Workplace Injuries – Falls and Scaffold Accidents

Workers that construct tall buildings subject themselves to perilous height-related dangers. Under New York laws, general contractors and employers are required to provide employees with vital safety equipment such as harnesses, safe ladders, and scaffolds. If you’ve been injured as a result of the failure to provided with proper safety equipment, call us at 716-427-6899 and speak with a construction accident lawyer. We proudly serve clients in Cheektowaga, Niagara Falls and the rest of the Buffalo area. 

Because height poses such a basic danger and falls are common, New York’s Labor Law Section 240(1) was written to specifically protects workers at risk of falling from a height during the course of a construction job. When a scaffold collapses or a harness fails, an injured worker is eligible to recover compensation in addition to basic worker's compensation benefits. Workers are eligible for benefits for pain and suffering, medical bills and wage loss.
