Bronx Defective or Missing Scaffold Accident Lawyer
Most construction workers are "can-do" individuals focused on getting the work done even when equipment provided is not ideal for the job. In order to get to a high spot, they may stand on a bucket, stack of materials or some other makeshift temporary platform. Unfortunately, many serious accidents occur due to the use of these temporary platforms rather than ladders, scaffolding or other equipment for working safely at heights.
If you have suffered serious injury in a fall on a construction site, we urge you to contact our law firm for a focused, thorough assessment of your options for recovering financial compensation. Please do not assume that the accident was your own fault or that workers' compensation benefits are all you can receive.

- Falls from boilers or other fixtures not designed to be stood upon
