Ladder Falls in New York

Ladder accidents can lead to devastating back, head, neck, and spinal cord injuries. On top of that, falls can often result in sprains, fractures, and broken bones from a worker trying to essentially catch their fall. Any worker who performs regular job duties from a ladder or must climb to excessive heights is at risk for suffering fall injuries. The good news is that you have legal options if you have been hurt in such an accident.

Ladder Falls & Your Rights to Compensation

If you are a qualifying worker, any injuries you suffer while on the job will be covered by workers’ compensation. However, these benefits often don’t even begin to cover the extensive damages such as pain and suffering and long-term loss of earning potential in which injuries tied to ladder falls can result. This is why pursuing a third-party claim when possible is often in the best interests of the worker.

You will need to do the following after your accident:

  • Investigate the incident to determine responsible parties
  • Identify any faulty equipment or safety violations
  • Gather any necessary evidence to support your claim
  • craft a strong injury lawsuit or workers’ comp claim

When you come to our firm, we can handle every step for you so your case is handled correctly and effectively. Our construction accident lawyers in New York City get to work right away determining if a general contractor, property owner, product manufacturer, or any other party contributed to your accident in some way. From there, we begin to collect evidence to strengthen your claim and get you the fair outcome you deserve.
