On a daily basis, Construction workers climb ladders, scaffolds, roofs and other structures. Due to the fact that they are high above the ground, they are exposed to the possibility of falling or getting struck by falling objects. When workers fall from heights, or are hit by falling objects, it can result in broken bones, devastating head injuries and other serious injuries. These injuries will more than likely involve expensive medical care. Getting compensation for lost wages and medical bills is crucial for injured workers and their families.
Over the years, construction accident lawyers from Dervishi Law Group, P.C. have worked hard to get clients the maximum compensation possible for medical expenses, lost wages and other expenses related to their accident. Contact us today for assistance with your fall from height injury case.
It is very important for victims to know their rights, as well as what compensation they may be entitled to. The New York Labor Law Section 240 covers scaffolding accidents, falls from heights, excavation and demolition work. This law gives workers the chance to file suit against owners and general contractors.
Our fall from heights lawyers will take every step within the law to hold the negligent contractors, property owners or their agents, responsible for your injuries. When workers’ compensation benefits are the only remedy for you, we can help you file for those benefits.
Workers’ compensation provides benefits for workers who are injured due to falling from heights. It also provides benefits for family members when the accident results in death. However, workers’ compensation benefits are limited and may not meet financial needs following a serious injury or the death of the worker.
If the fall was caused by the negligence of another party, one may be entitle to seek additional compensation through the civil justice system.
