Ladder Accidents

In construction, ladder accidents are often one of the main sources of the most serious injuries to workers, due to the number of blows and physical injuries they can cause, depending on the magnitude of the accident and the height at which the victim is located.

According to data from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the number of worker fatalities from falls from ladders each year is usually very high, reaching a peak in 2007, when a total of 835 deaths from falls in construction were recorded.

Workers who often work on ladders on a construction site must be provided with the appropriate safety equipment to avoid serious injuries in the event of falls, which in some cases can even be fatal.

What can be the causes of ladder accidents?

There are many hazards in a construction site that can lead to accidents that can be serious and cause serious injuries to workers.

Some of the most common causes of ladder accidents are:

  •         Stairs in poor condition or with factory defects.
  •         Lack of an appropriate security system.
  •         Lack of proper worker training.
  •         Weather factors that may affect the work.

Each of these factors can lead to ladder accidents occurring on a construction site, resulting in serious injuries to the workers involved.

Can I receive compensation for ladder accidents?

All workers who suffer an accident in construction, including ladder accidents, are protected by the workers’ compensation law, which states that every employer must guarantee workers access to fair compensation when they suffer an accident in the workplace.

In this sense, if you are the victim of a construction ladder accident, you have every right to receive compensation that will allow you to cover each of the expenses that usually arise after an accident.

To ensure that you receive your compensation, the advice of a construction accident lawyer is essential. Contact us at 1800 201 1220 and get the advice you need to follow the right legal path for your case.

What does ladder accident compensation cover?

A ladder accident compensation can help you cover various expenses that arise after suffering a ladder accident injury, which can often take a heavy financial toll on your pocketbook.

 Some of the aspects covered by ladder accident compensation are as follows:

  •         Specialized medical care.
  •         Reconstructive surgeries.
  •         Prescription drugs.
  •         Lost wages due to the accident.
  •         Temporary or permanent disability.
  •         Pain and suffering.

Each of these aspects can be covered by compensation. It is important to make sure you have adequate evidence so that, if necessary, you can file a claim with an accident lawyer to receive the benefits that apply to your situation.

What should I do if I have a ladder accident?

Initially, concern for your health is paramount. Therefore, if it is within your means, seek immediate medical attention so that a health professional can assess your condition and the extent of the injuries you have sustained.

After this, report the accident to your boss. In this way, he will be in charge of communicating with the corresponding insurance company, and thus initiate the process of delivery of your compensation as soon as possible.
