Scaffolding is needed in most construction projects. Scaffolding allows construction workers to reach upper levels safely without the use of a ladder. When the scaffolding is not secure, workers and pedestrians below are at risk of serious injury. The attorneys at Duke Burleson & Associates provide years of courtroom experience to those families and individuals who have been injured due to a scaffolding collapse.
At Duke Burleson & Associates we understand the hardships that accompany an injury or loss. The personal injury attorneys at Duke Burleson & Associates can help with the issues of medical bills, loss of employment, disability, and many other difficult situations.Scaffolding Collapse Accidents
Scaffolding can and does collapse. Often times the collapse occurs with workers standing on the scaffolding and people standing below. The following are examples of accidents and situations that may lead to a scaffolding collapse:
- Defective Safety Systems
- Defective Brake on Suspended Scaffolds
- Improperly Secured
- Failure to Properly Inspect
- Lack of Maintenance
- Old Materials
- Badly Constructed Scaffold
Scaffolding equipment requires the utmost care. When a construction company is on a tight schedule, corners may cut and safety measures sacrificed. A rushed crew becomes a carless crew. This is unacceptable when constructing a scaffold. The scaffolding is responsible for the safety and lives of many individuals. Too many people are at risk if the scaffolding fails.
