Helping You Recover After A Scaffolding Accident
When you are working with scaffolding, the smallest mistake can cause serious accidents and lead to major injuries. While workers’ compensation will cover your medical benefits, you may be eligible for further compensation by filing a personal injury claim after your scaffolding accident.
At the law offices of MetroLaw.Com, we have been protecting workers injured in construction accidents for over 30 years. From high-level slip and falls to dangerous equipment collapses, we can make sure you get the full extent of benefits you deserve. We have an office in Newark and an office in New York for your convenience.
How Laws Differ From State To State
In the state of New York, there is strict liability against the scaffold company for all accident injuries. This means that you do not have to prove how the accident occurred in order to receive fair compensation. If you have been injured in a scaffolding accident in New York, do not hesitate to take action today.
The laws are different in New Jersey. There is no strict liability, so workers face a more uphill battle in New Jersey state courts. However, our attorneys will work with investigative experts to understand what caused your scaffolding accident, whether it was weak planking or bad rigging.
We Will Help You Through Your Challenges
Scaffolding accidents almost always lead to serious injuries or death. If you or someone you love has suffered a catastrophic injury, we can help your family through this difficult time and make sure you get the medical care you need from the start. We also handle wrongful death claims for families that have lost a loved one.
In addition to our weekly business hours, we offer weekend and evening hours by appointment. Spanish and Portuguese translation services are available in the office. Contact us online, or call our lawyers at 800-469-6476 today for a free initial consultation.
