Scaffolding is an integral part of many construction projects. It allows workers to have a stable platform for working at heights. However, as with any work that happens at height, there is a risk of serious injury should anything go wrong. There are various laws that govern scaffolding implementation and use such as:
- Chicago municipal codes
Even with these laws and the best practices that scaffolding installers and workers rely on for safety, accidents still happen, including:
- Scaffolding collapses
- Falls from scaffolding
- Being struck by objects falling from scaffolding
- Plank slippage
Determining who is liable for your injuries after a scaffolding accident can require a thorough investigation that looks at the scaffolding installers, foremen, general contractors, subcontractors and safety managers.
