The seriousness of a scaffolding accident

There are many professions in which you may be required to spend time on scaffolding. For example, construction workers and painters are always using this type of equipment to complete a variety of tasks.

Despite the fact that most companies and workers do their best to ensure a safe working environment, there are times when a scaffolding accident occurs. Some of the most common reasons for this type of injury include:

-- Being struck by a falling object while standing on scaffolding

-- Slipping and falling

-- Scaffolding support that gives way, leading to a collapse or fall

Due to the fact that scaffolding is high off the ground, when an accident occurs, the victim is often injured. In the most serious of incidents, it is possible for a person to be killed in such an accident.

A person who is injured in a scaffolding accident on the job has many rights. For example, he or she can file a workers' compensation claim with his or her employer. Additionally, this does not affect the injured party's ability to make a third party claim as a means of recovering additional compensation.

There is no denying the fact that the use of scaffolding can make many jobs, such as painting a home, much easier. However, there is no guarantee that an accident will never happen.
