The Doan Law Firm Scaffold Accident Lawyer Team Stands Ready to Fight for Justice for You
Approximately 2.3 million workers in the construction industry utilize scaffolds with regularity, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Thousands of other hard working men and women use scaffolding in other occupations as well. Additionally, every day people from all walks of life come into contact with scaffolding associated with construction, maintenance, and other projects.
Of the more than two million people in the construction industry who use scaffolding, about 4,500 are expected to sustain injuries this year alone. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, nearly all of the accidents causing these injuries are avoidable and occur due to the negligence of a party that typically is not the worker. The same holds true for injuries sustained in other industries and by passersby and others injured in scaffolding incidents.
