If you or a loved one suffered an injury at work that is Scaffolding related and you want to know if you can bring a Scaffolding accident lawsuit rather than just filing a worker’s compensation claim, contact us at 1 (877) 561-0000 to speak with our lawyers. We handle Scaffolding accidents nationwide (in conjunction with local counsel) and we’re only paid if we win the case. We can see if there is a way to sue outside of Worker’s Compensation for people who are seriously injured, which depends on each state’s individual laws.
DID YOU KNOW IN SOME STATES, LIKE NEW YORK SCAFFOLDING ACCIDENTS ARE STRICT LIABILITY? That means your employer is automatically liable if you have a scaffolding related accident and we only need to prove the extent of your damages.
Nowadays most Scaffolding injuries are preventable, if the worker is given the proper equipment, training and if there is ample time to consider safety measures. Unfortunately, often times work is rushed, safety steps are overlooked and training is not provided, which is a recipe for a Scaffolding fatality or serious calamity.
Some Common types of Scaffolding Injuries are:
- Broken Bones
- Head Injuries
- Scaffolding Related Paralysis
- Scaffolding Caused Paraplegia or Quadriplegia
- Scaffolding Injury Amputations or Severing of Limbs or Digits
- Skull Fractures
- Scaffolding Accident Wrongful Death
There are various ways you can commence a Scaffolding accident lawsuit – if the company you worked for is responsible through:
- Contributory negligence
- Strict Liability
- Third Party Liability for bad Equipment
- Intentional Acts
- Insufficient Training
- Bad Safety Equipment
Depending on the severity of your case, we can bring an action to recover:
- Life Long Care
- Medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Pain and suffering
- Long-term treatment
- Loss of Employment
- As well as compensation for all your Scaffolding related consequences
