Scaffolding Accidents

Scaffolding failures and ladder accidents cause serious injuries and deaths each year in residential renovation and construction site accidents. Tragically, these are also among the most preventable accidents that can occur. The truth about scaffolding and ladder accidents is that they are almost always caused by negligence, knowing violations of safety regulations, or failing to meet industry and OSHA standards.


The Law Offices of Richard C. Woods is a Massachusetts law firm concentrating in personal injury law and on handling complex tort litigation in the state and federal courts. Examples of accidents involved in the firm's work include: scaffolding failures caused by not securing the scaffolding to the building or securing it improperly; scaffolding collapses caused by the use of substandard or poorly maintained scaffolding equipment; injuries and deaths caused by falls from ladders that violate OSHA regulations or industry standards.


The Law Offices of Richard C. Woods knows that it is virtually impossible for contractors to comply with all of the state and federal regulations they are required to follow. We will personally manage every aspect of preparing and presenting your case in court.


The firm welcomes inquiries about its practice and offers free consultations in personal injury concerns. All cases are handled on a contingent fee basis; you pay no attorneys' fees unless we areĀ able to obtain compensation on your behalf.
