As with all other types of jobs involving working at heights, working on scaffolding carries obvious risks. Apart from falling, there are other types of accident that can take place which can be caused by poor maintenance, incorrectly erected scaffolding or failure to install safety barriers. If you have suffered an injury whilst working on or around scaffolding, you may be entitled to make a scaffolding injury compensation claim.
for no obligation advice on making a claim.
We are experts in scaffolding injury compensation and can deal with claims under a no win no fee agreement.
It is the duty of the employer to ensure that preventative measures are in place to minimise the risk of falling off scaffolding or other types of accident. The employer is responsible for carrying out risk assessments and adopting safety measures to prevent workers from being involved in scaffolding accidents. If your employer has failed in these duties, and you have suffered an injury as a result, then you could be entitled to scaffolding injury compensation.
In 2013 we helped a client secure a total of £1.3m in compensation when he suffered a serious head injury after a pole struck him on the head from the top of a scaffolding structure. After a through investigation, our complex injury solicitors obtained compensation to cover the injuries he sustained as well as long term care needs.
Falling from or being hit by scaffolding can cause serious injuries which may take a long time to recover from. You may be unable to work at a later stage if your injury becomes chronic and without adequate rest and specialist treatment, the injury could lead to additional damage.
If you have suffered a scaffolding injury that was not your fault then you are entitled to compensation to help pay for specialist medical treatment and ease the financial pressures from being unable to work, particularly if you are self-employed.
We want to help you overcome the injuries and difficulties you face by making a meticulous and effective scaffolding injury compensation claim on your behalf.
