New Jersey Scaffolding Accident Lawyer
Fighting for NJ Scaffolding Accident Victims
Many scaffolding and ladder accidents are caused by negligence on construction sites. It is imperative for construction companies to follow OSHA and other workplace safety regulations that are in place to keep workers safe. These safety regulations cover suspended and supported scaffold types as well as aerial and scissor lifts.
Unfortunately, many construction site accidents and industrial injuries in New Jersey are caused when construction companies ignore safety rules to maximize profits, putting workers at risk. At Keefe Law Firm, our attorneys are dedicated to assisting the victims and families of scaffolding and ladder accidents recover the compensation the law entitles them for their injuries. Whether you have suffered a serious injury, or you are seeking compensation for the loss of a loved one, our attorneys will aggressively pursue your claim to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
OSHA workplace safety regulations have an entire section devoted to the prevention of scaffolding and ladder accidents. The routine failure of contractors to follow these regulations may lead to catastrophic or fatal injuries.
Common Scaffolding Dangers
According to OSHA, there are several inherent dangers when working on or around scaffolding at construction sites:
- Falls from elevation or high heights, due to the lack of fall protection protocols and equipment.
- Collapse of the scaffold caused by instability or overloading.
- Being struck by falling tools, work materials, or debris.
- Electrocution, due to the proximity of the scaffold to overhead power lines.
Our attorneys, paralegals and investigators know how to examine and analyze construction accidents. We are skilled at documenting, providing hard evidence and demonstrating how the failure to follow OSHA and other safety practices caused the injury to insurance companies, in settlement negotiations and at jury trials when litigation is necessary.
