    Where to get scaffolding accident compensation advice

    Scaffolding is used not only on construction sites but also when repairs are being carried out to properties – for example roof repairs or redecorating exterior woodwork. Erected properly, scaffolding is generally fairly safe, but there have been cases where scaffolding has collapsed and left workers seriously injured. If you have been the victim of a scaffolding accident, you could claim compensation within three years of your accident, and the easiest way to find out if you’re eligible is to get scaffolding accident compensation advice from Accident Advice Helpline.

    What injuries have you suffered?

    A scaffolding accident could lead to serious, life-changing injuries, although you may be lucky enough to escape with cuts and bruises. Over the years Accident Advice Helpline has offered scaffolding accident compensation advice to hundreds of workers and here are just a few examples of the types of injuries we have handled claims for:

    • Head injuries such as concussion or brain injury
    • Crush injuries from scaffolding collapse, such as broken ribs or a punctured lung
    • Broken bones
    • Back, shoulder or serious spinal injuries

    If you have been injured after a fall from scaffolding or a scaffolding collapse, ask yourself if more could have been done to prevent your accident from happening. It might be that scaffolding you were working on collapsed as it wasn’t fit for purpose – maybe it wasn’t able to withstand the required load or it wasn’t erected properly. Or perhaps you fell from scaffolding as there were no boards in place. Whatever has happened, we can help you get the compensation you deserve after your employer has been negligent.
