How to Prove Your Case After You’ve Been Involved in a Scaffolding Accident

The Law Office Of Nicholas E. Tzaneteas

Anyone who has worked in construction in New York City knows the obvious perils that they face each day. Making it home after the end of a long and risky project is a daily battle. And, even the most experienced and cautious construction workers aren’t immune to suffering an injury, and scaffolding accidents can be particularly deadly. If you’ve been injured in a scaffolding accident, contact your trusted NYC Construction Accident Lawyer immediately to determine how to navigate the situation, prove your case, and fight for the compensation you’re entitled to.

Proving Your Case

Arguably the most important aspect of proving your case is identifying which OSHA standards were bypassed or ignored at your construction site. New York law states that any site owner or manager must comply with regulations and safety protocols set forth by OSHA. Building, maintaining and operating scaffolding are all critical aspects of a functional and safe construction site that must be upheld.

Once you suffer an injury, find the person in charge of the construction site immediately to report the incident. 
Next, consult with your experienced construction accident lawyer to determine how to prove the site manager failed to perform specific safety duties which led to your injury.

Once these factors have been established, you’ll need your lawyer’s help to determine what types of compensation you are entitled to. As we’ve mentioned, scaffolding injuries tend to be severe, and involve a whole list of reasons why you are eligible to be compensated, including:

  • Bodily injury
  • Death
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost wages

In such dire circumstances, let our law firm fight for you so you can focus on recovery and getting back to normal.


After a traumatic scaffolding injury, the last thing you want to do is deal with the inevitable legal hurdles that ensue. Our experienced team will fight for you to earn you the monetary compensation you deserve. We will review your accident and determine whether you have a case and if you are eligible for financial compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
