40-Year Track Record of Success

Scaffolding is commonly used to help construction workers get to hard-to-reach areas of a building site. However, despite its usefulness, scaffolding can be quite dangerous if set up improperly. In fact, scaffolding is responsible for thousands of construction site injuries each year.

If you were injured or a loved one was in a scaffolding accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation. At Dugas Law Firm, we are ready to help you get the justice you deserve, and we have the track record to prove it. We've recovered million-dollar settlements for our clients on more than 100 occasions. We know how to deal with insurance and go after negligent parties.

Determining Liability in Scaffolding Mishaps

In most scaffolding accidents, multiple parties are liable for the victim's injuries. This is because scaffolding is typically used by multiple parties who may not be communicating with each other effectively.

The liable parties in a scaffolding accident may include:

  • The scaffolding manufacturer
  • The scaffolding installer
  • The general contractor
  • The construction site's property owner

Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be able to sue one or all of these parties for damages.

If you were injured while on the job, your employer may also be responsible for your medical bills. In this case, your employer may file a workers' compensation claim to cover your medical expenses. However, this process may be difficult to navigate on your own. At Dugas Law Firm, we can help you file a workers' compensation claim and ensure that you receive the benefits you deserve.

Typical Injuries from Scaffolding Accidents

Scaffolding accidents may result in a variety of injuries, including:

  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Head trauma
  • Spine injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Amputation

These injuries may require extensive medical treatment and may have a lasting impact on the victim's quality of life. In some cases, these injuries may prove fatal.

Securing Compensation for Scaffolding Injury Medical Costs

If you were injured in a scaffolding accident and had to receive medical treatment, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills. Our scaffolding accident lawyers can help you prove that the liable parties were responsible for your medical expenses and that you have a valid claim for damages.

You may be able to recoup the costs of your:

  • Emergency room visits
  • Hospital stays
  • Surgeries
  • Physical therapy
  • Dental work
  • Prescriptions
  • Medical equipment

So whether your employer, construction site owner, manufacturer, or some other party was at fault, they should be responsible for paying for your damages.

Maximizing Your Recovery for Scaffolding Accident Losses

You should also be able to recover compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, disability, and more. To determine how much you may be owed in damages, we will evaluate your case and determine the liable parties' total liability. In most scaffolding accidents, multiple parties are liable for the victim's injuries. We can help you seek compensation from all liable parties.
