Construction Worker Falls From Unsafe Scaffolding

    Construction Expert WitnessThis case takes place in South Carolina and involves a man who was injured falling from scaffolding which allegedly had inadequate safety measures in place, with improperly fitted rivets that could not sustain the structure. The scaffolding was used by a general contractor for the construction of a high rise building. The plaintiff fell from the scaffolding, which lacked a number of essential safety features. The injuries he incurred have now made him incapable of working and making a living. This case required an expert who understands scaffolding safety and the necessary standards and procedures required to maintain a safe environment when scaffolding is involved.
