Understand All Your Options

Many scaffold accidents in Brooklyn can be attributed to safety violations and negligence. Liable parties will do whatever it takes to protect their interests and financial stability.

If you are undocumented or working “off the books,” your employer still owes you a duty of care. Construction employers may try to exploit people with no visa or working papers. Don’t let them. Some construction sites refuse to provide Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) or any safety equipment at all because their workers are undocumented.

Your accident has nothing to do with your legal status in the country. Don’t let a boss or employer intimidate or bully you into thinking otherwise. If you’ve been misled to believe you cannot take legal action or have limited options, you should speak with an expert scaffold accident lawyer in Brooklyn today.

Contact The Law Offices of Eric Richman 24/7, 365 days a year, to discuss your case. In the meantime, we’ve listed common questions from scaffold accident victims below for further consideration.

Since every case is unique, consider working with a lawyer to get advice on your specific situation.

  • What Are The Common Causes of Scaffold Accidents?

    There are several common causes of scaffold accidents in New York City. Many accidents can be attributed to safety violations, negligence, and defective equipment. These include:

    • Inadequate fall protection
    • Faulty scaffold assembly or design
    • Faulty materials
    • Improper training
    • Exposed spills
    • Inadequate supervision or training
    • Non-compliance with safety standards

    These above causes can lead to sudden injuries and death. Identifying the exact cause of a scaffold accident and determining liable parties will require a professional evaluation.

  • Who Can Be Held Liable for My Scaffold Accident?

    Liability for a scaffold accident can extend beyond your employer to construction companies, site owners, equipment manufacturers, general contractors, vendors, and even government establishments. Establishing liability will require a professional investigation of the accident and a legal evaluation of all details.

  • Can I File a Personal Injury Lawsuit If I’ve Been Hurt on the Job?

    Yes, you may have been misled to believe that you have no legal options if you’ve been injured on the job. Don’t believe it. You may have the right to seek financial damages from involved third parties. Contact The Law Offices of Eric Richman to ensure those responsible are held accountable.

  • What Kind of Compensation Can I Claim?

    The extent of your injuries generally determines compensation. You may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other damages caused by your accident.

  • What Is the Settlement Amount for a Scaffolding Accident?

    There is no way to determine a settlement amount from general information online. Further, there is no way to provide an exact settlement amount at the start of a case. Every case varies and there are several unknowns when they begin. Many lawyers will promise lofty settlement amounts at initial sign-up. Our law office strives to set realistic expectations with our clients. If you’re concerned about liability and compensation, contact us today.
