Injured In A Scaffolding Accident?

Whether you were injured by falling off of a scaffold, falling on a collapsing scaffold or by being struck by a collapsing scaffold or falling debris, you can hold a negligent party responsible to compensate you. You most likely have a workers' compensation claim if you were injured in a scaffolding accident on the job in Connecticut. In addition, you may file an injury claim or lawsuit if a person or entity other than your employer was negligent. The negligent party may have been a:

  • Subcontractor whose actions led to the scaffolding collapse or accident
  • Company responsible for erecting or inspecting the scaffolding
  • Outside entity, such as a driver of a truck that collided with scaffolding, making it fall on you or making you fall from it

Like many serious fall injuries, a fall from scaffolding often results in serious or catastrophic injuries such as a spinal cord injury or a head injury. Pursuing all available compensation is a challenge — a very worthwhile challenge. You are likely to need lengthy hospitalization, acute medical treatments (such as surgery), ongoing follow-up medical treatments and a lengthy recuperation.
