Did You Suffer an Injury on a Construction Job?

Construction sites have known to be one of the most hazardous workplaces in the United States. Day in and day out, construction workers put their careers and lives on the line while working in great heights on scaffolding. Unfortunately, scaffolding accidents frequently occur, resulting in serious bodily injuries and fatalities.

With over 70 years of combined legal experience, our West Virginia injury lawyers have a thorough understanding of state laws and court proceedings to help make the most successful recovery from your injuries.

Causes of Scaffolding Accidents

According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), 65% of the 2.3 million construction workers in the nation work on scaffolding. Every year, 60 workers die and 4,500 are injured while working on scaffolding.

Construction managers and foremen are responsible to make sure the site is the as safe as possible to work in and the equipment complies with strict safety standards. If they fail to meet these obligations, you may be eligible for workers compensation. However, you may also be entitled to seeking a personal injury claim if the accident was a third-party’s fault, such as the manufacturer of the scaffolding.

Common causes of scaffolding accidents include:

  • Missing parts
  • No side brackets
  • No guard rails
  • Plank failure
  • Poorly built or maintained scaffolding
