Injured in a Scaffold Accident?
If you have been hired to work on a construction site then you must be aware of the potential danger. While these opportunities are great to stimulate employment and income for many families, there are many risks associated with construction. One of the more common risks is a scaffolding accident. These construction accidents can occur due to a number of different reasons.
If the scaffold is not properly constructed then it can literally fall apart while there are workers on top of it, if it is not properly secured then the entire scaffold could possible tip over and cause serious fall accidents, and one other way that an individual can be injured in a scaffold accident is if a coworker acts negligently or there is an unseen obstacle that causes an employee to fall off of the scaffold.
You May be Entitled to Money Damages
The results of these accidents can be extremely severe, broken bones and even death in some cases can be the result of a serious scaffold fall or accident. If you have been injured in an accident like this then you may be entitled to collect money damages for your injuries.
