The Team You Need for the Results You Deserve Kansas City's Leading Medical Malpractice & Serious Personal Injury Firm

Scaffolding & Ladder Accident Attorneys in Kansas City

Serving the Injured Victims of Construction Accidents

Construction workers in Missouri and Kansas often have to use scaffolding to perform their work. Unfortunately, when scaffolding collapses or when a worker falls from scaffolding, it can result in serious and life-threatening injuries. Workers who are injured often need compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses that come along with such serious accidents.

Here at Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., we have the experience to handle scaffolding accidents and other construction accidents. We have successfully resolved accident cases involving a variety of scaffolding, including scissor lifts, suspension scaffolds, and mobile scaffolds.

Talk with us about your accident by scheduling a free initial consultation with our firm. Call us at (816) 484-3776 to make an appointment.
