The key is proving that another party’s negligence caused the accident. The only way to prove this is to have the case evaluated immediately by an experience scaffold accident lawyer.
Who Can Be Held Responsible in a Scaffold Accident Lawsuit in Pennsylvania?
In the case of a scaffold accident, a worker may recover against a non-employer such as a scaffold supplier or manufacturer. In addition, an innocent bystander who was injured in a collapse situation has potential claims against those responsible, such as:
- the general contractor in control of the construction/work site,
- the scaffold supplier,
- the scaffold manufacturer,
- and more.
It is vital to have the case reviewed by an experienced and knowledgeable scaffold accident lawyer in Pennsylvania. Be sure to discuss the lawyer’s experience with scaffold accidents.
