A: Scaffold accidents commonly occur due to negligent construction, and proving negligence means having the case investigated by a knowledgeable work accident lawyer with experience handling scaffold accident cases.
While it is ideal to have the scaffold examined after the accident to determine exactly what caused the accident, in many cases, this is not possible. However, this does not mean there is no proof of negligence. Oftentimes, negligence can be proved through circumstantial evidence such as eyewitness testimony.
In many scaffold accident cases, proving how the accident occurred, i.e., topple situation or collapse, will be sufficient. In some cases, an engineer may be needed to examine the evidence in the case and provide a professional opinion as to what caused the scaffold accident to occur.
