Scaffolding Accident Claims
As with all working environments involving heights and construction, scaffolding carries a significant number of potential risks. Over two million construction workers regularly use scaffolding to reach otherwise inaccessible areas in the UK every year. Unfortunately nearly 5,000 are injured following accidents on scaffolding, with over 50 accidents resulting in fatality.
Employers have a legal obligation to ensure they provide the upmost safety and protection for their employees, especially when using hazardous equipment. Health and safety regulations require dangerous working environments to be well maintained and checked for potential risks as well as adopting necessary safety measures to prevent workers from being involved in scaffolding accidents.
However when these are neglected accidents can occur, and the employer can be held liable for compensation.
Our team of experienced solicitors have gained compensation for many victims of scaffolding accidents. We are based in the Birkenhead and cover cases for clients across the North West, including Liverpool, Merseyside and the Wirral.

Types of Scaffolding Injuries
Accidents from scaffolding are often serious, regularly resulting in broken bones and extended time off work. If you have suffered an injury that was not your fault then you could be entitled to damages to help ease financial pressures as well as compensate for any long-term physical or physiological effects.
We have dealt with a large number of accidents involving scaffolding, with previous clients often suffering due to:
- Inadequate health and safety procedures
- Heavy items falling from height
- Insecure or non-existent bracing
- Loose planking
- Poorly constructed scaffolding
