Hire a Lawyer to Represent You in Scaffolding Accidents

Construction workers are often involved in risky situations that could lead to injury or death. When construction is being performed, pedestrians can often be put in harm’s way. Many construction workers perform tasks on scaffolds including window washers and painters too. These scaffolds range from simple platforms to complex structures which when they’re not secure, construction workers can fall from dangerous heights and suffer catastrophic injuries. When this occurs, you need the ability of a highly-rated Pennsylvania attorney to represent you during this challenging time.

Importance of OSHA Standards

OSHA standards are required to regulate the use of scaffold ties, base plates, mud sills, side brackets, guardrails, toe boards, and fastening pins, among other facets. Omitting any of these parts is a violation of standards and can lead to accidents and injury. Most scaffolding accidents could have been avoided with proper care. The most common causes of scaffolding accidents are improper construction, lack of safety features, defective equipment, and negligence in failing to provide proper maintenance.

How a Personal Injury Lawyer in Philadelphia Can Help

Most construction workers believe that can’t file a legal claim against a negligent party if they’re receiving workers’ compensation. However, this only prevents you from filing a claim against your employer. This third party, whether a delivery driver or a contractor, can be held liable for your injuries in a scaffolding accident. If you or a loved one have been injured due to a scaffolding accident, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney to help you in pursuing your case in Philadelphia.
