Montgomery County Scaffolding Accident Attorney

Injured In A Construction Accident?

If you work on scaffolding, you know it’s a long way down to the ground. It doesn’t matter if the scaffolding is 10 or 50 feet high, when it breaks and you fall, you can sustain an injury that will change your life forever. It happens every day, and it happens in the blink of an eye. If you fell from scaffolding while you were working, you should obtain expert legal representation to seek compensation for your injuries.

Scaffolding injuries happen for a wide variety of reasons.
  • Equipment failure
  • Slipping planks
  • Defects in the design of the scaffolding
  • Incorrect implementation of safety equipment
  • Dangerous conditions
  • Collision with a vehicle
  • Debris that falls from a higher floor
  • Lack of proper safety devices

Experienced Injury Lawyers Protecting Your Rights

Falling at a construction site is common. Ten percent of all on-the-job injuries are the result of falls. More workers die from falls than any other cause. Scaffolding is involved in roughly 40 percent of the 4,500 injuries that are sustained in falls every year, and almost 50 people die after falling from a scaffold. Frequently, the employers are responsible because they neglected to repair their equipment, failed to properly train their workers or cut corners some other way.

Workers should never be put in danger while they’re on a jobsite. Scaffolding can be safe if precautions are followed, including the use of safety devices like guard rails and fall containment systems.
