Scaffolding Accidents

Las Vegas Scaffolding Accident Lawyer

Representing Clients Injured in Scaffolding Accidents and other Construction Accidents

Scaffolds are a common piece of construction equipment. In fact, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), approximately 2.3 million construction workers (65 percent of the construction industry) work on scaffolds on a regular basis.

Unfortunately, scaffolds are also responsible for a large number of construction accidents. Scaffolding accidents can occur for a number of reasons, such as:

  • Improper use of scaffold

Construction Workers Injured in Scaffolding Accidents

If you are a construction worker who was injured in an on-the-job scaffolding accident, you are generally entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Under Nevada workers’ compensation laws, injured workers are able to recover a percentage of their pre-injury wages for any work-related injuries or illnesses. Because Nevada law places a number of legal requirements on injured workers regarding medical treatment and the workers’ compensation claim process, it is highly recommended that you consult with a knowledgeable Nevada workers’ compensation lawyer like those at Robert M. Apple & Associates.

Depending on the circumstances of the scaffolding accident, injured construction workers may also be able to recover money damages in a third-party lawsuit as well. For instance, if the accident was caused by a defective scaffold, the scaffold manufacturer could be liable for any injuries and damages in a product liability lawsuit.

Bystanders and Pedestrians Injured in Scaffolding Accidents

In some situations, non-construction workers – such as motorists, bystanders, pedestrians, and bicyclists can be injured in a scaffolding accident. In these situations, the injured party can pursue legal action against the general contractor, scaffold manufacturer, and/or other negligent parties.
