Many construction workers use scaffolding every day at their work site. Scaffolding can be extremely dangerous if it is not set up properly.

Scaffolding is an intricate system of tubes, couplers, and boards that is fastened to a structure. Scaffolding can be used on the interior or exterior of a building and varies in height and width. There are specific requirements for scaffolding in order for it to be safe for the workers that use it. There are specific height, strength, and safety requirements that must be followed, such as toe boards and guard rails.

Scaffolding Injuries

Falls from heights are the most common deadly construction accident. Construction workers who are on scaffolding are usually doing all of their work from a high elevation off the ground. If proper safety measures are not in place, there is a high probability that the employee could fall off of the scaffolding. Falls from scaffolding result in broken bones, head trauma, paralysis, and even death. If you have been injured because of a fall from scaffolding, we can help you learn more about your legal rights.

If scaffolding is not build with proper materials and a proper foundation, there is a chance that it could collapse. A scaffolding collapse is extremely dangerous because the workers who are on the scaffolding will sustain injuries from the fall as well as injuries from being struck by scaffolding. Collapsed scaffolding can be extremely heavy and could pin someone underneath the scaffolding, causing serious injury or death. If you have been hurt because scaffolding collapsed, you should contact one of the Manhattan scaffolding accident attorneys at a Brooklyn construction accident law firm.

Scaffolding Accidents

When scaffolding is not built properly or used properly, there is a chance that a piece of the scaffolding or a piece of equipment on the scaffolding could fall off and strike someone on the ground. If you were a worker who was struck by a falling piece of scaffolding at your job site or you were a passer-by who was injured by a falling piece of scaffolding, you may have a claim to compensate you for your injuries. If you have been injured by another person’s negligence in building and maintaining scaffolding, you should speak with an experienced Brooklyn scaffolding accident lawyer as soon as possible.
