A: Without proper safety precautions, a fall off of a ladder can result in serious injuries. The extent of the injuries depends on how far up the ladder you are when you fall, what part of your body hits the ground first, and the type of surface upon which you fall.
As a New York construction accident attorney, I've seen people suffer from spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and significant internal injuries after ladder falls. Many of these injuries result in time lost from work, and some of these injuries are incurable and life changing.
If you have been hurt by falling off of a ladder at a New York or New Jersey construction site, you may be entitled to damages for your medical expenses, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses and pain and suffering.
