Scaffolding is used at job sites in Atlanta and throughout Georgia. Painters, brick layers or people doing repair may work from scaffolds or staging.  These may be used at bridges or for sandblasting.

Most scaffolding accidents occur when the planking or support structures give way, or when a worker falls or is struck by a falling object. In some cases, a worker may not have received proper safety equipment to prevent falls. These construction site accidents can lead to brain injuries, paralysis, spinal cord injuries, and internal injuries. Even after multiple surgeries the victim of a scaffolding accident may never fully regain the ability to return to work or live independently.

In any workplace accident, the injured employee would be entitled to workers' compensation benefits (medical expenses and wage loss). But you should ask other questions. Was the scaffolding defective? Did someone other than your employer (such as a subcontractor) act negligent and cause the scaffold accident? If the accident was linked to a negligent act by someone other than your employer, you may have grounds to pursue a personal injury liability claim, or a third party claim.

Scaffolding accidents can be complex

Nearly two-thirds of construction workers work on scaffolding regularly, and scaffolding-related accidents account for thousands of injuries every year. Because multiple parties are usually involved, these cases can be legally complicated.

As with other accidents that may involve a third-party claim, a scaffolding accident can have complex legal rulings regarding who is responsible for workplace safety and for compensating an injured worker. We urge you to contact our experienced attorneys before you sign any insurance documentation about your injury.
