Failure to adhere to
the strict guidelines of OSHA can lead to scaffolds that
are unsafe. Therefore, failing to abide by the
regulations results in absolute liability, even if the
workers own negligence contributes to the accident.
Many scaffold accidents could have been prevented if the
builders of the scaffold paid more attention to the
guidelines of OSHA. As mentioned,
scaffolding accidents often result from negligent
construction and maintenance. Most injuries are caused
by either planking or support giving way, a worker
slipping, or a worker being struck by a falling object.
Personal injury can
occur in many different ways on a scaffold. The
following is a list of the more common mishaps that lead
to scaffold accidents:
Improper installation can lead to collapsing
Jumping on scaffold can lead to collapsing
Unskilled construction can lead to dangerous
Improper use of the scaffold
Defective components used in the building of a
scaffold can make it highly susceptible to collapsing
In court, the scaffold
owner will have attorneys that will try to refute and
devalue your case. Having a scaffold accident attorney
on your side will help fight and counter the testimony
given by the accused.
