Scaffolding Accidents

Warren, Somerset and Hunterdon County Scaffolding Accident Lawyer

Construction workers often have to use scaffolding in order to perform their work. When a worker falls from scaffolding, or when scaffolding collapses, it can cause them life-altering injuries, such as head injuries, spinal cord injuries and broken bones. New Jersey has special laws that are designed to protect workers who are injured while on scaffolds to help them pay for medical bills, lost earnings, pain and suffering and other expenses. Those laws requires owners of buildings and general contractors to provide proper safety protection for all on site workers.

At the Murgatroyd Law Group , we help victims of scaffolding accidents and other construction injuries. If you were hurt on the job, it is critical to report your injury to your employer immediately and then consult with a knowledgeable New Jersey personal injury attorney.

Construction Ladder Falls in the Flemington, Clinton and Washington Areas

As a construction worker, you know that any fall from a ladder can result in injuries to the back, spinal cord, head and other areas of the body. Often, these injuries can require extensive medical treatment, especially when ladder falls happen at large heights. It can be challenging for you and your family to pay for medical bills and other expenses while you are unable to return to the job.

When a construction worker is hurt from falling off a ladder, there are usually multiple claims available to recover. There is a workers' compensation claim for injuries incurred in the course and scope of employment as well as the potential for a personal injury claim against third parties in the event the ladder was defective or failed to meet the required standards. Whether you are an iron worker, window cleaner or any type of construction worker, we have the experience required to build a strong case for you.

You may be entitled to have your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering compensated by the negligent parties involved in your construction accident.
