Pennsylvania Scaffolding Accidents
We offer the skilled guidance that construction workers, factory workers, painters, window washers, roofers and other scaffold accident victims, and their families, need to recover the compensation they deserve. We are equipped to handle workers' compensation claims as well as personal injury and wrongful death claims arising from all types of scaffolding accidents, including:
- Scaffolding collapses
- Falls from scaffolding
- Falls from ladders positioned on scaffolding
- Falling debris hits the worker on the scaffolding
- Debris from the scaffold platform falls and injures another worker or passerby
- Other types of scaffolding accidents
Scaffolding accidents can occur due to many different reasons. Whether the scaffold was constructed improperly, there were problems with guardrails or there were other defects contributing to the on-the-job accident, our attorneys and experts may attempt to identify the cause and demonstrate liability. This will enable our law firm to possibly pursue third-party liability compensation on your behalf, in addition to workers' compensation benefits. This is extremely important when you are suffering from a life-changing injury or a loved one has died in a workplace accident.
