Scaffolding Accidents And Serious Injuries
Scaffolding accidents and falls from heights such as roofs under construction are nearly always avoidable. Safety regulations instruct construction contractors and management in ways to prevent tragic injuries. Companies that construct and erect scaffolds know what they have to do in order to protect construction workers and others who work on high elevations such as window washers and electrical crews.
Contact Williams, Walsh & O'Connor, LLC, in North Haven, Connecticut, to receive a free initial consultation if you suffered a catastrophic injury (spinal cord injury, head injury or broken bone) or if a loved one has died in a height-related falling accident at a construction site.
Our personal injury attorneys are experienced and prepared to help you and your family pursue the compensation that you need after a scaffolding accident or a falling accident at a work site. We accept personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will not be assessed a legal fee unless or until compensation is recovered on your behalf.
When Negligence At A Construction Site Results In Falls From Heights
The risks of working on elevated surfaces such as roofs, scaffolds and cherry pickers are easily recognized. The inherent dangers involved are no excuse for failure of supervisors to enforce well-accepted safety measures such as the use of straps and guard rails. When our clients have suffered because of someone’s negligence, we work hard to ensure that the injured will be adequately compensated for losses such as the following:
- Medical expenses
- Replacement of lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Spouses’ claims for their own losses
- Wrongful death claims for surviving family members
We also represent victims of malpractice by other professionals who may have played a part in falling accidents or structural collapses, such as inspectors, engineers and architects.
