Scaffolding Accidents on Long Island
Long Island Scaffolding Accident Attorney
One of the most common construction accident injuries is a scaffolding
fall. These can occur in a variety of circumstances, but a collapse of
the scaffolding is not uncommon. In some cases, a fall occurs through
a sequence of events such as a falling object or a failure of the company
to abide by the safety requirements under state law.
The injuries that result in these accidents are often very severe, including
brain damage or
spinal injuries. A fall from scaffolding resulting in severe injuries demands support
from a skilled Long Island personal injury attorney when seeking compensation
for damages. At The Odierno Law Firm, P.C.,

Filing a Defective Product Claim

structure, or a failure of a connecting piece of the structure. When the
equipment manufacturer has failed to provide a product that is safe, it
is likely that they can be named as liable in a
defective product lawsuit filed on behalf of the injured.
