Scaffolding Accidents

On construction sites, there are many potential hazards for workers, including scaffolding and ladders. Scaffolding accidents can cause serious injuries that keep construction workers from returning to their jobs and supporting their families during the recovery process. Dealing with insurance companies and employers can make the situation even tougher, especially if they are refusing to provide the benefits you deserve.

At the Law Offices of Wesley M. Malowitz, I can provide the assistance that you need if you have been injured in a scaffolding accident on a Connecticut construction site. Having provided representation since 1991, I know how to help you receive proper medical care and compensation for medical expenses and lost wages. My firm will help you explore what options you may have.

The Causes Of Scaffolding Accidents

Scaffolding is commonly used by roofers, painters, siders, window washers and construction workers for a variety of jobs.

Common causes of scaffolding accidents may include:

  • Improper assembly of scaffolding
  • Improperly secured work platforms and missing pieces
  • Scaffolding is not properly braced
  • Product defects
  • Negligent actions of other construction workers

While federal safety regulations and Connecticut laws are meant to protect workers, management does not always provide proper safety measures for people working at high elevations. By working with an attorney, you can ensure that your rights are protected.
