Causes of scaffolding accidents
Throughout the UK there are an estimated 2.3 million workers which use scaffolding equipment to allow employees to reach difficult, high places. Unfortunately around 4,500 people are involved in a scaffolding accident every year. Scaffolds can be particularly dangerous when they are improperly used or if they are poorly constructed.
Scaffolding injuries can also arise during construction, if scaffolding is not properly installed it can cause the structure to collapse, injuring all those beneath.
Some of the causes of scaffolding injuries which can lead to many victims making a case include the likes of:
- Falling from high level work areas
- Being caught on insecure bracing
- Another employee loosing concentration or showing a clear lack of attention to safety
- Slips, trips or falls
- Being struck by a falling object
Grieves have the necessary skills and expertise to advise you on your compensation claims as well as the amount of compensation you could be eligible to receive.
What will the compensation cover?
Employers have a legal duty to protect their employee’s safety while using hazardous equipment such as scaffolding. If they neglect your safety and you have suffered a serious injury as a result you may be entitled to seek compensation.
Financial compensation is awarded to help victims who have lost money due to their injury, covering the cost of:
- Rehabilitation costs
- Medical bills
- Loss of work earnings
