Falling Object Injuries and Scaffolding
Scaffolding is a common site in the streets of crowded Manhattan and elsewhere in New York. It is the only way for construction crews to perform their work many stories above the city thoroughfares. Unfortunately, safety measures that are put in place by the government are frequently ignored causing a twofold hazard.
