Orange County Scaffolding Accidents Lawyer
Scaffolding Accidents in the Workplace
Scaffolds are used in many types of businesses, from construction sites to painters, roofers, window washers, and other related industries. Generally, scaffolding is safe to use but can become unstable if not put together properly or if poor maintenance on it has resulted in rotting planks or broken railings. Regardless of the cause of a scaffolding accident, if you have been injured on the job from a fall or impact of some sort on scaffolding you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. An Orange County workers’ compensation attorney from the Pacific Attorney Group can meet with you in a free initial consultation to discuss the facts of your accident and provide you with the legal advice you need to ensure you pursue the benefits you are entitled to.
Injuries from Scaffolding Accidents
Scaffolding is normally used for a work platform to use at high altitudes, to have a stable work space while in a precarious environment. Unfortunately, these don’t always end up this way, with high winds sometimes swinging scaffolding wildly or a sudden collapse resulting in a fall from a great height. Injuries from this can include broken bones, internal injuries, neck and back injuries, and even death. It is important to have a legal representative protecting your interests, especially when serious injuries are concerned.
If these injuries have affected your ability to support your family in the future, your workers’ compensation benefits must reflect disability, rehabilitation or vocational training to allow you to perform some other type of work in the future. Our office will ensure your treatment and other benefits are properly compensating you for all of your losses. Don’t risk your future without the benefit of someone working for you throughout your ordeal.
