Concrete work involves many different variables, each one of which is essential to the success of the job. The mix has to be right and it has to be poured correctly. Before anything else is able to happen, however, the shores and forms need to be set up. This is arguably the most important step in the process. Without sufficient shores and forms, workers put themselves at risk of being injured in wall collapses or other serious accidents.
New York state regulations require compliance with strict regulations regarding the use of concrete shores and forms that are sufficient to maintain the integrity of the walls. When these regulations are not met and accidents happen, the contractor can be held responsible for any injuries suffered by workers.
These cases can be extremely complex, and it is important that you have an experienced accident injury lawyer representing you from the start. At the law firm of Rosenblum & Gelbman, LLP., we represent workers in all types of workplace injuries, including those caused due to the use of insufficient concrete shores and forms.
Committed to Maximum Compensation for
Your Construction Site Injuries
We go beyond the damages available through workers’ compensation and seek to recover compensation from the parties who actually caused your injuries, including the manufacturer of defective shores and forms, the company that installed them and any other parties that may share in the responsibility.
These can be very difficult cases to prove because the responsible parties will typically point the finger at someone else. We work closely with a group of highly skilled specialists who can help us determine the cause of the accident and who should be held accountable. Once the responsible parties have been identified, we will build the strongest possible case to secure the maximum level of compensation you are entitled to under the law.
