Scaffolding Accident Lawyers
Construction workers face many dangers on a day-to-day basis. Often, construction work is done on scaffolding, putting workers at risk of falls. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a scaffolding accident, the attorneys at Kampf, Schiavone & Associates are here to help you get the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to.
Most people who were injured while working on scaffolding have been the victims of falling accidents. Falls from scaffolding can result in:
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
Even a fall from low scaffolding can result in devastating injuries. These falls may be tied to other types of construction accidents as well. For example, a worker may have fallen from scaffolding because the scaffolding was hit by a crane or another piece of heavy equipment.
Not all scaffolding accidents are falling accidents. Workers may be injured because improperly assembled or defective scaffolding fell on top of them. Accidents may also involve tools, construction materials and other objects being dropped off of scaffolding and landing on top of workers. Whatever the cause, if the fall happened at work, the victim is eligible for workers’ compensation. Our lawyers have decades of combined experience pursuing benefits for injured workers in San Bernardino and throughout California’s Inland Empire.
