Scaffolding is part of almost every construction project in the busy state of New York. Because scaffolds are such an integral part of construction projects, it is important that all parts of the scaffolding are in good working order to ensure a safe working environment. If the scaffolding frames are in poor condition or improperly assembled to support the required load, it may create a very dangerous, and even deadly, situation for the construction workers.

Wilhelm, our legal team has the experience, knowledge and resources to successfully handle scaffold accidents. We are dedicated to getting you and your family the full compensation that you deserve.
New York Labor Law 240(1) and 241(6)
Under New York’s Labor Law Section 240(1), contractors and site owners may well be liable for injuries suffered by workers who fall from heights. Additionally, Sections 240(1) and 241(6) require most contractors and site owners to protect workers’ safety by providing proper scaffolds, hoists, harnesses and other workplace safety equipment for work at elevations.
Although these laws have resulted in a lower rate of scaffolding accidents throughout the State of New York, accidents still happen. Injuries from falls and scaffold collapses result in serious injuries, including:
- Brain injury
- Back injury
- Neck injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Leg injury
- Knee injury
- Arm injury
- Elbow injury, etc.
