NEW JERSEY SCAFFOLDING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
Working to Help You Recover from Serious Injury
It is unfortunate that scaffolding accidents occur frequently on a job site. 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.
Construction workers, window washers, roofers, and painters are risk of these falls causing:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Permanent disability
- Wrongful death

Compensation for Scaffolding Accident Victims
New Jersey law provides that your medical bills are paid by your employer’s workers compensation insurance company. Additionally, you are entitled to receive a portion of your wages when injured at work and unable to continue working. Our firm will pursue all available benefits on your behalf, including the medical treatment you need in order to fully recover.
Our attorneys from The Law Offices of Lloyd E. Bennett, Esq., P.C. have extensive skill and knowledge in the law relating to workers’ compensation and can advise you regarding not only benefits, but possibly pursuing a third party claim. This would be applicable if your accident was caused by another party other than your employer, who was negligent in the maintenance, construction, or use of the scaffolding.
