Scaffolding is needed in most construction projects. Scaffolding allows construction workers to safely reach upper levels without the use of a ladder. When the scaffolding is not secure, workers and pedestrians are at risk of serious injury.
At the Law Office of Brock Duke, we don’t undermine the issues of scaffolding collapsing. For those families who been affected by serious injuries resulting from faulty scaffolding, our team of seasoned lawyers will work diligently to get you compensation, and above all, the treatment you deserve.
Scaffolding Collapse Accidents
Scaffolding can collapse. Often times, the collapse occurs when workers are standing on the scaffolding and people are standing below it.
The following are examples of various scenarios that can cause a scaffolding collapse:
- Defective Safety Systems
- Defective Brake on Suspended Scaffolds
- Improperly Secured
- Failure to Properly Inspect
- Lack of Maintenance
- Old Materials
- Badly Constructed Scaffold
Scaffolding equipment requires a plethora of maintenance and care. At times, construction companies will rush through their work if they are juggling too many tasks.
If this happens, others may be susceptible to injury. This is unacceptable especially if the scaffolding were to fall. The scaffolding is responsible for the safety and lives of many individuals. Too many people are at risk if it fails.
