Falls from Scaffolding on Construction Sites

In some sectors, mainly that of construction, the use of scaffolding is necessary for working on elevated sites. Hundreds of people each year are injured or lose their life by falling from scaffolding in the United States. Due to the potential danger this activity represents, the law offers special protection for workers who are exposed to risks from working at extreme heights.

Therefore, the law requires owners and contractors to provide workers with the necessary safety equipment, such as hard hats, gloves, harnesses, safety cords, railings, scaffolding in good condition, and so forth. An employer’s negligence to provide these safety elements may cause severe injuries to workers, or even death.

If you have suffered a fall from scaffolding, whether you or a third party were at fault, you are entitled to receive financial compensation for the injuries you sustained, as well as payment for your medical expenses and missed pay during your convalescence.
