Accidents Caused By Falls From Elevated Heights
In New Jersey, individuals who work in construction, home improvement, cleaning and maintenance, demolition, and other industries are often required to perform their duties using ladders and/or scaffolding. While OSHA regulations and other mandated guidelines protect workers from unsafe conditions, individuals still sustain severe injuries on the job. Elevated heights only add to the potential hazard of serious or fatal injuries.
The lawyers at Rubenstein, Berliner & Shinrod, LLC have been representing individuals who have been catastrophically injured by falls from elevated heights for decades. Our attorneys are determined to protect your rights and help you identify who was responsible for your injuries.

- Was the scaffolding or ladder properly secured at the time of the accident?
- Were all other safety precautions taken to prevent potential injuries?
