Scaffolding Accidents

In spite of requirements by the Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to follow strict safety protocols on construction sites, construction companies, contractors, subcontractors and third parties often fall short of those standards. Hard-working construction professionals and their family members are the ones who bear the brunt of this negligence when a worker falls from unstable or broken scaffolding.

Putting Clients First When Safety Comes Second

For a majority of construction workers, using a scaffold is part of their daily responsibilities. While inherent risks exist in scaffold work, outside factors can play a role in a dangerous and deadly fall, including:

  • Poorly inspected or uninspected scaffolding
  • Overloaded scaffolding
  • Scaffolding with manufacturing or design defects
  • Failure of specific scaffold parts
  • Lack of or defective safety equipment
  • Falling debris

With board-certified lawyers knowledgeable in OSHA, workers' compensation and third-party liability laws, Davie, Valdez & McElroy, P.C., can take on the most complex of scaffolding accident cases. Identifying the party responsible is the first step. From there, we fight to maximize compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Some workers cannot return to work and earning a living. Many families are left grieving the death of a loved one and facing an uncertain financial future. We understand that these types of injury claims combine legal complexities with emotionally charged issues. With compassion and dedication, we remain at the side of our clients while pursuing the best outcome.
