New York Ladder Fall and Broken Bones Attorney
A Construction working man or woman in a variety of occupations rely on ladders to perform their tasks. Construction workers frequently use ladders in the course of their workday. Ladders are a routine part of a painter’s job as well. Any time any person is working while on a ladder, it is crucial that the ladder is in proper working order and is properly secured.
When a ladder is not in proper working order or is improperly secured, any person working on the ladder could fall and sustain severe injuries. These injuries could include head injuries, back or neck injuries, broken bones or other life-changing injuries.
Often, these injuries can require extensive medical treatment, especially when ladder falls happen at large heights. It can be challenging for you and your family to pay for medical bills and other expenses while you are unable to return to the job. Our attorneys at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP (‘Mlawfirm’) have worked with a wide range of construction related accident victims, including those who have fallen from ladders and scaffolding in New York. Our firm’s lawyers have the courtroom experience to stand against any firm in the nation, and will do everything necessary for maximum recovery.
Your Rights after Ladder Fall Accident
One of the most important, and often one of the most complex, parts of any case involving a construction accident is determining the responsible parties. Typically, the construction worker’s employer may be held liable in a ladder fall. Our firm is also able to handle workers’ compensation claims in a timely manner for our clients.
In addition, we will look to see whether other people may be liable after a ladder fall, such as a general contractor, property owner, product manufacturer or another party whose negligence contributed to the accident. We will look to see if these parties followed regulations with regards to the ladder and equipment in question.
Even a broken bone can make it difficult to work and live normally, while more severe injuries can require a lifetime of care. Work with a personal injury lawyer who has your best interests in mind.
