Both commercial and residential construction projects rely on scaffolding for multiple aspects of any job. If one person fails to take proper safety precautions, everyone on the site is at risk for a serious and potentially devastating accident. At the law offices of Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty, our Delaware scaffolding accident attorneys protect the rights of all injured construction workers.
If you have been seriously injured in a scaffolding accident, you want to make sure you have access to the medical care you need and financial compensation you deserve. In addition to your medical bills, you have to consider your lost wages. Working with accident reconstructionists and medical experts, our lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation into what went wrong in your accident.
Most scaffolding accidents occur because the scaffolding was not properly grounded. This can lead to falls for workers on the scaffolding as well as scaffolding tipping over, injuring both workers on top and people down below. With many chemical plants and refineries across Delaware, scaffolding are often used in a factory setting as well, where workers are exposed to additional risks in the event of a fall such as chemical exposure and burns.
While all workers are entitled to workers' compensation after a workplace injury, many construction workers can make an additional personal injury claim as well. If someone besides your employer or a co-worker was responsible for the conditions that led to your scaffolding accident, make sure you explore your full range of recovery options.Contact Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty
