Falls from ladders and scaffolding are common causes of injury on a construction site. At Goldschmid, Silver & Spindel, we represent workers who have been and suffered back and neck injuries, broken bones and other injuries in such mishaps. Whether you are filing or appealing a workers’ compensation claim, seeking damages in a lawsuit or just want to talk to a legal expert about the options available to you, our attorneys with a combined 150 years of experience will listen carefully and explain your options in a free consultation.

Was a third party responsible for your fall?

If you were injured in a fall, you probably know that you can file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, which provides medical care, a portion of lost wages and other benefits, such as disability payments. But if someone other than your employer contributed to your accident, that person or company may be liable. Sometimes that third party may be an equipment rental company or a manufacturer.

If your injury is the result of a ladder fall, a third party could be liable if the ladder:

  • wasn’t well-maintained
  • didn’t meet the proper weight or duty requirements
  • wasn’t the right tool for the job, such as a ladder that was too short or lacked a needed platform or handrails
  • was defective or damaged
  • was unstable
  • was made of conductive materials (such as metal) and was used near power lines

We are experienced at investigating the specifics of ladder accidents and can determine whether you have a remedy against the ladder’s manufacturer or supplier, along with any other third parties involved.

Common injuries resulting from ladder and scaffolding falls

Falls can cause serious injury to those working in high places. Common injuries from construction accidents range from disabling fractures to contusions resulting in head, back and neck injury to abrasions and lacerations or a combination of these injuries.
