Scaffolding & Ladder Accidents
If you were injured or if someone you loved was killed in a scaffolding accident, please contact the dedicated Springfield workers’ comp lawyers at Kanoski Bresney. Since 1979, our firm has been providing experienced, dedicated and effective representation on behalf of injured workers and their families.
In addition to handling workers’ compensation cases for injured workers, we represent pedestrians who have been injured as a result of a scaffolding collapse. We handle all scaffolding, ladder and related construction accident claims, including:
- Falls from ladders and scaffolding
- Scaffolding collapses
- Injuries from falling objects
- Injuries to pedestrians
Workers’ Compensation And Personal Injury Claims
Almost all construction injuries are covered by workers’ compensation. In certain circumstances, however, injured workers may also obtain compensation through a personal injury claim. If retained to handle your case, we will pursue all available means of recovery on your behalf. To do so, we examine the facts of your case:
- Did a scaffolding collapse occur as a result of someone not following the rules or Federal guidelines?
- Did faulty materials or equipment cause a structural collapse?
- Did an accident occur as a result of a property owner’s negligence?
We will explore these and other issues to determine if you have a basis for a third-party liability claim or product liability claim (types of personal injury claims that may be available in addition to a workers’ compensation claim).
Kanoski Bresney is the largest personal injury law firm in central Illinois. Our attorneys have obtained more than $400 million in compensation for accident victims and more than $100 million for injured workers.
