Construction Accident Attorney Protecting the Injured in Wappingers Falls and Poughkeepsie
Falling off a building roof or wall is every construction worker’s nightmare. Every year, more than 10 percent of all building professionals will suffer an injury on the job that requires time off of work for medical care. Falls from roofs, walls, ladders and scaffolds are one of the leading types of accidents. Section 240 of the New York workplace safety code is known as the ‘Scaffolding Law’ because of the high number of injures directly related to falls on the building job site.
If you were injured in a construction site fall from a roof or wall, or lost a loved one in a construction site fall, talk to an attorney on the construction accident litigation firm of Stenger, Diamond & Glass LLP. We take your case beyond workers’ compensation. Under provisions of Section 240 and Section 59 of the Workplace Injury Code, property owners, general contractors and subcontractors may be held liable for paying you additional money damages, if it can be shown that there were violations of specific safety requirements on the job site. We work with construction industry experts to reconstruct the accident and investigate the evidence that will help us build the strongest third-party lawsuit for a settlement or trial.
