Charleston Scaffolding Accident Lawyer

Helping Victims of West Virginia Scaffolding Accidents Recover Compensation

If you or a loved one have been injured in a scaffolding accident, workers’ compensation may not be your sole source of recovery. If the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit.

At Warner Law Offices, PLLC, our lawyers have decades of experience holding employers and contractors accountable when their negligence causes a worker to be injured. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Who Was at Fault in a Scaffolding Accident?

Workers’ compensation pays benefits regardless of who was at fault for the accident. When filing a personal injury or wrongful death case, however, it is important to determine who was at fault. Personal injury law is based on negligence.

While employers are generally protected from being sued by employees for on-the-job injuries, you would have the right to sue your employer in West Virginia in cases of deliberate intent. You would also have the right to sue a third party, such as the company that manufactured or installed the scaffolding.

The following are examples of negligence in scaffolding accident cases:

  • Scaffolding collapses
  • Failure to install tie-downs
  • Failure to provide safety harnesses or nets
  • Scaffolding that is defective or improperly installed

The sooner you contact our attorneys, the sooner we can investigate the causes of the accident and determine who is responsible. In some cases, more than one party may be liable.

Filing a personal injury lawsuit will allow you to collect compensation for damages that are not covered by workers’ compensation, such as pain and suffering. Our lawyers will coordinate your workers’ compensation and personal injury claims, so you recover the maximum compensation from all sources.
