Saltz Mongeluzzi Barrett & Bendesky's team of scaffolding accident attorneys have extensive experience successfully representing construction workers who have been catastrophically injured or killed in scaffolding accidents.

An estimated 2.3 million construction workers, or two-thirds of the industry, work on scaffolds - and each year an estimated 4,500 are injured and 60 die as a result of scaffolding accidents.

SMBB's scaffolding accident attorneys have repeatedly represented victims of the most common types of scaffolding accidents:

  • Falls from elevation, due to lack of fall protection
  • Collapse or tip-over of the scaffold, caused by instability or overloading
  • Being struck by falling tools, work materials or debris

Scaffolding Accident Expertise

Extremely familiar with OSHA safety standards, when a serious scaffolding accident occurs SMBB attorneys ask the right questions:

  • Were all workers properly trained?
  • Was the scaffold:
    • Properly installed and secured to the building?
    • Erected with secured, adequately load-bearing planks?
    • Inspected before each shift?
    • Equipped with guard rail fall protections?
