Recovering From Ladder Or Scaffolding Falls
Construction workers must often work in high places, including on rooftops, scaffolding and ladders. Falls from heights can lead to serious and life-altering injuries that make it difficult if not impossible to return to work.
The injury lawyers at Surdez & Perez P.C. routinely handle construction accident claims involving falls from heights, falling objects and other work hazards. We are a trusted source of guidance for injured construction workers, painters, window washers, electricians and others who must work in high places.
One of the most common causes of accidents on construction sites is ladder falls. Many times, negligence is to blame. Common causes of ladder falls include:
- Failure to secure the top and bottom of the ladder
- Failure to extend the top of the ladder above the top of the building or structure
- Manufacturing defects
- Faulty rungs
New York labor laws offer special protections for workers injured in scaffold collapses, ladder falls and other workplace accidents involving erected structures. We are here to make the law work for you, so you can obtain full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered due to an on-the-job fall.
