Were You Injured in a Scaffolding Accident?
Construction workers know that there are risks associated with the job. But you still deserve to work in the safest possible conditions. Site managers, property owners, and your coworkers must all comply with important safety protocol designed to help keep everyone safe on site.
For construction workers, scaffolding injuries can be among the most dangerous. Scaffolding can cause serious falls, dropped objects, or other major accidents.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, scaffolding accidents can cause dozens of fatalities per year.
That is why it is extremely important for workers to receive training about how to navigate scaffolding structures and for site managers to comply with best practices for safety. Unfortunately, preventable scaffolding accidents occur all the time.
If you or a loved one were injured in a scaffolding accident, you may be feeling hurt, angry or confused. Injuries like these can make it hard or even impossible to return to work. But an experienced attorney can help.
If your accident was caused by someone else’s carelessness or failure to follow safety protocol, they might be responsible for your injuries. A lawyer can help you explore your options. You may even be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries, medical bills and missed wages.
