Common Injuries From Ladder Falls
Workers who fall from ladders may suffer a range of injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Wrongful death
Whether your ladder fall was caused by a dangerous or broken ladder, a careless co-worker who failed to spot the work area, or another reason, our construction accident lawyers can help you seek maximum compensation for your injuries, lost wages and other relevant expenses.
Construction workers and certain independent contractors are covered under workers’ compensation insurance. Therefore, if you are hurt on the job, you are eligible to file for workers’ compensation benefits. Unfortunately, these benefits are not always sufficient to cover the full extent of your injuries. As your attorneys, we will thoroughly review your accident and identify all potential sources of recovery.
