Scaffold-related accidents at construction sites

Accidents are a common occurrence on construction sites. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimated that about 2.3 million of workers use scaffolds in construction sites in the U.S.

If you have been involved in a scaffold-related accident, the first thing that you might have thought about is getting your workers' compensation. If you are successful in obtaining compensation, your medical expenses and lost wages due to injury at the workplace will be covered. Even if you have not experienced any sort of injuries so far, getting familiar with these laws will be beneficial for you. It is in your best interests to understand your rights in the workplace. 

Injuries resulting from scaffold accidents can be serious in many cases. Due to the design and structure of a scaffold, most injuries are the result of falling or slipping. The presence of faulty equipment is another cause for accidents. Scaffold-related accidents are one of the most common types of constructions site accidents in New York.

How the scaffold accident takes place is very important. Could the accident have been avoided if proper safety gear was provided to the worker? If the scaffold-related accident is due to the  negligence of the employer or faulty equipment, you may want to pursue a personal injury claim. A personal injury claim allows you to obtain compensation above your workers' compensation.

An experienced attorney may help ease you through the process and make sure you get rightfully compensated. Even if you have not experienced any work-related injuries, specifically scaffold-related mishaps, it is important to know your rights. Hiring an attorney who specializes in such cases may help you carry out your workplace injury claims.
