Causes of Injury

The majority of construction workers in the UK use scaffolding and, providing it is used safely, suffer no injury. However, accidents do sometimes happen when the scaffolding is defective, unsafe or if safety procedures are not followed. These accidents can have serious consequences, causing severe injuries or even death.

You can make a claim for compensation if any of the following resulted in your injury:

  • Weak or damaged planking
  • Objects falling off scaffolding
  • Insecure, or not enough, bracing
  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Loose guardrails

Pursuing a claim with our solicitors following an accident on scaffolding will ensure you secure the compensation you deserve.

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.

Our solicitors can help you identify the responsible party so you can be sure that you are bringing a claim against the right company or individual.
