Have You Been Injured in a Scaffold Accident?
When safety regulations are overlooked in the construction of scaffoldings, people working in and around the scaffolds can suffer serious injuries and even wrongful death. Scaffolding injuries include:
- Falls from heights
- Workers getting crushed by collapsing scaffoldings
- Objects falling from scaffoldings, hitting workers below
When we handle workplace accident claims, we thoroughly investigate all aspects of the accident to determine the cause of the accident and to identify liable parties. Oftentimes, our investigations uncover negligence on the part of a construction site manager, scaffolding contractor, manufacturer or other party.
Third-Party Scaffold Accident Claims
If your scaffolding accident was the result of negligence on the part of a third party (not your employer), you may pursue additional compensation through a personal injury claim. Personal injury law allows for compensation for pain and suffering, diminished quality of life, and other elements not covered by workers' compensation law. Our lawyers can help you pursue all avenues of financial relief, so you can obtain the compensation you need to pay your medical bills and rebuild your life.
