Scaffolding Accidents Can Cause Devastating Injuries

While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specific guidelines in place to prevent scaffolding accidents, incidents still occur that injure workers and pedestrians every year. Scaffolding accidents can cause serious injuries including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, electrical burns, broken bones and death.

Common causes of scaffolding injuries include:

  • Incorrect or negligent setup
  • Not securing scaffolding properly
  • Falling from scaffolding
  • Falling objects
  • Electrocution

After a scaffolding accident, you may require extensive medical treatments and rehabilitation to recover. Alongside your physical and emotional pain, you may also have to contend with expensive medical bills and lost wages from time off work.

Depending on your circumstances, you may win compensation to cover your medical bills, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, lost future income, loss of quality of life, mental anguish, and pain and suffering.
