Obtaining Fair Compensation For Those Injured In Ladder And Scaffolding Falls

Injuries sustained from ladder and scaffolding falls are very serious and often deadly. They occur commonly in the construction industry and during the course of employment. If you or a loved one was injured or killed in a ladder or scaffolding accident at work, you have legal rights and options for seeking compensation.

Having a skilled attorney is crucial to the success of your case. At Zumbado & Associates in Hampton, New Hampshire, our experienced ladder and scaffolding falls lawyers represent people who have been injured in workplace injury accidents. We offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case and explain your rights.

Construction Injury Accidents

When an accident occurs in the scope of employment, an injured worker can seek benefits under workers' compensation.

Workman's comp can cover costs such as medical bills, prescription costs and vocational rehabilitation. Employees that recover under workers' compensation cannot make a personal injury claim against their employers.

However, an injured employee can file a personal injury claim against negligent third parties (nonemployers). For example, if the ladder or machinery was faulty due to a product defect, the injured worker could make a third-party liability claim against the manufacturer.

Injuries can include:

  • Spinal cord/back injuries
  • Brain/head trauma
  • Broken limb/fracture
  • Severed limb/amputation
  • Catastrophic injuries such as paraplegia, quadriplegia
  • Death

Many of these injuries require years of rehabilitation, which can be very costly. If your loved one died as a result of their injuries sustained from a ladder or scaffolding fall, we may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf.
