National Recognition For Our Handling Of Aerial Lift Accident Claims
The New York Labor Law holds contractors accountable when a worker suffers a gravity-related injury. Construction workers who are injured in aerial lift accidents frequently find it difficult to obtain fair compensation because their injuries occur while they are in the basket of the lift, and gravity doesn’t always come into play.
At Edelman & Edelman, P.C., we represent New York City construction workers in civil liability claims against aerial lift manufacturers, such as JLG Industries, Inc., in all types of aerial lift injury cases, including several where labor laws do not apply. We have succeeded where other lawyers said there was no claim, and our precedent-setting work in these matters has been recognized across the country.
Skillful Representation From Respected New York City Lawyers
Aerial lift accidents frequently involve some unique elements not found in crane accidents or incidents involving other types of equipment. In some cases, injuries occur when workers are catapulted upward due to forced energy in the aerial lift that releases the basket after the controls have been disengaged. This can result in the worker being ejected from the basket or launched into a ceiling or the underside of a bridge.
We have represented workers and families in aerial lift accident claims arising from a variety of causes. We have a deep understanding of how these machines operate and the types of injuries that can happen due to any cause, including equipment malfunction and operator error, among others. We look closely at the unique facts of every case in order to present the strongest possible argument in support of your claim for damages.

There are times when we may not know the extent of your injuries or the true value of your claim until we fully get into the case.
