Scaffolding accidents are typically the most severe hazards located on a construction site. Workers who are often many stories above ground are completing dangerous construction projects on scaffolds, lifts and ladders. Injuries, or even death, can occur as the result of a fall from defective, improperly installed or unsafe scaffolding, or even from equipment falling on workers from scaffolding.
Scaffold-related injuries can severely limit a person’s ability to lead a normal life, and they may require extensive rehabilitation and medical treatment. Workers’ compensation benefits can help families through this financial hardship, but it may not be enough.
