Brooklyn Ladder Fall Attorney

Pursue Compensation for Your Damages

Ladder falls can cause serious and even life-threatening injuries. If you have been injured when falling off a ladder, you should contact a Brooklyn construction injury law firm to discuss filing a lawsuit. If your fall was caused by negligence on the part of your co-workers or your employer, you may be entitled to compensation. One of the experienced Brooklyn construction accident lawyers with Belushin Law Firm can help you get the maximum settlement for your pain and suffering through personal injury lawsuits.

There are many different types of ladders that can pose a danger to construction workers. Ladders used in the construction industry include sectional ladders, fixed ladders, roof ladders, cat ladders, bridge ladders, and extension ladders. Construction workers often need to work on parts of a building or structure that are elevated from the ground, thus requiring ladders. Workers who are at risk for ladder falls include painters, roofers, builders, and commercial construction workers.

Hold Negligent Construction Companies Accountable

Companies are required by law to follow certain safety standards when it comes to the use of ladders. The angle of the ladder has to be a specific angle based on the height of the ladder. Workers may also require additional safety gear such as harnesses when they are scaling tall ladders. Stabilizers and standoffs may also be required for ladders of a certain height. If these safety protocols are not met, there are many different ways that ladder falls can occur. Mechanical failure of the ladder can cause a serious fall, as can a person or vehicle striking the ladder from below. If another person’s negligence caused your ladder fall, you have a right to compensation for your injuries.

The most common type of injury from a ladder fall is some sort of traumatic injury. When a body falls to the ground, the impact can damage bones, muscle systems, and even internal organs. It is not uncommon to see serious bruises, lacerations, contusions, and broken bones from a ladder fall. In addition, there can also be serious injury to the back, neck, and head. Depending on the angle at which the body struck the ground and the height at which the body fell from, a ladder fall can cause paralysis, traumatic brain injury, or even death. If you or a member of your family have sustained any kind of injury from a ladder fall, you should meet with a Manhattan construction accident lawyer to discuss a possible lawsuit.

Understanding Ladder Fall Injuries in Brooklyn

Brooklyn is a bustling borough with a significant amount of construction activity. From the high-rises in Downtown Brooklyn to the brownstones in Park Slope, construction workers are constantly at risk of ladder falls. The New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) enforces strict safety regulations to protect workers, but accidents still happen. If you’ve been injured in a ladder fall, it’s crucial to understand your rights and the resources available to you.

Utilizing Deep Local Insight & Experience

One common pain point for Brooklyn construction workers is the high density of construction sites, which increases the likelihood of accidents. Navigating the busy streets and tight spaces can make it challenging to maintain proper ladder safety.
