Scaffolding Accident Claims & Injuries
Have you been injured through a scaffolding accident? Whether you have been injured whilst using scaffolding at work, or falling objects from above?
Scaffolding work carries a very high risk of injury and there are strict legal regulations that must be followed by those responsible for the scaffolding. If fault can be shown in how the scaffolding was constructed, dismantled, whilst it was in use, or even if there was a design fault with the structure, and this resulted in causing you an injury, then you could be entitled to make a claim against those responsible.
If you work with scaffolding, your employer owes you a duty of care to ensure your safety and this includes making sure you have received the correct training and that you are provided with the appropriate protective workwear. If your employer has failed to provide these to you, and an accident results from that breach of duty, then you could be entitled to make a claim against your employer.
We can also provide expert advice and guidance to members of the public who have been inured by faulty scaffolding structures or from falling objects.
