It may seem to be easy to erect and use scaffolding, but there are thousands of accidents caused each year by those who do not know how to erect scaffolding safely.

A mobile scaffold is a type of freestanding independent scaffold. It is mounted on castors or wheels that swivel and allow the scaffold to be easily moved from location to location.

The length of your scaffolding accident compensation claim will vary depending on the severity of your injuries. If you have suffered only minor injuries and the insurer accepts responsibility for the accident then you may well be able to settle your claim in a matter of weeks. However, if you need private medical treatment this can prolong the claim as a settlement cannot take place before a full assessment of your injuries can be obtained.

Low prices from a scaffold company might mean that you will not get the service or safety that you require. This isn't always the case, but make sure that you research your scaffold company carefully.
