Many construction workers and employees at construction sites work on scaffolds. It’s important for injured workers to know about scaffolding accidents in Boston, Massachusetts since the state of Massachusetts has a statute that provides workers’ compensation benefits. Scaffolding accidents, since they often involve falls from high places or being hit by a falling object, can cause very serious injuries and sometimes even fatalities. The law firm of Kantrovitz & Associates, P.C. of Boston, Massachusetts has the experience you need to help you file your workers’ compensation claim.
What to Do If You’ve Been in a Scaffolding Accident
If you’ve been hurt while working on a scaffold, you need to learn what to do if you’ve been in a scaffolding accident. After you’ve been hurt, you must seek medical attention immediately. Even if the injury seems minor, see a doctor, because symptoms may show up later that require you to be off work or get further treatment, and this won’t be covered by workers’ compensation if you do not seek medical help in the beginning. Make sure that the doctor documents that your injury was related to the scaffolding accident. Document all conditions, like slippery floors or a faulty scaffold, and talk with any available witnesses. The law firm of Kantrovitz & Associates, P.C. of Boston, Massachusetts is equipped to fight for your workers’ compensation rights.
