Compensation For Scaffolding Falls And Other Scaffold Accidents
When it is not fatal, a fall from a scaffold, cherry picker or platform lift can cause serious and life-changing injuries. As an injured employee, you are probably covered by workers’ compensation insurance that can pay for needed medical care and provide disability benefits to make up for lost wages.
However, just because your employer has purchased workers’ compensation insurance does not mean that you will actually get benefits. Even if your claim is approved, your benefits could be terminated before you have recovered. Without an experienced attorney on your side, you may not get the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to receive.

Was Your Accident The Fault Of A Scaffold Company?
Scaffolds are typically erected and serviced by independent scaffolding companies. If your accident was the result of the failure of a scaffolding company to properly erect the structure, you may have a third-party claim against that company in addition to a workers’ compensation claim. This may enable you to obtain additional compensation for your pain and suffering, lost wages, and other economic and noneconomic losses.
Berger & Michelena has experience in cases involving both workers’ compensation and third-party claims. We will work to maximize the total compensation you receive from all sources.
