Crane And Scaffolding Accidents

Skilled Representation For Crane And Scaffolding Accident Injuries

Cranes, scaffolding and ladders present significant hazards for construction workers at sites throughout New York and New Jersey. Section 200 of the New York State Labor Law codifies strict guidelines for general contractors, crane and scaffolding companies, as well as others involved in supervising and managing construction projects to help ensure worker safety.

Unfortunately, crane and scaffolding accidents are far too common. Improper safety measures at a construction site can lead to complex legal battles concerning negligence and liability. If you or a loved one has suffered serious or fatal injuries in a construction accident, it is vital for you to work with a skilled litigator who knows how to fight to protect your rights.

Common types of hoist and crane accidents involve:

  • Crane collapse
  • Electrocutions caused by a crane making contact with power lines
  • Unstable, improper and dropped loads
  • Crushing accidents involving counter weights
  • Improper crane assembly
  • Improper training of crane operators
  • Objects striking workers or other individuals while being hoisted
  • Injuries to bystanders or passersby to a construction site
  • Maximizing Compensation In Scaffolding Accidents

Cranes are used frequently throughout the construction industry. However, scaffolds, ladders and working at any height can lead to a gravity-related accident. New York Labor Law 240, frequently referred to as the “Scaffold Law,” protects workers who suffer injuries in a fall from a height, or in a gravity-related accident involving falling objects. The Scaffold Law is not limited to injuries suffered in a scaffold collapse. Project managers, general contractors, property owners, scaffolding company owners and others may be held responsible for injuries in a gravity-related accident. We thoroughly investigate every detail to hold all parties accountable and obtain maximum results for our clients.
