Queens Scaffolding Accidents Lawyers

Working high above the ground presents significant dangers to workers. New York's scaffold law, Labor Law Sec. 240, protects workers at elevated heights. This special liability provision to personal injury law allows people who have been injured in falls in the workplace to receive financial compensation in addition to workers' compensation benefits.

Have you suffered a high elevation injury? Were you involved in a construction accident that involved a fall from scaffolding, a ladder, a harness, or other equipment intended to support your weight above the ground? Please contact the personal injury attorneys of Chiariello & Chiariello in Forest Hills, New York, today.

Winning Damages in Addition to Workers' Comp

Many victims of workplace falls don't know about New York's scaffold law. They mistakenly believe that they can only receive workers' compensation for a construction accident involving a fall. Workers' comp will not compensate you for the pain and suffering you have endured. A successful personal injury claim under New York's Labor Law will.

Our attorneys have years of experience helping hard working New Yorkers receive additional compensation for their injuries, lost work time, medical bills, and pain and suffering. If we can prove that your injury occurred while you were performing your work duties, and that negligence was involved, you can win financial compensation. Was a plank or tread grate removed from the scaffolding and you fell to the ground? Were the construction stilts or the harness inadequate to hold you? Was your fall caused because no one was holding the base of the ladder? We can help.

We represent scaffold/ladder and construction site injury clients on a contingency basis. You will pay no attorneys fees unless we win your case.*
