Did You Suffer A Scaffolding Injury On A Construction Job?
Construction sites are among America’s most dangerous workplaces. Every day, workers put their jobs and lives on the line when they work high up on scaffolding, ladders and other elevating devices. Serious workplace injuries can happen when workers fall while trying to reach a work area.

We also represent workers injured in wall and roof collapses and by falling objects. If you were injured by a lift bucket, crane or a collapse, we will seek out every party that shares fault and aggressively fight for compensation on your behalf. We regularly advise clients on Pasadena scaffolding accidents and can help you understand your rights to compensation.
When Employers Are Responsible For An Accident
Construction companies are responsible for creating a safe and secure work environment for their employees and those who are working on the job site. This means the owners, managers and foremen need to comply with state and federal safety standards.
Proper, well-maintained equipment should be provided. All hazards that can be prevented – such as falls or electrical shocks – should be. Those in charge of the site need to maintain a log of the safety steps taken and of any injuries that have happened on the site to workers. In some cases, companies have tried to cut corners in order to speed up the process or save on cost. When they cut out safety measures or use substandard equipment and a worker gets hurt, the owners need to be held accountable.
