More about scaffolding injuries

If you have suffered scaffolding injuries due to a fall or faulty aluminium scaffolding, then you may be eligible to make a compensation claim. Scaffolding is designed to remain in use temporarily when constructing new buildings or when repairing existing ones. Scaffolding structures enable workers to reach heights that are not usually reached and is the best alternative to using ladders to scale the heights during construction. However, accidents can and do, happen.

If you are injured because of an accident that involves cheap scaffolding from a hire company, talking to an injury compensation claim solicitor would be the most appropriate thing to do. This is exactly what Tylers Solicitors does, so if you call us (freephone) on 0800 699 0079, then we can help you to make your compensation claim.

There are many ways which scaffolding accidents occur and the structure can be very dangerous if not constructed in the safest way possible. It’s imperative that someone with extensive experience erects the scaffolding because it can collapse and cause serious injuries, especially if you fall from a great height. Using unsuitable or damaged bolts is also another common reason why scaffolding structures collapse. Even if a small part of the structure comes off, the damage which it can do to a person is huge. This is why it’s advisable for workers on the site to be provided with quality protective equipment to protect them against potential injuries. Second hand or for hire scaffolding are also generally worn and sometimes not looked after.

Laws that Guide Scaffolding Tower Injury Compensation Claim

There are several legislations in place to offer guidance to injured persons who have sustained injuries because of falling structures in construction sites. Some of these laws include work height regulation, personal protective appliance regulations and the provisions as well as the use of building appliance regulations. Experienced solicitors can provide superb legal advice to any injured person because they have a clear understanding about what legal procedures should be taken and the amount which should be asked for in compensation when making a scaffolding injury compensation claim. By working with a reputable solicitor, you stand better chances of getting fairer compensation for the suffering which you have undergone after falling from a high scaffolding structure or after being hit by a falling piece of the structure.
