SCAFFOLDING & LADDER ACCIDENTS

SCAFFOLDING & LADDER ACCIDENTS IN OCALA

TURN TO A SKILLED OCALA INJURY LAWYER

Construction workers face danger every day. The workers know that and they accept it. What they do not and should not accept, however, is negligence on the part of equipment manufacturers or untrained people. Scaffolding collapses and ladder falls are two of the most common construction site accidents.

The injuries that result from these accidents are usually serious, including potential spinal cord injuries,paralysis, and even brain injuries. If you were injured or lost a loved one in a ladder or scaffolding accident, Steven Wingo, Attorney at Law can help you get the compensation you need and deserve.

SCAFFOLDING COLLAPSES, LADDER FALLS & THIRD-PARTY LIABILITY

The most important—and often most complex—thing to do after a scaffolding or ladder accident is to investigate the event and find out what parties may be responsible. This is important because even though workers’ compensation will cover some of your expenses, it probably is not enough to cover everything. Using more than 15 years of legal experience, Attorney Steven Wingo can unravel the situation. If someone other than your employer—perhaps a contractor or the scaffolding manufacturer—is responsible, the firm can pursue a third-party liability claim to recover just financial compensation.

Mr. Wingo handles all types of ladder and scaffolding accidents that occur:

  • Scaffold erected without proper railings
  • Defective ladders or scaffolding components
  • Improper loading of ladders or scaffolding
  • Lack of fall protection
  • Lack of proper ladders
  • Inadequate anchoring
  • Inadequate or missing decking
  • Inadequate safety warnings
