What Our Clients Say
How JMW Can Help You Claim
JMW Solicitors will do their utmost to help you to secure compensation following an injury or accident at work. As well as being experts in personal injury, we are recognised for providing exceptional service and handling all claims cases with care and dedication.
Our legal experts have handled scaffolding injury claims involving the following:
- Weak or damaged planking
- Objects falling off scaffolding
- Insecure, or not enough, bracing
- Adverse weather conditions
- Loose guardrails
We will ensure that the compensation you receive accounts for not only the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of your accident, but also that your out-of-pocket expenses, such as travel costs, and any time you have taken off work, are covered in your claim.
Who is Responsible?
There are many different parties involved in the erection of scaffolding, which can make it difficult to determine who is responsible for your injuries. The company in charge of erecting the scaffolding has a legal duty to ensure the structure has been put up properly and is safe to use, while it is the site manager’s responsibility to carry out a risk assessment to check for any potential hazards. The nature of your injury and the circumstances surrounding it will affect who is ultimately deemed responsible, so it's important to speak to a legal expert about your case as soon as possible if you want to claim.
Our solicitors can help you identify the responsible party so you can be sure that you are bringing a compensation claim against the right company or individual.
