Rhode Island Scaffolding Accident Attorneys

Schedule a Free Consultation with our Construction Accident Lawyers

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 .

The Rhode Island lawyers at Decof, Barry, Mega & Quinn, P.C. can help you build a case for recovering compensation in the event of a scaffolding accident. Call (401) 200-4059 or schedule your free consultation on our website.

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.
