On construction sites across Southern California, scaffolding accidents are far too common and often have results that are serious or even fatal for workers. In some cases, these accidents are caused by negligence and violations of federal and state safety regulations by property owners, construction firms, contractors and site supervisors. Injured workers may be able to pursue compensation for medical bills and other expenses from those who are responsible for causing their accidents.
At the law office of Lauby, Mankin & Lauby LLP, our attorneys understand how devastating a scaffolding accident can be for a worker and his or her family. We provide effective and knowledgeable litigation services for individuals, contractors and insurance companies who are involved in construction accident claims. Throughout Southern California, we have built a strong reputation for helping injured clients and families recover the compensation that they need.
There are a variety of reasons as to why scaffolding accidents happen on construction sites. Workers may fall off of scaffolding, which is often erected at great heights. Scaffolding may collapse if it is not designed or constructed properly. Debris and equipment may fall off of scaffolding and hit workers and others who are walking below. Scaffolding that is not sufficiently inspected or maintained may also have problems that result in accidents.
Our firm has considerable experience handling construction accident claims, and by thoroughly investigating your accident, we can determine how it was caused and who should be held liable to pay for your benefits.
