Construction workers using scaffolding equipment put themselves at great risk on a daily basis. A defective cherry picker or a faulty lift device can cause construction workers to fall from extreme heights. If you or your loved one was in a scaffolding accident, obtain experienced legal counsel. Injured construction workers are entitled to workers' compensation benefits for any lost wages and medical care. Yet, insurance companies are known to deny legitimate claims.
At Alan M. Cass and Associates, we have handled more than 30,000 workers' compensation claims in New York City. Our legal team knows how to help injured workers secure the benefits they are entitled to receive. When you select our law firm, we will evaluate your case to help you understand if you have a valid workers' compensation claim. Contact our NYC work injury attorneys today for a free initial consultation. We can help you secure compensation beyond a workers' compensation claim, if a third party's negligent actions caused the scaffolding accident.
Employers in New York are responsible to provide employees with workers' compensation insurance. This is a no-fault system designed to cover injured workers' lost wages and medical expenses. Injured construction workers cannot sue their employer for additional compensation. But, we can help you recover additional compensation through a personal injury claim, if a third party's negligent actions caused the construction accident.
