Scaffolding Accidents Can Lead To Serious Injuries
For construction workers and other employees in Charlotte and throughout North Carolina, scaffolding accidents are all too common. Victims of these types of injuries have the right to seek workers’ compensation benefits.
Unfortunately, workers’ compensation insurance companies often take every opportunity to deny, delay or minimize benefits. In order to make certain you get everything you are entitled to, you should enlist the help of a lawyer. At Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler in Charlotte, we have decades of experience successfully recovering benefits for people like you.
Types Of Scaffolding Accidents
Establishing the specific nature of the scaffolding accident may be important. Our attorneys have handled cases involving scaffolding collapses caused by defective and improperly assembled scaffolding. We have handled cases involving workers falling from scaffolding. We have handled cases involving workers being hit and injured by objects that fell from scaffolding.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits And Beyond
Employees injured on the job typically think of workers’ compensation as their only source of money to cover medical expenses and lost wages. However, for construction workers who have suffered scaffolding injuries, workers’ compensation may only be one option.
Our law firm features workers’ compensation lawyers and personal injury lawyers. We know that it is important to carefully investigate scaffolding accident claims to determine if there is third-party liability. This is when some party other than the employer was responsible for the accident. For example, a subcontractor working under a different employer than the injured party may have improperly assembled the scaffolding. In these cases, there is an option to file a personal injury claim. This is valuable because it may open the door to substantially more compensation than the benefits available through workers’ compensation.
