Scaffolding accidents are all-too-common on construction sites throughout the United States and like many types of "accidents," these worksite incidents are often preventable. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has put into place specific scaffold regulations that are intended to reduce or eliminate scaffold accidents from occurring.
OSHA scaffolding regulations include extensive requirements related to size, design, building materials and use of a scaffold. Listed below is a very brief overview of the OSHA scaffolding regulations:
If your scaffolding accident occurred because of a manufacturer defect-such as a scaffold that wasn't constructed to withstand the required amount of weight-you may be able to file a product liability claim against a negligent third party. A product liability claim or personal injury lawsuit may help you to collect the compensation you need in order to pay your medical bills and make up for lost wages suffered after a scaffolding accident.
