Scaffolding Collapse Attorney in Columbia

Scaffolding is a structure commonly used on construction sites to enable workers to operate at elevated levels. If you live in an urban area or work on construction sites, you are probably used to seeing scaffolding on the side of buildings all the time. These structures are useful, but they can also be extremely dangerous. When scaffolding structures are not properly assembled or secured, there is a higher risk that they will collapse. Workers rely on these structures to be stable enough to hold them and their tools up in the air while they work. If a structure were to collapse while they were working, the resulting injuries could be devastating. Not only does this present the danger of an elevated fall for the person on the scaffolding, but it also could mean falling tools and structure injuring surrounding workers or passersby.

If you have been the victim of injuries due to a scaffolding collapse, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries. Whether you are a worker seeking workers’ compensation, or a passerby seeking personal injury compensation, the legal process of filing a claim can be daunting and complex. The Columbia scaffolding collapse attorneys at the Goings Law Firm, LLC have the experience and knowledge needed to guide and represent you throughout the entire legal process. Our attorneys believe that no individual should have to suffer from the consequences of an accident that was no fault of their own, and we are dedicated to helping victims fight for the compensation they need.

    Resulting Injuries

    Construction worker employers, whether it is a construction company or property owner, have the duty of making sure workers are as safe as possible. This means making sure that areas are properly marked, tools are functioning, and scaffolding structures are assembled, secured, and maintained adequately. When scaffolding collapses, it is evidence that an employer has breached this duty and owes you compensation for the injuries incurred. Scaffolding collapse injuries can include but are not limited to, the following:

    • Broken or fractured bones
    • Brain or spinal injury
    • Lacerations or punctures
    • Paralysis
    • Death

    The injuries that occur as a result of a scaffolding collapse depend on many factors, such as the height of the scaffolding and material that fall. Victims of a scaffolding collapse may suffer beyond the physical pain. These individuals may also experience mental anguish and financial burden.
