Tough, Responsive Attorneys For Falling Injuries In The Bronx

At any given moment in New York City, construction workers are high up on ladders and scaffolding, building the City up. And where there are people high off the ground, there is the risk of a serious, life-threatening fall injury. That is when you need a skilled scaffolding injury lawyer on your side.

At MJP Injury Law, our attorneys have built a reputation for being as tough as the people we represent – construction workers in New York trying to recover from a falling injury. Falling injuries – like head injuries – are typically going to be workers’ compensation cases, but that doesn’t mean recovering compensation will be easy. We’re here to take on your case and usher it through the often complex gauntlet that is New York workers compensation law.

We Fight For The Workers

In New York, there is a law in place specifically for workers with scaffolding-related injuries. New York law holds construction companies liable for falls from scaffolding, punishing companies for not complying with safety regulations.

The law in New York significantly adds to the possible compensation available for construction workers who fall from a height on the job. However, this isn’t a guarantee of benefits or compensation. The scaffolding law is complicated, and going it alone is difficult. We’re here to help.

Third-Party Claims And Falls

There are times when a fall claim won’t be pursued as workers’ compensation, or at least not purely in that direction. These instances are when the reason for the fall isn’t on the building owner but is a defective product or the fault of a visitor to the site, such as:

  • Delivery drivers
  • Maintenance workers
  • Inspectors

Regardless of the reason for the fall or the initial point of liability, we’ll stay with you for as long as you need us to. We will be relentless in the pursuit of your third-party claim.

Toughness You Can Rely On

In the midst of your injury treatment, you will find yourself in an ocean of paperwork, with insurers doing everything they can to discourage you. Those tactics only work if you don’t have an attorney ready to fight for you.
