Scaffold And Ladder Accidents

Scaffold and Ladder Accidents Attorneys in New York City

Construction sites are dangerous areas and present many ways workers can get hurt if certain precautions are not observed. In fact, being a construction worker has been recognized as one of the top 10 most dangerous professions in the U.S., with a fatality rate of 26.8 deaths per 100,000 workers. More than 65 percent of the construction industry, amounting to 2.3 million workers, work on scaffolds or ladders on a regular basis. More incredible is the fact that approximately 700 people lose their life because of a fall accident and another 225,550 more suffer serious or catastrophic injury on an annual basis.

Unfortunately, many construction accidents are caused by negligent and reckless employers who knowingly choose to violate OSHA workplace safety regulations, New York’s Labor laws, and the Industrial codes. Often, their negligence and recklessness is motivated by a desire to save money. Safety is too often not a priority and subject’s the worker to an unreasonable risk of harm. Not only does putting profit before the safety of workers result in serious and needless harm, but this unethical and otherwise unlawful behavior can also result in the employer being held financially responsible for any accidents caused by their disregard for safety.

Fall Injuries Caused by Unsafe or Defective Scaffolding/Ladders

Sadly, ladder and scaffolding accidents are a regular occurrence on Long Island and New York City. They can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Damaged or missing guard rails
  • Damaged locking pins, motors, or brackets
  • Ladders with defective feet or broken rungs
  • Baker scaffold collapse
  •  Improper securing of scaffolds or ladders
  • Hoist, support devices or safety harness failures
  • Failure to provide workers with adequate safety equipment and/or training
  • Failure to perform adequate and timely safety inspections
Because no two cases are alike, you need to speak with an attorney at Constantinidis & Associates, P.C.  who is prepared to fully investigate your case to determine what factors may have contributed to your accident.
