The use of scaffolding on a construction site must be carefully supervised – particularly since improper installation could result in the serious injury of the builders working on it. Personal injury cases involving scaffolding accidents have included fractures resulting from the collapse of a scaffold structure, as well as serious and disabling brain injuries. Larry the Lawyer can handle these law suits for you in Long Island, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and anywhere else in New York.
Working with scaffolding is high-risk, for many reasons. For example, incorrectly installed scaffolding or defective components of the structure pose a higher chance of serious injury to workers. Other dangers include inadequate training, the misuse of a scaffold, and inadequate safety equipment in the event of the structure collapsing.
