    Compensation for scaffolder arm injuries


    Working on scaffolding might not seem dangerous, but did you know that falls from height are the leading cause of fatalities at work in the UK? If you fall from scaffolding, you could sustain serious arm injuries which could make it impossible for you to return to work, affecting your finances and your future. Luckily, Accident Advice Helpline has 15 years’ experience helping those with scaffolder arm injuries to claim the personal injury compensation they deserve.

    Scaffolder arm injuries could be caused after a fall from scaffolding, or perhaps the scaffolding you were working on collapsed, trapping you underneath and causing crush injuries.

    It could even be that you were injured by objects or parts of scaffolding (or even roof materials) falling from above and striking you. If you’ve been injured, we can help you claim personal injury compensation, and because our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, you won’t have any upfront legal fees to worry about.

    Serious arm injuries

    Arm injuries caused after an accident on scaffolding could include:

    • Broken bones – a complex fracture could become infected or take longer to heal than some other types of fracture
    • Cuts and bruises
    • Crush injuries where bones are shattered in several places – this could even lead to the loss of a limb

    If something has gone wrong on the scaffolding at your place of work and you have been left seriously injured, you’ve probably required medical treatment and may even still be off work recovering from your injuries.

    In the case of serious crush injuries, you may find you’re unable to return to work in a physical job, which could affect you and your family financially in the future. Being unemployed also leaves you at risk of suffering from depression.

    If an accident at work has left you suffering and in pain, you want a personal injury lawyer you can trust.
