Fighting for Maximum Compensation for Injured Workers
The nature of a painter's job often requires him or her to work on scaffolds and ladders at significant heights. This fact alone leads to an increased risk of falling. When the negligence or carelessness of a building owner or contractor is involved in the accident, however, New York Labor Law 240 gives the injured worker the right to file a lawsuit and recover money for his or her damages. Examples of negligence may include:
- Improper scaffold construction
- Poor ladder maintenance
- Lack of proper safety gear or fall restraints
At the law firm of Block O'Toole & Murphy, our New York painter accident attorneys have recovered more than 300 verdicts and settlements in excess of $1 million dollars* for painters and other injured individuals throughout the five boroughs and beyond. A few of our case results include:
- $5,030,572 recovery for a construction worker injured when a scaffold tipped over
- $2,600,000 settlement for a union laborer injured when he fell off an unguarded scaffold
- $2,200,000 recovery for a 37-year-old laborer who suffered a back injury in a scaffolding accident
