Advocates For Scaffolding Accident Victims

Our firm's focus on Workers' Compensation law allows us to provide personalized representation to injured workers throughout the area. We simplify a complex and sometimes frustrating process. We serve as a vital information source, providing knowledgeable advice and answering questions as they arise.

At Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., our practice of construction accident claims often finds us representing clients who have suffered traumatic injuries in a scaffold fall. More complex and emotionally charged legal matters arise when a family comes to us, grieving the death of a loved one in a fatal accident on a construction site.

Combining Experience And Legal Knowledge

Scaffold safety issues are governed by specific rules and regulations. These labor laws are designed to resolve injuries that result from high places, including not only scaffolds, but also ladders and tall buildings. Scaffolding accidents present challenges in finding the responsible party. Employers are still covered by Workers' Compensation insurance, making them immune from a lawsuit. However, the landowner is liable when an accident occurs that involves a scaffold creating a dangerous work setting, whether they are onsite or offsite.

In addition to serious and potentially disabling injuries causing pain and suffering, a professional future is uncertain for a construction professional. Our job is to focus on the legal matters of their case and handle all aspects of Workers' Compensation, third-party, wrongful death or SSDI claims.
