Injuries from a ladder fall can have serious, life changing repercussions. Watch this video to learn about ladder fall injuries and how we can help.
One of the more common situations that clients come to us for when they’re involved in construction accidents is a fall from a height and more specifically, a fall from a ladder. This could be any type of ladder, whether it be an A-frame ladder, or a ladder that rest across a building. Often clients don’t know that there are certain expectations and responsibilities, not just of their employer, but also the general contractor and the owner to ensure that not only are you using a proper ladder that’s allowing you to do your job, but also whether it’s being held by someone else, and whether the rubber feet are in place. There are a lot of things that are expected when you have a situation where you’re using a ladder.
Should you be injured in such an accident, your claim gives you these extra protections in the state of New York because it’s considered a height-related incident. Due to that, you have extra protections, and extra layers of entities that may be responsible. This is something that we’re able to assist you with in helping you prosecute your claim.
