Scaffolding Accident Claims
If you have suffered an injury following a scaffolding accident, a compensation claim will ensure that your pain, suffering and any out of pocket expenses you’ve incurred, such as medical treatment and travel costs, are compensated. At JMW, our specialist team of solicitors is dedicated to making sure that the compensation personal injury victims deserve, is received. We are well known for being approachable, friendly and efficient, and clients have commented on our determination to get the right results for them.
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.
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.
We have years of experience in successfully helping workers secure compensation following an injury or accident at work. As well as being experts in personal injury, we are also recognised for providing an exceptional service and handling all cases with the care and dedication they require.
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 may have taken off work, are covered in your claim.
