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.
If you are overwhelmed with the challenges involved in pursuing a claim for your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses, turn to the New York City construction accident attorneys at The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C.
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.
