New York City Scaffold Accident Lawyer
14 Wall Street 20th Floor
New York, New York 10005
A majority of construction workers utilize scaffolding on a regular basis.
Additionally, workers in other industries rely on scaffolding as well.
Unfortunately, each year in New York, hundreds of people are injured or
killed in scaffold accidents. In most cases, these individuals are injured
or killed because of the negligence of someone else. A New York Scaffold
accident lawyer from The Doan Law Firm, at (646) 847-0000, can discuss
your legal rights and interests after this type of incident.
A New York scaffold accident lawyer from our firm can provide you detailed
information about insurance claims and lawsuits for injuries associated
with a scaffolding mishap. Scaffold accidents tend to fall into two broad
categories. These are accidents that injure workers and accidents that
injure passersby or some other third party not part of the project involving
the use of scaffolding.
There are a number of common types of scaffold accidents. These include:
- scaffold plank giving way
- scaffold support giving way
- slip and fall
- struck by falling object
Optimizing Compensation in a New York Scaffold Accident Case
A skilled, tenacious New York scaffold accident lawyer from our law firm
will fight to obtain the compensation you deserve in your case. The financial
recovery you may be entitled to in your case depends on the facts and
circumstances surrounding the accident coupled with the nature and extent
of your injuries. With that said, there are certain types of injuries,
damages, and losses for which an attorney from our firm typically seeks
on behalf of a client injured in a scaffolding accident. These are:
- medical bills and expenses
- pain and suffering
- mental anguish and emotional distress
- permanent disability
- permanent disfigurement
- lost wages
A New York scaffold accident lawyer from our firm will fight to ensure
you obtain comprehensive compensation. This includes not only money for
your existing losses, but also for those you reasonably can be expected
to face in the future.
Your scaffold accident may have resulted in significant injuries. As a
result, you face the prospect of ongoing medical care and treatment, including
the possibility of prolonged physical and occupational therapy. In addition,
your injuries may have resulted in chronic pain that may not dissipate
any time soon, if ever.
You may not be able to return to work in the near future. Indeed, you may
never be able to return to the job you had before the accident. All of
these represent the types of future losses for which our legal team seeks
compensation for a client like you.
You may also be entitled to what technically are known as punitive or compensatory
damages. This is additional compensation awarded in some cases. Punitive
damages are not always available. There must be a demonstration that the
conduct of the party or parties that caused the accident was particularly
reckless or egregious.
