Scaffolding accidents and other construction accidents can lead to serious and fatal injuries. Despite complex regulations and industry standards intended to protect workers from the dangers of scaffolds, many individuals and families continue to suffer the devastation of scaffolding injuries and death. If your loved one has been injured or killed in a scaffolding accident, you may be entitled to recover significant compensation under state and federal regulations related to construction site safety and operations. The Orlow Firm is a team of scaffolding accident attorneys experienced in recovering maximum compensation for the families and victims of scaffolding accidents.
Using evidence, experts, legal knowledge, and strategy, we are able to advocate for your family to help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Workers’ compensation and construction accident recovery
Even if you are receiving workers’ compensation benefits, you may be eligible for additional damages if a third party (someone other than your employer or a coworker) caused your injuries. Examples of third parties include scaffolding manufacturers, a subcontractor who erected the scaffold, or a landlord. Settlements and verdicts awarded to victims of scaffold accidents caused by third-party negligence are typically much greater than workers’ compensation awards.
At The Orlow Firm, we take all cases on a "contingent fee" basis. A contingent fee means that the attorneys are paid only at the time when, and if, they recover money damages for the client. A contingent fee thereby allows an injured person with little or no financial resources to obtain competent legal assistance. At the time recovery is obtained, the attorneys’ fee is a percentage of the award in the case. If there is no recovery, there will be no attorneys’ fees.*
