When a construction worker is injured or killed on the job, the employer typically steers the injured worker or his or her survivors to workers’ compensation. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation benefits are limited. When an accident is caused by the negligence of another party, as is often the case in scaffolding accidents, you may have the option of filing a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party. By filing a personal injury lawsuit, you can obtain full compensation for everything you have lost.

Negligence and Scaffolding Accidents

Injuries caused by scaffolding accidents are preventable in many cases. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration:

  • 25 percent of workers injured in scaffold accidents had received no scaffold safety training
  • 77 percent of scaffolds involved in these accidents were not equipped with guardrails

OSHA sets specific safety standards to protect workers from hazards such as fallsfalling objects, structural instability, electrocution and overloading. If the contractor responsible for the scaffold did not follow these safety standards, our lawyers can hold the contractor accountable. We can also hold your employer accountable for failure to provide proper training.

It’s important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after a scaffolding accident so that evidence of safety violations can be collected and preserved.
