Construction workers use scaffolding to work from elevated heights on the repair of windows, bridges, and other projects that are not accessible from the ground. Scaffolding, a structure that is built specifically for this purpose, is meant to support workers and their tools when completing maintenance on up-high buildings.
The delicate balance that exists on a scaffold can be compromised if someone involved in the production or maintenance of the structure is negligent in their responsibilities. These at-fault parties can be liable to an injured employee .

Determining the Cause of a Scaffolding Accident
Scaffolding must be properly built and maintained to support workers in the way it is meant to. A scaffolding accident can often be attributed to design issues, a lack of frequent inspections, or inappropriate use. Every person who was responsible for some component of the construction and utilization of the scaffold could be liable for an accident if their negligence contributed. Our Rhode Island attorneys have the resources that are necessary to evaluate your case and determine the cause of your injuries.
