Scaffolding can be dangerous, it’s true – but it doesn’t have to be that way. If you’ve suffered collapsing scaffold tower injuries, it could be because the scaffolding on which you were working wasn’t properly erected and maintained, or it could be that the wrong type of scaffolding was used to hold the weight required. Whatever the reasons behind your accident, our 100% no win no fee* service means that you can claim the personal injury compensation you deserve without losing sleep over legal fees.
Working on scaffolding means working at height. Did you know that falls from height account for the majority of workplace fatalities in the UK? That doesn’t automatically mean that you’re going to be involved in an accident, but it’s important that employers adhere to health and safety regulations in order to keep those working at height safe. If they fail to do so, claiming compensation with Accident Advice Helpline is just a phone call away.
Is working on scaffolding dangerous?
With any type of construction work there is a degree of risk, and obviously when you’re working at height there is more risk of being seriously injured should you fall. However, working on scaffolding shouldn’t be dangerous provided the scaffolding has been properly designed, is fit to hold the load for which it is designed and is properly erected and well maintained. Collapsing scaffold tower injuries could easily occur if too much weight is placed on unsuitable scaffolding, which could cause it to bend and buckle, leaving tools, materials and workers crashing to the ground. Our team of expert personal injury lawyers can offer you confidential, no-obligation advice if this has happened to you.

If your employer has failed to adhere to health and safety regulations, they have been negligent and could be held liable for your accident and injury, so why shouldn’t you claim the personal injury compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering?
