Seattle Construction Site Roof Fall Attorneys
The Washington Administrative Code is detailed and specific with regard to legal use of scaffolding. Chapter 296-874 spells out requirements for contractors who use scaffolding at construction sites. For example, the law specifies that scaffolds should be properly designed and constructed. They should be erected, moved, altered and dismantled by experienced, trained employees. They should be properly planked or decked. The ends must be stabilized. Access to the scaffolds, including stairs and handrails, must be safe and meet certain requirements.
Did your employer or the general contractor cut corners or neglect required safety precautions before the scaffolding accident? A detailed investigation by industrial experts and an insightful analysis by an experienced personal injury attorney may provide answers — and keys to recovery of compensation from negligent parties.
Seattle Construction Site Roof Fall Lawyers With an Aggressive Approach
Kraft Palmer Davies, PLLC, a prominent King County ladder fall injury claim law firm, represents people injured in all types of construction accidents, including falls from scaffolds, roofs and ladders.
Falls from heights at a construction site or elsewhere may involve other types of apparatus, such as ladders. The Washington Administrative Code, along with other legal guidelines such as Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, clarify expectations for use of ladders at job sites, whether they are construction sites, factories or warehouses.
Falls also occur when roofers or maintenance crews working on roofs do not have proper fall protection — harness and rope or strap, securely anchored. Whether you were injured in a fall from a roof, a ladder or a scaffold, talk to an attorney with experience handling complex personal injury claims and lawsuits.
