Scaffolding can be found on most construction sites, serving as a useful piece of equipment that allows workers to perform their respective jobs at varying heights as well as supporting construction equipment. This, unfortunately, also places those same workers at risk of an injury should the scaffolding collapse beneath them, injuring anyone on or beneath it.
If defective or improperly installed scaffolding has injured you, the responsible manufacturer or individual may be liable for your financial compensation. A Birmingham personal injury lawyer of Yearout & Traylor, P.C., is ready to protect your rights with professional legal representation and informed legal advice.

Common Scaffolding Injuries
Scaffolding might collapse for a number of different reasons, such as manufacturer defects and careless installation, but almost always results in severe injuries for those working on or around it. A few of the injuries that a person might sustain include:
- Bruises and sprains
- Cuts and lacerations
- Broken bones
- Traumatic head injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Permanent paralysis
Collapsed scaffolding is very likely to cause injuries to multiple people, and when it is caused by careless manufacturing or negligent installation, the responsible company or individual should be held accountable to the victims.
If you were injured on or by scaffolding due to someone else’s negligent actions, a Birmingham accident lawyer of Yearout & Traylor, P.C., may be able to help you hold that individual liable for the compensation you need.
