Common Causes Of Scaffolding Accidents
Deficient scaffolding is one of the most common workplace safety violations. If you were injured at work, you would have a claim for workers’ compensation. Our law firm will make sure you know your rights. We have handled tens of thousands of workers’ compensation cases and can help you file a claim.
Injuries from scaffolding accidents can occur in many ways, including:
- Support or planking giving way
- Slip-and-fall on slippery scaffolding
- Falling objects or scaffolds
You may wonder if you can also make a personal injury claim as well as a workers’ compensation claim. You may be able to file a personal injury claim if the negligence of a contractor or other third party caused your accident. Pursuing a separate third-party claim will not affect your right to workers’ compensation benefits. Our experienced attorneys can guide you through this process.
