Phoenix Scaffolding Accident Lawyer
Understanding Scaffolding Accidents & Your Rights
Scaffolding is a temporary platform constructed in order to reach high places to complete the construction, maintenance, or repair of a building. Due to the hazards workers face while working on or near scaffolding, Arizona sets certain safety laws designed to prevent injuries. These laws are regulated by the Arizona Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Among other precautions, Arizona OSHA often requires workers to have scaffolding training and certification. Arizona OSHA also specifies the types of material that can be used to construct the scaffolding, such as certain kinds of lumber, if not steel. Based on the design weight limitations may apply, and regular checks are required to ensure the structure is in good condition.

Scaffolding accidents and injuries can almost always be avoided when construction sites are in compliance with OSHA regulations. When they are not, the general contractor and subcontractors on the job site may be held liable for injuries to workers. It requires an understanding of the Arizona OSHA code and frequently a construction accident expert to determine who was responsible for erecting and maintaining the scaffolding under Arizona OSHA standards.
Common Scaffolding Injuries
Scaffolding accidents account for roughly 50 site deaths and 4,500 injuries each year. These accidents cause physical and emotional damage (often permanent), as well as devastating financial harm.
Construction workers and passersby may be at risk of suffering the following scaffolding injuries:
- Broken bones
- Severe disfigurement
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
You Deserve Fair Compensation
While every case is different, compensation for injuries may include:
- Medical expenses
- Short- and long-term rehabilitation
- Loss of wages
- Pain and suffering
- Mental health counseling
