Common Scaffold Accident Injuries

Scaffolds and ladders are frequently used by construction workers to operate on the sides of structures and above buildings due to the nature of their work. As a result, scaffolders have been known to suffer a wide range of serious and life-threatening work injuries, the most common of which are:

  • Broken Bones
  • Nerve Damage
  • Rib Fracture
  • Concussion
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
  • Neck Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Death

Hazardous circumstances that lead a construction worker to fall from a scaffolding structure are usually the cause of these fatal scaffolding accidents. As a result, scaffolding accident victims frequently face high medical expenses, lost income, and other financial difficulties.

Over 2 million individuals work on scaffolds in the United States, with approximately 4,500 employees injured as a result of a scaffolding incident. Despite the fact that workers' compensation laws were created to assist injured workers, victims sometimes have difficulties navigating the claims process. Receiving the financial compensation you deserve might be difficult without the assistance of an experienced attorney. That is why we strongly advise all scaffolding accident victims to seek the advice of a professional scaffolding accident attorney.

Scaffold Injury Safety Standards

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was created to protect scaffolding workers in the construction industry since they regularly work in hazardous situations. OSHA enforces safety regulations that all firms must adhere to in order to ensure the health and safety of their scaffolding workers.

OSHA established the safety requirement for all construction businesses in the United States. Construction businesses that refuse to follow the established safety requirements put their workers in danger on a regular basis. As a result, construction workers sustain significant injuries that may have been avoided if rules and regulations had been strictly adhered to.

The following are some of the most prevalent scaffolding injuries:

  • Scaffolding defects 
  • Inadequate access to safety equipment
  • Not maintaining equipment properly
  • Defective equipment 
  • Being struck by a falling object
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Unclear safety regulations

Scaffolder accidents are often caused by a lack of adequate safety precautions. Furthermore, a lack of scaffolding training has a substantial influence on the rate of personal injury-causing scaffolding occurrences. Scaffolders with insufficient training are unable to set up scaffolds with adequate protections, resulting in unsafe planking. Workers traveling on the scaffold are at risk of harm if they are not properly supported.

Scaffolding events that result in bodily harm include:

  • Incorrect scaffolding training
  • Electrical wiring issues
  • Roofing accidents
  • Unsupervised work on the scaffold

If you were injured in a scaffolding accident caused by a violation of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards, your employer might be held responsible.

Workers’ Compensation Rules & Regulations

In the event of a construction or scaffolding accident, workers' compensation was designed to protect both the employer and the employee. Employers must provide employees with "no-fault" insurance coverage that covers a workplace accident in exchange for the employee agreeing not to sue the firm for further compensation.

Workers' compensation insurance is designed to cover medical expenses incurred as a result of a scaffolding accident at work, as well as a percentage of the worker's income to help them get back on their feet.

Worker's compensation claims are routinely denied or rejected as inconclusive, which is unfortunate. Scaffolding accident claims are routinely dismissed for a variety of reasons, including the employer's decision to dispute the claim, the timeliness of the filing, and poor medical care.

After incurring injuries in a scaffolding accident, you may be eligible to various forms of compensation, regardless of whether you qualify for workers' compensation payments. Justice Guardians workers' compensation attorneys can assist you in determining your alternatives.

Free Consultations For Scaffold Accident Victims

Since they are getting workers' compensation via their employer's insurance carrier, many construction workers feel they are not entitled to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent party. That isn't always the case, though. If a third party, such as a manufacturer, contractor, or property owner, is responsible for your scaffolding injuries, they may be held liable.

If you or a loved one has been harmed in a scaffolding accident, contact our experienced scaffolding accident attorneys. We have the expertise and resources to assist you in filing a claim. Our legal team can provide you a free case evaluation, and because we work on a contingency fee basis, you can get started right away.
