Window washer suffers serious head injury in fall

A window washer is in the hospital with a serious head injury after he fell about three stories. The man was working in Manhattan at the time of the accident, and reports indicate that he was actually working on the 19th floor of the building. As such, this could easily have been a fatal accident. His life was saved, though, when he landed on a scaffold after the three-story fall.

When you are injured in a scaffolding accident, you have to take swift action if you plan to seek compensation.
