One of the most physically tasking jobs is construction work. Everybody knows it, yet somehow, our construction workers go undervalued. Not at the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny. If you are someone who has recently been injured in a scaffolding accident, or a construction accident of any kind, you need an attorney who can advocate for your best interests through every step of the claims process ahead. We are proud to represent you. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced New York City personal injury attorneys to learn more about scaffolding accidents and what we can do for you. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are the most common causes of scaffolding accidents?
OSHA guidelines are in place so that construction sites and other working environments are safe for all. When these guidelines are violated, these places can become very unsafe, and scaffolds are certainly no exception. Scaffolding accidents are most frequently caused by defective fall safety systems, being improperly secured, being negligently manufactured or designed, and more. If you have been wrongly injured in a scaffolding accident, there is a very good chance you will qualify for compensation.
Can I sue if I am injured in an NYC scaffolding accident?
If you have been injured in a scaffolding accident or another type of construction accident, you will have to hire an experienced attorney who can gather and present enough evidence to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Some of the most useful forms of evidence include pictures of the unsafe conditions, the defective scaffold itself, surveillance footage of the accident as it happened, medical documents, witness statements, and more.
How long can I wait to sue for a construction site injury in New York State?
Under most circumstances, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is three years, meaning that you will, generally, have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party responsible. Our firm has helped the wrongly injured for years, and we are ready to do the same for you. If you have been injured and need a team of legal professionals to swiftly guide you through the claims process, look no further–we are here.
