Scaffold Accidents The Lawyers You Need & Deserve

Chicago Scaffolding Collapse Accident Lawyers

Scaffolding is an integral part of many construction projects. It allows workers to have a stable platform for working at heights. However, as with any work that happens at height, there is a risk of serious injury should anything go wrong. There are various laws that govern scaffolding implementation and use such as:

  • OSHA
  • BOCA
  • Chicago municipal codes

Even with these laws and the best practices that scaffolding installers and workers rely on for safety, accidents still happen, including:

  • Scaffolding collapses
  • Falls from scaffolding
  • Being struck by objects falling from scaffolding
  • Plank slippage

Determining who is liable for your injuries after a scaffolding accident can require a thorough investigation that looks at the scaffolding installers, foremen, general contractors, subcontractors and safety managers.
