Representing Injured New Jersey Construction Workers
Construction workers are always in danger when working on or around scaffolding. Thousands of workers are hurt in the U.S. each year from falling off of scaffolding and in scaffolding collapses. If you were injured or lost a loved one in a scaffolding collapse, consult with a skilled lawyer about your legal options.
At The Law Offices of William E. Mandry, P.C., we represent injured construction workers facing mounting medical bills and lost wages, as well as grieving families who have lost loved ones in construction accidents. We have nearly 30 years of experience handling personal injury cases in New Jersey. We are dedicated to recovering the monetary resources you need to continue making ends meet after you sustain injuries in a scaffolding accident.
Scaffolding Claims, Workers' Compensation and Third-Party Liability Issues
When you suffer a scaffolding fall injury, you are most likely entitled to workers' compensation. However, additional compensation may be available if a third party caused the accident. For example, a construction firm, contractor or site foreman may have violated safety rules. The scaffolding may have been designed or manufactured defectively. Led by Phillipsburg scaffolding accident attorney William Mandry, we will uncover all possible sources of compensation.
Factors Contributing to a Scaffolding Injury
On a construction site, danger potentially exists around every corner. However, those who work on scaffolds are at a much higher risk of suffering a debilitating injury than other workers.
Many factors can lead to a serious scaffolding injury, including:
- A poorly or improperly constructed scaffold
- Defective scaffolding parts or design
- Failure of support mechanisms or collapses
- Slippery scaffolding surfaces
- A lack of safety training
- Failure to use proper safety equipment
As your legal representatives, we carefully examine the details of your scaffolding injury and how it occurred. We look to hold negligent parties, including site owners, general contractors and equipment manufacturers, responsible for their negligent actions.
