Scaffolding accidents are a common occurrence at construction sites. Workers are injured both in falls and by being struck by objects dropped from scaffolds. If you have been injured in a scaffolding accident, you may be entitled to compensation beyond Workers’ Compensation.
Workers’ Compensation provides medical and wage replacement benefits if you are injured on the job. These benefits are available regardless of who was at fault. However, Workers’ Compensation benefits are limited and do not cover everything you have lost. For example, it provides no compensation for pain and suffering, which is typically the largest component of a personal injury case.
If your scaffolding accident was caused the negligence of someone else, you may be entitled to additional compensation by filing a personal injury claim. While your employer is generally protected from being sued by employees for job-related injuries, others who do not work directly for your employer are not. These are known as third-party claims. Examples of third parties who may be negligent in a scaffolding accident case include:
- The company that installed the scaffold
- The manufacturer of the scaffolding
- The property owner
Our construction injury attorneys will review your accident case and look for evidence of negligence, such as:
- defective scaffolding
- missing safety harnesses
- missing safety nets
- faulty installation
Our goal is to help you recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to from all sources.
