One Injured in Hollywood Scaffolding Collapse
Los Angeles, CA – One person was injured, and a taxicab was crushed after a scaffolding collapse at a construction site near the intersection of Highland Avenue and Leland Way. The crash happened around 2:15 p.m. on Monday, September 26, 2022.
A worker was on the scaffolding at the time of the collapse and was transported to the hospital with injuries. The investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing.
Falls from scaffolds and ladders account for nearly half of all injuries on American construction sites. In this accident, those injured should have their investigative team perform an independent legal investigation to preserve evidence. This includes reviewing:
- Evaluation of construction site working conditions
- Evaluation if construction site safety regulations are up to code
- Determination why the scaffolding collapsed
- Any environmental factors that may have caused the collapse
- Determination if proper guardrails, safety nets, and fall arrest systems were in place
Construction companies and supervisors have a responsibility to ensure all safety measures are in place and guidelines are being followed.
