I fell from a scaffolding while on the job. Can I sue?
One of the most important laws that the state of New York has to protect construction workers on job sites is a law that protects workers that fall from heights, whether that be a scaffold, a sidewalk bridge, a ladder, a platform. It’s the job of the owner of the building and of the general contractor to make sure that the workers that are working at heights have all the full protection that they need in order to protect them from falling off of a scaffold or off a ladder, off of a sidewalk bridge. If you fell from a ladder or scaffold or a sidewalk bridge, they did not give you the protection that they needed to in order to protect you and you can sue because of that. You should give us a call so that we can answer any questions that you may have regarding your specific case.
