Falling off a ladder is one of the most common types of manufacturing and construction accidents. Workers who fall several stories can experience temporary, permanent and sometime life-threatening injuries. If you or your loved one fell off a ladder while working, obtain experienced legal counsel. Injured workers are entitled to workers' compensation benefits, yet workers with legitimate claims are often denied the benefits they are entitled to receive.

Securing the Full Amount of Compensation of Injured Construction Workers
If you were injured while working at a construction site, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. This sounds straightforward, but the benefits you are entitled to, vary greatly depending on the type of injuries you have suffered on the job. Our law firm's New York City work injury attorneys will consult your doctor to understand the type of temporary or permanent injuries you have endured from the work-related ladder fall, such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Broken bones and joint injuries
Frequently, you will be entitled to workers' compensation benefits and will also be eligible for a personal injury claim.
Whether you will be out of work temporarily or have suffered a career-ending injury, we want to make sure you recover the right level of compensation. This is a highly complicated area of the law. The benefits you are entitled to will depend on the extent of your work-related injuries and whether or not you can continue working. We know how to help you navigate through New York's workers' compensation system in pursuit of the full amount of medical benefits and lost wages you are entitled to recover. Our law firm will also help you pursue additional compensation through a personal injury claim, if a contractor, subcontractor or another third-party can be held responsible for causing the ladder accident.
