Scaffolding Accidents Lawyers in Beaumont, Texas
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.
Who Is Liable for a Scaffolding Accident?
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.

- Brain injuries

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.
