Scaffolding & Ladder Injuries The Help You Need When You Need It Most

Nashville Construction Accident Attorney for Fall Claims at Work

Common Scaffold Accidents and Ladder Injures on Job Sites in Tennessee

Each year, numerous scaffold accidents and ladder injuries take place in Tennessee. For some construction workers, these falls off scaffolds and ladders cause serious and fatal injuries. An estimated 2.3 million construction workers, or 65 percent of the construction industry, work on scaffolds, according to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Nashville construction accident attorney Stanley A. Davis has years of experience representing construction workers who suffered injury or death in Tennessee scaffold accidents. His goal is always to gain the maximum compensation available. This may include workers’ compensation benefits or seeking third party claims against a responsible party other than the employer. His work includes a substantial $930,582.98 and lifetime of open medical benefits for a client catastrophically hurt on a construction site because of a negligent contractor.

Types of Scaffolding Accidents in Tennessee

Scaffold-related accidents account for about 4,500 injuries and more than 60 deaths each year. A U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics study found that 72 percent of workers injured in scaffold accidents involved the planking or support giving way, or the employee slipping or being struck by a falling object.

Due to the wide variety of potential accidents on construction sites, our law firm can help investigate claims related to a variety of scaffolding accidents caused by:

  • Defective scaffolding
  • Improper assembly
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Missing handrails
  • Unstable or loose scaffolding

Can Employers Help Prevent Ladder Injury Falls on Construction Sites?

Yes. To prevent ladder falls, employers should consider the following safety guidelines:

  • Plan the work to reduce or eliminate the need for using ladders by then finishing as much of the work as possible on the ground.
  • Provide safer equipment for extended work at an elevation, such as aerial lifts, supported scaffolds or mast climbing work platforms.
  • Provide properly selected and inspected ladders that are well-matched to employee weight, task and location.
  • Train employees about ladder safety.

Familiarity with safety regulations, such as recognizing ladder types and using ladder positioning, is crucial to reducing injuries from ladder falls on construction work sites.
