Claims if you have been hit by falling scaffolding

The recent weather conditions have wreaked havoc throughout the UK and as such they have caused widespread damage and destruction to infrastructure, including many building sites where objects such as scaffolding have been dislodged. If you are unfortunate enough to have been in the vicinity when this has occurred then you could end up falling victim to a very serious injury, with you needing to undergo serious medical attention. If you have been struck by falling scaffolding and have been left to suffer the consequences, then making a claim could be the best option for you.

What situations might I be eligible to claim?

If you have been left with injuries as a result of falling scaffolding then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Some instances where you look to claim include:

·         Claims if you have been left permanently disabled

·         Claims if you are required to use a walking aid or wheelchair

·         Claims if you have lost a limb

·         Claims against a lack of health and safety warnings

·         Claims against negligent workmen.

Who could be at fault for your claim?

If you have been unfortunate enough to be struck by a falling piece of scaffolding in poor weather conditions then you may be entitled to receive a large compensation settlement. In cases such as this there are a number of people who could be held responsible, including the company or employee who erected the scaffolding. It is their job to ensure that the structure is safe and that appropriate actions are in place to prevent injuries from occurring, so if this has not been the case then you shouldn’t have to suffer.
