Injured by falling scaffolding

Scaffolding is used on many buildings that are undergoing construction work, renovation or cosmetic changes. Scaffolding should always be assembled by an experienced person, and there should be a second person on hand to supervise it once it has been assembled. It should also be checked regularly if being used for a longer period – ideally, checks should take place each day before work begins. If scaffolding is not erected safely, injuries to other workers and members of the public could occur. Scaffolding could break off or fall, or objects could fall from height and strike people below. The person responsible for the scaffolding (or the company they work for) could be held liable if there is evidence of negligence, so it is important that care is taken when erecting and maintaining scaffolding.

If you have been injured by falling scaffolding, you may be wondering if you’re eligible to claim compensation. If there is evidence of negligence and it can be proved that this directly led to your injuries, you should be able to make a claim against the scaffolding construction company or individuals involved.

Claiming compensation for injuries caused by falling scaffolding

Whilst you might be wondering why you didn’t just cross the road to avoid the scaffolding, it’s a far better idea to take action and claim compensation for your injuries than to wonder, “what if?” Hiring a personal injury lawyer can help determine if negligence is to blame for your accident, and they will gather evidence in support of your claim. Of course, the amount of compensation you’ll receive depends on how severe your injuries are, what impact this has had on your life and any loss of earnings suffered due to time off work.
