What Happens If I’m Injured Falling From Scaffolding

  • Many people who work at construction sites get seriously injured when the fall from a scaffold.
  • Usually scaffolds are erected by workers on the jobsite and often times it may not be the best type of a scaffolding.
  • If they fall from the scaffolding, it is irrelevant that they may have helped to erect the scaffold unless they did something that solely caused the accident.
  • If you are not the sole reason for the accident, the labor law of the State of New York will protect the worker and those are the types of cases I often handle.
