Fighting for Victims of Scaffolding Accidents.

Scaffolding Accidents

When you’ve been seriously injured in a scaffolding accident, workers’ compensation will not be enough to cover your harms and losses, loss of income and enjoyment of life, and life-long care needs.

Scaffolding accidents come with their own set of rules and regulations, and many incidents occur due to negligent maintenance, supervision, and inspection of work sites. That’s where we come in. We’re experienced in the intricacies of these complex issues and have recovered millions for clients injured in scaffolding accidents.

Our Firm’s Core Values

Our Approach

As soon as we take on your case, we pour everything we have into securing the outcome you deserve.

While most firms would hold out for a report from your employer’s insurance company or wait six months for Cal-OSHA, we head straight to the site of your scaffolding accident to begin working. We know that faulty equipment, including scaffolding, is often quickly removed so work can resume, and evidence of negligence or defects can be destroyed in the process.

With scaffolding, every single footing, bolt, cross bar, and nail with wire to the structure plays an integral role in the overall rigidity and stability. Examining the scaffolding immediately following an incident is critical. As such, we arrive on the scene as soon as possible with cameras and experts at the ready.

After our on-site investigations (which can require multiple visits over several days), we return to the office and begin assembling your case. We’re just as thorough with our case-building as with our in-person probing.

When the situation demands it, we’ll even hire third-party engineers, architects, contractors, and safety experts to provide expert opinions on your incident. Working with such professionals can require substantial capital, but we don’t shy away from investing in specialists or anything else that can support your case.

Insurance companies know that certain law firms get more and more desperate for settlement, the closer they get to trial. Unprepared to take the case the full distance, these firms lose leverage as trial approaches. As a result, their clients do not get full and fair justice for their injuries.

The opposite is true when SHK is on the case. As a trial firm, we hold all the cards as trial draws near. We have done the work. Our experts are retained and ready to testify. We are trial-ready. There is no need – and no pressure – to accept a lowball offer. This gives us the upper hand and leverage to obtain the maximum value prior to trial. If we do settle before trial, we settle for full and fair justice–not discount justice.

The numbers don’t lie: our outstanding jury verdicts have paved a pathway for excellent settlements. And since we are willing to finance a case all the way through trial, you will not have to accept an unfair payout for your injuries.
