According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), nearly 2.3 million construction employees work on scaffolding on a regular basis. In fact, most construction site injury lawsuits involve ladders and scaffolding accidents. If a construction accident is the result of an employer’s or co-worker’s negligence, the company may be legally accountable for the victim’s personal injury. Likewise, if a foreman fails to enforce federal or state safety law among his or her workers, the foreman and the company are liable for any injuries that result.
