New York Scaffold Law

Given the serious nature of scaffolding and ladder injuries, it is important to maximize your compensation. There are several sources of recovery. First, Sections 240(1) and 241(6) of New York’s Labor Law, commonly referred to as the Scaffold Law, offer protections that are separate and in addition to workers’ compensation benefits. In addition, property owners or other third parties may be liable if their negligence contributed to an accident.

Scaffold And Ladder Injuries – Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Our law firm understands the importance of seeking workers’ compensation benefits that are appropriate for the severity of scaffolding and ladder injuries. Notably, the legal determination of maximum medical improvement is generally not required until two years after the accident. During that time, we want our clients to receive all the medical treatments and therapies they need. Our stance is often at odds with insurance carriers, who seek the most economical solutions.

We Keep Fighting For You If You Have Permanent Impairments

If you have a permanent partial or total disability after two years, our law firm will continue to represent you. We can seek schedule loss of use or non-schedule awards on your behalf. We may also seek Social Security Disability benefits, where appropriate. When you come to our law firm, we fight to protect all of your rights.
