Scaffolding Accidents & Injuries
Unsecured scaffolding poses a safety hazard to both site workers and surrounding pedestrians. Scaffolding firms must ensure their equipment is well maintained and erected by adequately trained staff to ensure the safety of themselves, those who will use the scaffolding as a work platform, and passers-by.
Responsibilities to secure scaffolding include:
- Ensuring proper construction and fixings to ensure stability
- Adequate maintenance to ensure, for example, no missing boards or side rails
- Ensuring that access is restricted at the end of a work period or if the site is left unattended, for example, by removing ladders or ensuring they are blocked
- Checking for damage after strong winds
If scaffolding is unsecured then various injuries can occur either from falling items (including parts of the scaffold itself), or as a result of preventable accidents e.g. falls from height.
If you or a loved one have suffered an injury as a result of poorly erected or unsecured scaffolding please Contact Us for a free no obligation discussion about how to proceed with your claim.

Independent reviews from our CLIENTS
I am writing to you personally to say thank you to Attwood's for a job well done with my recent claims. It initially started out as one claim, but eventually became a little more complicated when another was added following a review of my condition by one of your dental experts. Throughout the last couple of years as the claim has progressed I have been fully supported by your colleague Luke Taylor. I have thanked him personally for all the good work and support he gave me over the last couple of years, it was quite a journey for both of us but with the right outcome, but I just wanted to also highlight to yourself the good service and support he provided me with. It was very much needed and appreciated. He has always been very professional and the advice he has given has always been with real feeling and thought, and not the "just my job" attitude. Even when I was very wary of what to do next, he always explained it in simple terms for me understand and move forward. If I ever need similar help in the future, your company will be the first I contact. With my sincere appreciation and regards.
I contacted Attwood Solicitors requesting that they represent me. Their response to date has been way beyond my expectations . They have provided a comprehensive and professional service at every stage, with a dedicated member of staff as my contact.
All my queries and issues have been resolved very efficiently and you have always contacted me back when promised. I have certainty felt you have been acting on my behalf and would like to thank you for that. Once again we would like to convey our sincere thanks to you and would have no reservations recommending you to anyone else – you have been a star
