Injury Claims Resulting From Ladder And Scaffold Falls
From our decades of experience, we know that people who survive ladder and scaffolding accidents frequently suffer permanent disability such as brain injury or spinal cord injury. Our lawyers have the experience, resources and passion to take on these complex claims and get results for our clients.
In certain types of workplace injury cases, there may be multiple elements to examine. For example, if you fell from an extremely high ladder or scaffolding, was there additional safety equipment that failed and contributed to your fall? Was the ladder or scaffolding defective?
Workers’ Comp Or Personal Injury Claim?
One of the most important questions our attorneys ask people injured in ladder or scaffolding accidents is: “Were you injured while working?” If the answer to that question is yes, we will work to obtain the full amount of workers’ compensation benefits you deserve.
- If you were not at work when the accident occurred, we will investigate to determine if we may be able to file a personal injury claim against the responsible (liable) party. This could include the ladder or scaffolding manufacturer or the company that erected the scaffold.
- Workers injured in work-related accidents may also be able to pursue a personal injury claim if the person or organization that caused the injury was not their employer or a co-worker. We will carefully analyze your construction accident case to determine the approach that is right for you.
