Framingham MA Ladder and Scaffold Accident Lawyers

Scaffolds and ladders are for temporary use in construction work, by bricklayers, painters, electricians, and others. But many of the injuries suffered when these structures collapse are permanent. Scores of families lose a loved one to these accidents each year: the most common fatalities in construction accidents in Massachusetts involve falls.

Scaffolds may be erected on the ground or hang from the top of a building. Hydraulic lifts are also used to support workers. Unfortunately, tragedy strikes when they collapse due to:

  • Defective design, manufacture or assembly
  • Support failure
  • Bracing not attached securely
  • Plank slippage
  • Rotten sole boards
  • Inadequate duty for intended weight
  • Welding defects

Weather conditions, especially in winter, make work on scaffolding, ladders and roofs extremely hazardous. Ice, slippery footing, and poor visibility increase the danger. Safety measures should be taken to minimize injury in case scaffolding or ladders do fall.
