Hackensack Scaffolding Accident Lawyers

Paramus Ladder Injury Attorneys

Working in elevated places using ladders and scaffolding is a necessary but dangerous part of a construction worker’s job. Every year hundreds of New Jersey workers are injured in incidents involving falls and collapses of ladders and scaffolding at job sites. If you suffered injuries in this type of accident, seek the advice of an experienced injury lawyer.

At The Epstein Law Firm, we have decades of experience representing injured people in Bergen County, Essex County and throughout New Jersey. Over the years we have successfully represented many injured construction workers as well as grieving families who have lost loved ones in construction accidents. Whether you suffered a neck injury, spinal cord injury, broken bones or any other injury in a scaffolding accident, we will vigorously pursue the compensation you need to get through this period in your life.

Scaffolding Accidents, Ladder Falls and Third-Party Liability

As Bergen County construction accident lawyers, we investigate each claim to uncover who bears responsibility for the injuries. Scaffolding and ladders are sometimes manufactured or designed defectively, in which case we seek to hold the appropriate company liable. In other situations, a site supervisor or subcontractor violates safety rules, leading to accidents. If it turns out that your injury was caused by such a third party (anyone other than your own employer or a co-worker), we will help you pursue not only workers’ compensation, but additional compensation through a personal injury lawsuit as well.

We encourage you to reach out to our New Jersey lawyers if you were injured in any residential or commercial scaffolding or ladder accident. Examples of things we look for include:

  • Scaffoldings erected without proper railings or anchors
  • Lack of fall protection
  • Defects in the decking of a scaffolding
  • Inadequate anchoring
  • Use of ladders that were not rated for the task
  • Lack of adequate safety warnings

New Jersey scaffolding claims can quickly become complex. The ability to recover compensation often depends on whom you were working for, whom or what caused the accident and whether the scaffolding was erected properly. The team at The Epstein Law Firm has the proven ability to succeed in these situations, and we will work diligently to obtain a positive outcome for you.
