Attorneys from our firm — Hofmann & Schweitzer — have been helping victims of scaffold fall injuries and other construction accident injuries since 1977. In that time, we have created a remarkable track record of success and a reputation for exceptional client care throughout the five boroughs of New York City.
Causes Of Scaffolding Accidents
We handle claims involving serious injuries and wrongful death resulting from:
- Faulty scaffolding: In many cases, the scaffold itself is at fault in these accidents. When this happens, we can bring third-party liability claims against the scaffold manufacturer.
- Negligent supervisors: Under New York Labor Law 240, general contractors are liable for gravity-related accidents under their supervision. We can bring a Labor Law 240 claim to maximize your compensation award.
- General accidents: Some accidents are simply accidents, and no one is apparently at fault. While many of our clients come to us thinking they do not have a claim, our lawyers have decades of experience uncovering viable claims from accidents where it seems that no one is at fault.
Even if you don't think you have a case, if you have been injured or lost a loved one in a scaffold accident, talk with a lawyer from our firm today. We will do in-depth research and give you an honest, accurate assessment of your case and fight to help you obtain the compensation you need.
