Falls from Scaffolding and Ladders Require an Experienced Workers’ Comp Attorney
Falls from scaffolding and ladders can occur on a construction site without any warning. A workplace fall can lead to serious injuries, including broken bones to traumatic brain injury. In extreme cases, a worker can die from the fall, leading to a wrongful death lawsuit.
At the Eichholz Law Firm, we are prepared to represent workers who have been injured due to falls from scaffoldings and ladders. These types of accidents tend to occur where multiple contractors are on site. While one contractor may be responsible with providing workplace safety, the other employees and contractors may not be. We may be able to help you pursue a third-party claim.
