Scaffolding Accident Claims
There’s no doubt that working on scaffolding can be dangerous, but when negligence is at play, the environment can become even more hazardous. If health and safety legislation and procedures aren’t adhered to, risk factor can be emphasised dramatically. There are many steps that you can take to get the compensation that you deserve if you’ve been involved in a scaffolding accident that wasn’t your fault, whether you’ve slipped, tripped or fell. Many workers have suffered life-threatening injuries or worse after their employers failed to obey HSE regulations, so if you feel that you have a case, get in touch with the experts at Blackwater Law today.
Scaffolding equipment needs to be maintained and checked regularly to ensure that the highest standards of safety are in place for those working at height. Staff who construct and erect scaffolding must be trained to do so. Most accidents involving scaffolding still involve negligence and many people have been injured whilst working on scaffolding even without falling due to being hit by debris or having scaffolding collapse on them.
