Causes of injury following a Scaffolding Accident

Throughout the UK there are an estimated 2.3 million workers who use scaffolding equipment to allow employees to reach difficult, high places. Unfortunately, around 4,500 people are involved in a scaffolding accident every year. Scaffolds can be particularly dangerous when they are improperly used or if they are poorly constructed.

Injuries can also arise during construction. If scaffolding is not properly installed, it can cause the structure to collapse injuring all those beneath.

Some of the causes of injuries which can lead to many victims making scaffolding accident compensation claims include the likes of:

  • Defective Scaffolding
  • Improper Scaffolding Construction
  • Inadequate Scaffolding Maintenance (or Failure to Replace Old Scaffolding)
  • Weak or Inadequate Planking
  • Inadequate worker training
  • Working with untrained, inexperienced or negligent co-workers
  • Working in Hazardous Conditions

Grieves Solicitors have the necessary skills and expertise to advise you on your case as well as how much you could be eligible to receive in.

We work on a no win no fee basis.

Scaffolding injury compensation claims - What will it cover?

Employers have a legal duty to protect their employees' safety while using hazardous equipment such as scaffolding. If they neglect your safety and you have suffered a serious injury, as a result, you may be entitled to seek compensation.

Scaffolding accident compensation is awarded to help victims who have lost money due to their injury, covering the cost of:

  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Medical bills
  • Loss of work earnings

It is also given to support victims who may have suffered physiological or physical damages as a result of their injury which can include pain, loss of enjoyment or mental distress.

How much will I get for a Scaffolding Accident Claim?

The amount of money you receive for your Compensation settlement award for an injury sustained due to an accident involving a scaffold collapse or a fall from scaffolding will differ based on a number of different variables from case to case.

The most important aspects for the courts to consider are the degree of injuries suffered and the extent to which your injuries will influence your ability to make a full recovery, lead an independent life and return to work.

Compensation awards comprise two elements:

  • General Damages - to compensate for the loss of amenity, pain & suffering
  • Special Damages - to compensate for financial losses or future costs incurred as a direct result of the injury

Our Accident at work Compensation Calculator will provide provisional guideline figures on how much compensation you may receive for the 'general damages' element of the final compensation award.
