New Jersey Scaffolding Accident Attorneys
The fact that scaffolding is so commonly used in construction work takes the risk of injuries in the construction workplace to new heights. Statistics indicate that over 10,000 construction accidents result from problems with scaffolding construction or upkeep annually. Sadly, many of these injuries could be prevented, and are ultimately precipitated by construction companies cutting corners and taking shortcuts in the use of scaffolding on the job site. Therefore, employers and third party contractors are often responsible for the injuries or deaths that affect construction workers and their families when scaffolding accidents occur. Due to the heights involved in working on scaffolding, these types of accidents can have devastating effects, and may cause workers serious injuries, require long courses of medical and/or rehabilitation treatment, or even cause the death of a loved one.
