Scaffolding, Scaffolding Accidents and Scaffolding Lawyers

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Scaffolding is abundant in New York due to all of the skyscrapers.  As such, there are many scaffolding accidents on construction sites.  New York lawyers handling construction accidents are particularly atuned to the frequency of scaffolding related accident injuries.

Workers that sustain injuries while on New York scaffolding usually sustain catastrophic injuries.  There are many ways a New York construction worker, or anyone for that matter, can get injured on a scaffolding.  The scaffolding can collapse, break or be installed or repaired negligently.  Other frequent injuries involving scaffolding can be simply from the worker slipping, tripping or falling from the scaffold.

The result of a New York scaffolding accident typcially involves catastrophic injuries for the construction worker.  The types of injuries include spinal cord injuries, fracture or broken bones, paralysis or even death. 

It is critical that the OSHA safety regulations, New York workers compensation and labor laws are abided by.  Many times an injured construction worker in New York needs the help of a seasoned scaffolding accident lawyer to advise him on the benefits he is entitled via workers compensation, the union and other labor laws of our great city.

Choosing an experienced labor law lawyer and scaffolding accident lawyer is vital.  Many times an injured accident worker is out of work due to his injuries for an extended period of time.  His ability to provide for his family is challenged.  That is where we come in.  If you or a loved one was injured in a scaffolding accident call the Scaffolding Accident Lawyers at 1(800)WE-FIGHT

Construction Accident: Window Washer Hires Lawyers. New York Lawyers, Attorneys, Attorneys

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

The inherent danger of construction work consequently brings attention to the frequent misdeeds of the wealthy development and construction companies that try to save money by ignoring safety laws.  The case below is just another example of the necessity of personal injury lawyers to level the playing field and keep these despicable companies from putting the workers who drive our economy in harms way.

After surviving a 47-story fall, a Manhattan window washer has filed suit against the companies responsible for the scaffolding that gave way and caused the accident.

Mr. Moreno is truly blessed that he survived a 47 floor fall.  His brother wasn’t so lucky.  In addition to obtaining the money he needs to survive from the egregious injuries he has sustained he has a duty to sue the company responsible on behalf of his brother and all others who may be put in harms way in the future by the alleged careless and negligent actions of the company.  Besides giving the injured party economic and non-economic monetary awards, a personal injury lawsuit is vital in keeping the negligent party from ever acting negligent again or forcing them to put measures in place to prevent accidents.

In December, Alcides Moreno, 37, and his brother, Edgar, attempted to access an East 66th Street building’s window washing scaffold. When the scaffolding gave way, both brothers fell 47 stories to the plaza below.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages, but claims that the recklessness and negligence demonstrated by the companies responsible for the management and construction of the scaffolding was the major contributing factor to the accident. Currently, the management company’s insurance company is looking into the suit.

Labor law cases are very complex and one should choose a lawyer that is experienced in these types of cases.  Contact us for a free consultation today or call us at 1(800)WE-FIGHT.

Edgar was pronounced dead at the scene. Alcides survived and is undergoing treatment at a physical rehabilitation center.

Physical rehabilitation is a long and arduous road.  Our prayers and blessings go out to Alcides who survived this horrific accident and his family for their loss.
