Getting Compensation For A Ladder Fall In New York

Falls from ladders, scaffolding and other heights are among the most common of many risks faced by construction workers. Even longstanding, highly safety-conscious workers fall and suffer serious or catastrophic injuries due to a wide range of causes ranging from faulty equipment to errors in judgment by others on the site.

New York state law contains very strong protections for construction workers, with many specific statutes addressing mandatory safety requirements for work performed at elevation. It is very important for seriously injured fall victims and their families to recognize that many situations allow recovery of damages beyond the benefits provided by workers’ compensation insurance alone.

Was The Building Owner, General Contractor Or Other Party Negligent?

At Kammholz Rossi PLLC, legal advocacy for injured construction workers in actions against building owners, general contractors and others who breach safety laws is a clear focus. Our proven Rochester construction accident lawyers are prepared to investigate what happened and take decisive action for you after accidents such as:

  • A fall from a defective ladder or a ladder unsuitable for the specific job
  • A fall caused by improper placement of a ladder on an uneven surface, on top of debris or without proper stabilization
  • A scaffolding collapse due to improper assembly, structural defects or overloading, among other potential causes
  • A fall from scaffolding due to the lack of guardrails or failures in other safety precautions
  • Any injury-causing or fatal construction accident caused by use of the wrong elevation structure or device for the job — such as the use of a ladder where scaffolding is required

Put Our Legal Knowledge And Determination To Work For Your Future

These are just a few examples of falls and other accidents that may justify a lawsuit against someone other than your employer. Our attorneys know from extensive relevant experience representing upstate New York construction workers that the challenges they face due to inability to work can be personally and financially overwhelming.

If you have suffered a serious or disabling injury in a fall on a construction site, the law may well be on your side. To put experienced, assertive lawyers on your side, too, call or email our firm now for a free, no-risk case evaluation.

I cannot thank Brad and the entire Kammholz Rossi team enough. I am so glad that I made the decision to have Brad represent me. I received an injury at work that would be a life changing event for me and my family. I needed to find an attorney that would look out for me and my family. After meeting with a few law firms I chose Brad and his firm. Brad was truly concerned with my injury and what was best for me and my family. Too many of the law firms I met with were only concerned with what they could get from a settlement. Brad is truly concerned with what is best for you. He will listen to all of your thoughts and concerns, and advise you on what actions would be best. Trust is a very important part of a relationship in a legal action. I trusted Brad and his firm. I always knew that Brad truly was looking out for what was best for me and my family. You will not regret having Brad and his entire firm represent you. Everyone there is very pleasant, friendly, casual and yet professional. Their approach helps reduce the stress and tension that comes with a bad situation. Over the twenty two months that Brad represented me, we developed a friendship. I consider Brad a friend and look forward to continuing that friendship for a long time. On behalf of me and my family we cannot thank-you enough for everything that you and your firm have done for us. Truly the best decision made in a bad situation.
