Representation For People Injured In Scaffolding Accidents
Of all the types of injuries construction workers suffer on the job, perhaps none are more frequent and more serious than falls from unsafe scaffolding and ladders. When scaffolds are erected incorrectly, are defective or are not inspected and maintained daily, a single step can result in a serious fall and end a working career.

If you have suffered a serious injury after falling from unsafe scaffolding or a ladder, you may be entitled to additional benefits beyond those offered by workers’ compensation insurance. Harris & Associates, P.C., is a recognized Boston area personal injury law firm. Our attorneys each offer decades of insurance litigation experience. Because we have represented injured construction workers and have defended contractors and insurers, we have the advantage of knowing how to prosecute an injured worker’s case and how liable third parties will defend themselves.
Harris & Associates is not a workers’ compensation law firm. We can work with your workers’ compensation lawyer, or independently, to pursue additional compensation from the manufacturer or contractor responsible for your scaffolding accident.
Do not assume your scaffolding accident or other construction site injury was your own fault. There are often circumstances that prove some amount of negligence on the part of the property owner, a general contractor or subcontractor or an equipment manufacturer. You will not know if you have a viable third party claim for damages until you talk to an experienced construction site injury lawyer.
Do you have a prospective client who was injured in a scaffolding accident on a construction site? If your area of experience is outside of personal injury litigation, talk to us about a referral arrangement.
