Did you know that an estimated two million Americans work on scaffolding for a living?

As one might expect, working on scaffolding is one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. If your job requires you to work on scaffolding, your chances of suffering a severe accident are relatively high. If you or a loved one have been injured in a scaffolding accident in the Queens area, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and more. Contact Shulman & Hill for a free, no-obligation legal consultation.

Queens Scaffolding Accidents: What You Need to Know

One of the worst workplace accidents imaginable is an on-the-job scaffolding accident. These falls can result in lifelong pain, lost wages, or even death. New York has many laws related to scaffolding that require property owners and general contractors to look out for the well-being of their workers. These laws also strongly articulate requirements for equipment, protective gear, and safety training.

You may have done everything right but still suffered a severe injury. After seeking medical attention, you should reach out to professionals who understand the complexities and requirements of the New York Scaffold Law. An experienced attorney will know how to help you navigate the legal process successfully.

Shulman & Hill has a group of dedicated New York scaffolding accident lawyers who can help you pursue compensation for your losses. We are in the business of fighting to make wrongs right and we never lose sight of the reason why we are working so hard: you.

How Queens Scaffolding Accidents Can Affect You

Scaffolding accidents can be traumatic and result in devastating injuries that can impair your health, drain your bank account, and, ultimately, lead to immense stress. An accident like this should not be taken lightly.

Scaffolding accidents often cause falls from great heights. These falls can result in many kinds of serious injuries, including brain injury, broken bones, and spinal cord damage. If a third party’s negligence contributed to your accident, they may be held financially responsible for your injuries. Lawsuits are most commonly filed against negligent property owners, general contractors, and subcontractors.

Regardless of the party at fault, most workers are also eligible for workers’ compensation benefits to help with their medical costs and lost wages.

Navigating the Complexities of New York Scaffold Law

Although you may wish to face your case head-on without help from a lawyer, the New York Scaffold Law can be very specific and tricky to navigate. If at all possible, we advise that you refrain from handling your case alone. We offer free legal consultations at Shulman & Hill, and if you hire us, you will only pay for our services if you win.

Too few Queens attorneys spend the time and effort needed to understand the impact an injury can have on a victim and their family. Not only does Shulman & Hill understand how to navigate the intricate details of the New York Scaffold Law, but we also have your long-term well-being in mind. In fact, we can help you throughout the duration of your case by:

Conducting an Investigation

Fortunately, the law is intended to favor injured parties in the event of an accident. However, some insurance companies choose to employ tactics that can delegitimize your pursuit of fair compensation.

Shulman & Hill can initiate an investigation to support your claim. In these investigations, we can identify any potentially liable parties, collect witness testimonies and contact information, review surveillance footage if applicable, and speak with experts regarding how your accident may have occurred and the severity of your injuries.

If an insurer tries to deny your claim, you could run the risk of a long legal battle. This is among the most important reasons to seek representation from a Queens scaffolding attorney. Our experts can thoroughly and carefully investigate your accident to help prove your side of the story and show why you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Pursuing Compensation

This is likely your first time filing a claim after being injured in a Queens scaffolding accident. As a result, you may not be aware of which losses you may be entitled to compensation for.

Determining whether or not a settlement offer is fair can be difficult without the proper training and expertise. Our personal injury lawyers in Queens are qualified to review the details of your case and can identify all the potential losses you may be able to recover compensation for. In addition to medical expenses and lost wages, a personal injury lawsuit can help recover compensation for pain and suffering.

Handling Correspondence With an Insurance Company

To increase your chances of receiving any compensation you may be entitled to, you may want to consider legal representation. Like most businesses, some insurance companies view their bottom line as a top priority. These companies may try to capitalize on a victim who is self-represented.

An insurance company may offer you money for basic damages like medical bills. However, they may not have your long-term care in mind. Although medical bills can be a nice start, you may also need to seek damages for temporary (or even permanent) loss of wages or ongoing medical treatment, like physical therapy.

A proven track record of success is a very important quality to look for when choosing a workers’ compensation and personal injury law firm in Queens. Fortunately, that is exactly what you will find at Shulman & Hill.
