Slip and Fall on Ice
NYC Labor Law 240 Attorney
If you are involved in a scaffolding accident, it is important to consult an injury attorney as soon as possible to help ensure that you obtain full and fair compensation for your expenses, damages and losses. At Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP, Attorneys at Law, our lawyers have been helping the injured for more than 25 years. We know how to analyze your case and will advise you about the approach that we believe will maximize your recovery.
In addition to workers’ compensation, which provides benefits to injured workers, you may be entitled to bring a third-party injury lawsuit against owners, general contractors or others responsible. Oftentimes, those lawsuits are based upon a violation of New York Labor Law 240(1). This law makes property owners and general contractors liable for any type of fall, including those from scaffolding and ladders. It also provides compensation for accidents caused by falling debris, construction materials and tools.
Manhattan Scaffold Injury Law Firm
Our lawyers have represented clients practicing a variety of trades in scaffolding injury cases, including carpenters, window washers, painters, electricians, heavy equipment operators, crane operators and many others. In addition to filing injury claims, our law firm undertakes wrongful death cases in pursuit of compensation for family members after the death of their loved ones in falls and in scaffolding accidents.
Because there are several ways to obtain an award or settlement after this type of accident, do not assume that you are not covered by one of these laws. Our principal attorneys have been handling your type of case for many years and can advise you about the best way to recover the compensation you need and deserve after a scaffolding injury.
