Did Your Employer Violate Safety Standards?
The majority of scaffold accidents happen when an individual plank or the scaffold support fails. In addition, many injuries on scaffolds can be attributed to slippery surfaces or falling objects. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and state workplace safety guidelines are very specific about how scaffolding should be used to maintain worker safety. When these standards are ignored, the results can be catastrophic.
We have obtained significant jury verdicts and settlements in a wide range of construction accident cases. These cases are often complex and require thorough investigation and careful preparation. Our law firm uses a team approach and accepts only a limited number of cases to ensure that clients receive the personal attention and care they deserve.
We Help To Prove An Employer’s Negligence
Negligence in manufacturing, constructing, maintaining or using scaffolding can threaten workers’ safety. Proving that negligence was the cause of a scaffolding injury in court requires experience and dedication. We work to identify the negligent party or parties to ensure that they are held accountable for the harm they have caused. Dangerous premises and use of substandard materials cannot be tolerated. By pursuing full compensation for injuries and deaths caused by negligence in scaffolding accidents, you help to ensure greater attention is paid to workplace safety in the future.
