Minnesota & Nebraska Construction Fall Injury Attorneys
Most scaffold accidents are not classified as accidents. In fact, they are considered preventable occurrences that a contractor or an employer neglected to prevent. At Hunegs, LeNeave & Kvas, we are dedicated to holding the parties responsible for scaffolding falls accountable for their negligent actions. We do this by filing a personal injury claim against the responsible parties so that they can be required to pay compensation to the victim or the victim’s family.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a scaffolding fall, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the parties responsible for the accident leading to the fall. Our law firm has a 75-year history of representing individuals in their personal injury cases so that they can receive the funds to pay for their medical expenses, lost wages, loss of support, pain and suffering, funeral expenses, and other applicable costs.
Advising You Of Your Options
When an employee is injured on the job or they are killed, the worker or the grieving family is referred to workers’ compensation for benefits. However, work comp benefits are quite limited and will not provide accident victims with the money needed to pay the bills, nor the family with the compensation they need to replace the loss of support.
If a scaffolding fall was caused by the negligence of others, our attorneys are able to file a personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death claim against the responsible party. The majority of scaffolding accidents are caused by negligence in the following ways:
- Planking supports give way due to being weak or improperly placed
- The scaffold is not properly secured
- The scaffold design or materials are defective
- Lack of safeguards, such as fall protection and railings
- Objects are dropped from a scaffold onto a person standing below
Successfully Recovering Full And Fair Compensation
