensation, even if a contractor or construction site owner was not at fault.

When OSHA regulations and other safety requirements are ignored, construction workers are at risk of serious injuries from scaffolding falls, such as:

  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

In New York, employers are responsible to provide workers' compensation. This is designed to cover injured workers' medical expenses and lost wages, regardless of who caused a work-related accident. However, workers' compensation is capped at certain levels and is rarely enough to help injured construction workers get back on their feet.

Seeking a Full Financial Recovery for Injured Construction Workers

At Chiariello & Chiariello, we have the skills and legal resources to help injured workers and families with fatal accident claims recover additional compensation. For example, if a subcontractor, manufacturer, or another third party can be held responsible for causing the construction accident, we will aggressively pursue a personal injury claim. This would help you obtain a full financial recovery for any past and current medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

Our construction site injury attorneys also understand how New York's Labor Law Section 240 can be applied. This allows workers injured in scaffolding and ladder accidents to file a personal injury lawsuit against their employers, even if they were not at fault. We know how to help injured workers obtain a full financial recovery as long as defective scaffolding equipment directly caused the work-related accident.
