Do you have a head for heights? You would need one if you wanted to use a scaffold tower in your workplace. Of course, not all workplaces would have the need to use one of these. They are however quite common on construction and building sites, in order to help workers reach upper levels and carry on with their tasks.
Scaffold towers should only be constructed by those who are trained and qualified in how to do so. This should ensure the towers are built safely and can be used safely as well. They should also be constructed on solid and level ground, since this reduces the chances of something going wrong that might end up causing injury to one or more people on the site.
How much scaffold tower injury compensation can you claim?
It all depends on the nature of the injuries you ended up suffering from. Obviously the more serious the injuries the more likely it is you could receive a bigger payout. Long-lasting problems will incur greater payouts, while minor injuries that resolve themselves in a matter of days or weeks will get less.
Every case is different though, which is why it is always recommended that you can get no-obligation advice from a lawyer who has experience in dealing with such matters. You have a right to claim compensation if you suffered injuries through someone else’s negligence, but the actual amount you will receive is obviously dependent on a variety of assorted factors.
