Kent Scaffolding Injury Attorneys

Fighting For Scaffolding Accident Victims in Washington

The Puget Sound region has seen its share of crane injuries resulting from negligence in recent years. One of the most notable, the 2006 Bellevue crane that collapsed and fell on an apartment building killing a Microsoft attorney who lived there. As a result of this negligence and others, in 2007 Washington passed one of the nation’s toughest crane safety laws.

In Washington, workers injured on the job are generally entitled to worker’s compensation benefits. If the accident is caused by a third party, such as the manufacturer of a defective crane, they may also be entitled to recover against such company. Those who are not workers, such as innocent bystanders, may bring a lawsuit for their damages against those legally responsible for causing injury.

Common Injuries in Scaffolding Accidents

When injuries occur because of a collapsed scaffolding or man lift, or if an injury occurs from a crane accident, the injuries are often devastating. Injuries often include:

Unfortunately, death frequently results from these types of accidents.

When death occurs, the impact on the loved ones left behind is permanent. There is a loss in love and affection. There is also a financial impact due to the loss in income that the deceased would have otherwise provided. While the loved one can never be replaced, it’s important that the survivors be fairly compensated for their loss.

If you’ve been severely injured, this can also be a tremendously difficult time for you and your family. You will likely not be able to work for some period, and your future ability to work in your current occupation may be in doubt because of your injuries. However, medical bills, house and auto payments, and other normal expenses continue.

It’s important, therefore, to understand exactly how your injuries will affect your future income and, if you’re the breadwinner, for your family and loved ones who may be counting on you.

We understand. We know what is at stake for you and your family, and will fight tirelessly to achieve the best results possible.
