    Compensation for scaffolder leg injuries

    Leg injuries could involve injuries to the thigh, calf or even the hips, and if you suffer a leg injury at work, your mobility could be affected until you have recovered. Scaffolder leg injuries have the potential to happen whenever you’re working on scaffolding, but there are things you can do to reduce the risk of an accident occurring.

    You should always ensure that the scaffolding you’re working on has been properly erected and is suitable to hold the weight of workers and equipment it will be used for. If you are concerned the scaffolding is unstable, raise these concerns with your boss. Safety equipment, such as guard rails, boards and harnesses should be provided by your manager, to minimise risk in the event of a fall from height.

    If your boss refuses to provide this equipment or is otherwise negligent and you suffer scaffolder leg injuries, you could claim personal injury compensation. Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of scaffolders claim compensation since 2000, and you could be next.

    Minor or severe injuries

    Here are a few examples of the types of situations which could lead to a leg injury for scaffolders:

    • Tools or equipment falling from height and hitting your leg
    • Fall from height
    • Slip or trip on boards or scaffolding itself
    • Scaffolding collapsing
    • Injuring yourself with tools after a slip or fall

    You may suffer from cuts or deeper lacerations, bruises, broken bones or even crush injuries, if scaffolding collapses and you are trapped underneath. Some crush injuries can cause serious damage to your limbs, and if you’ve lost a limb after a scaffolding accident, your life will change in future.
