Many construction workers use scaffolding every day at their work site.

you have been injured in a fall from scaffolding or from collapsed scaffolding,
you should contact an experienced New York scaffolding accident lawyer

Scaffolding is an intricate system of tubes, couplers, and boards that
is fastened to a structure. Scaffolding can be used on the interior or
exterior of a building and varies in height and width. There are specific
requirements for scaffolding in order for it to be safe for the workers
that use it. There are specific height, strength, and safety requirements
that must be followed, such as toe boards and guard rails. Furthermore,
there must be an adequate foundation for the scaffolding to be built upon.

Falls from heights are the most common deadly construction accident. Construction workers
who are on scaffolding are usually doing all of their work from a high
elevation off the ground. If proper safety measures are not in place,
there is a high probability that the employee could fall off of the scaffolding.
Falls from scaffolding result in broken bones, head trauma, paralysis,
and even death. If you have been injured because of a fall from scaffolding,
we can help you learn more about your legal rights.
If scaffolding is not build with proper materials and a proper foundation,
there is a chance that it could collapse. A scaffolding collapse is extremely
dangerous because the workers who are on the scaffolding will sustain
injuries from the fall as well as injuries from being struck by scaffolding.
Collapsed scaffolding can be extremely heavy and could pin someone underneath
the scaffolding, causing serious injury or death. If you have been hurt
because scaffolding collapsed, you should contact one of the Manhattan
scaffolding accident attorneys at a New York construction accident law firm.
When scaffolding is not built properly or used properly, there is a chance
that a piece of the scaffolding or a piece of equipment on the scaffolding
could fall off and strike someone on the ground. If you were a worker
who was struck by a falling piece of scaffolding at your job site or you
were a passer-by who was injured by a falling piece of scaffolding, you
may have a claim to compensate you for your injuries. If you have been
injured by another person’s negligence in building and maintaining
scaffolding, you should speak with an experienced Brooklyn scaffolding
accident lawyer as soon as possible.
