Injuries in Scaffolding and Ladder Accidents

Some of the most serious types of construction accidents involve injuries that occur because a worker falls from a great height. Falls often take place while a person is working on a ladder or scaffolding, and they can result in traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or bone fractures. A collapsing ladder or scaffold can also cause injuries to other workers or pedestrians due to falling objects.

In many cases, scaffolding or ladder collapses occur because of defective equipment. Manufacturing defects may cause ladders to be structurally unsound, or scaffolds that have not been properly maintained may not be able to hold the necessary weight. Collapses can also take place because equipment was not assembled correctly or because an employer did not make sure the proper safety procedures were followed. Workers may also be injured if a vehicle or construction equipment collides with a ladder or scaffolding, or defects in the structure of a building may increase the risks of fall injuries.

Construction workers who are injured while on the job will usually be able to receive workers' compensation. These benefits will cover the costs of medical care needed following an injury, and they may also address a person's loss of income due to a temporary or permanent disability. Victims may also be able to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against an employer who acted negligently by failing to follow the proper safety procedures or provide the necessary protective equipment. Third-party claims may also allow a victim to recover compensation from others who may have been responsible, including a product liability claim against the manufacturer of a defective ladder or scaffold or a premises liability claim against a property owner who did not address hazards that affected the safety of workers.
