Scaffold accidents can be devastating for victims

Construction accidents of any sort can be particularly horrible because they usually involve heavy machinery, falls from high locations, power tools, or other factors that can make the injuries severe. When you are injured in a scaffolding accident, you have to take swift action if you plan to seek compensation.

In New York, there are special laws that govern the use of scaffolds. New York Labor Law Section 240 is more commonly known as the Scaffold Law. This law places the duty on construction site owners and contractors to ensure that scaffolding used for a job is safe and properly maintained.

The Scaffold Law is only one of the laws that must be considered if you are making a claim for compensation after a scaffolding accident. We can help you to determine what other laws might come into the picture.

Construction accident cases are often very complicated ones that must take several levels of liability into account. Not only do you have to work to decide who to hold accountable for the accident, but you also have to explore the events that led up to the accident. At The O'Connor Law Firm, we work to show that the accident caused your injuries and that you suffered a financial loss because of the accident.

If you are preparing to seek compensation for an accident at a construction site, such as one that involved a fall from a scaffold, you should work quickly to find out your rights. New York has statutes of limitations that provide strict deadlines for you to be able to seek compensation.
