Scaffolding Accidents

In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania there are always many commercial, residential, and industrial construction projects going on. Business owners renovating their building, new buildings being erected and residential neighborhood construction are all examples of these projects. While maintaining an existing structure or building a new one is good for economic and financial reasons it also presents a chance for severe personal injury. Scaffolding accidents are very common on construction sites. They can ultimately result in minor, severe and even fatal injuries for workers and other victims. A work injury that is due to a scaffolding accident should be handled by an experienced Workers’ Compensation lawyer in the area of Pennsylvania.

Causes Of Scaffolding Accidents

Scaffolding accidents can be caused by a variety of reasons. Some are related to human error and carelessness. Others may be attributed to faulty equipment assembly or defective products. Common causes of scaffolding accidents include:

  • Falling debris
  • Falls
  • Negligent maintenance or inspection
  • Poor or improper assembly
  • Scaffolding collapses

Injuries Suffered In Scaffolding Accidents

Scaffolding accidents present a wide variety of injuries. The severity of the injury is often times directly related to how high the scaffold is setup and how the accident occurred. Common injuries can be bruises, lacerations and soft tissue injuries. More severe falls or accidents may end in broken bones or fractures, and head, neck and spinal cord injuries. Very severe accidents may ultimately result in paralysis or wrongful death.
