Scaffolding is the Cause of Many Construction Site Accidents

Injuries due to falls at the construction site are becoming more and more common unfortunately. 

(from fredricksburg.com)

A worker suffered serious injuries Wednesday morning after he fell from scaffolding inside a Stafford County water tank off Garrisonville Road, Fire Chief Mark Lockhart said.

The man, who is employed by a county contractor, landed on scaffolding below him and had to be lowered about 150 feet to the ground by emergency personnel, Lockhart said. The fire chief did not know how far he fell, though he said it could have been 10 or 20 feet.

It would appear that this fall may have been as simple as an unforeseen accident, but that does not mean that the employee isn't eligible for compensation. Unless there was foul play suspected (by the employee's part), most injuries occurred while on the job are eligible for workers' compensation.

You might actually be surprised to find out that your injury is eligible for workers' compensation. The best thing you can do is call Eric, Randy, and Sarah and let us help explore your rights with you. Call us at 515-225-4485 and let's begin the process together.
