Scaffolding accidents

Do you work at a commercial construction site? During the day do you spend time on a scaffold?

Scaffolds are temporary platforms that workers use at a construction site in order to reach areas that are normally out of their reach, such as cleaning windows on a tall building or painting that building.

If a scaffold is improperly installed, it could very well collapse and cause injury or death to the person standing on it - not to mention those below it. According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, more than 65% of construction workers use scaffolds daily and thousands of workers are injured every year because of a defective one.

Factors that cause injury include improper use or installation, jumping and moving quickly on a scaffold and untrained personnel using them. These factors can cause the scaffold to collapse, the worker or tools to fall off, and even an electric shock.

If you have been injured because of a defective scaffold or the negligence of another person who installed it, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will investigate your case to determine if you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and expenses.
