Scaffolding Accidents

New Jersey Workers' Compensation Attorney

It is unfortunate that scaffolding accidents occur frequently on a jobsite. Not only have injuries proven to be catastrophic in some instances, but numerous fatalities have occurred in recent years as a result of falls from scaffolding. The cause of these accidents is often due to the planking giving way or the structure not being put together properly, resulting in collapse. Accidents can also occur from a falling object or from the scaffolding being disturbed and thrown about by wind or other equipment, resulting in impacts to the workers or falls.

Many types of work related occupations employ scaffolding in the workplace, such as construction sites, window washers, roofers and painters. A scaffolding accident can result in a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury or paralysis which may result in permanent disability. If your or a loved one has been injured in a scaffolding accident at work, contact a New Jersey workers' compensation lawyer to discuss your legal options.

Compensation for Scaffolding Accident Victims

New Jersey law provides that your medical bills are paid by your employer's workers compensation insurance company and you are entitled to receive a portion of your wages, when injured at work and unable to continue working.

Our attorneys from The Law Offices of Lloyd E.
