Falling from heights is a common danger on construction sites. According to OSHA, falls are the leading cause of construction site accidents in the U.S. Despite this statistic and despite the risk of severe life-altering injuries, employers continue to fail to protect the safety of construction site employees.

Determining The Cause Of Scaffold And Ladder Falls
Have you fallen from a scaffold or ladder? Did a scaffold collapse? Do you have questions regarding the safety equipment or training you received regarding a fall? Did a careless co-worker destabilize something you were standing on, leading to your injury?
When representing victims of ladder and scaffold falls, we thoroughly investigate all of the circumstances of the accident to determine the cause of the accident and to identify liable parties. Our investigations may uncover evidence of unsafe work conditions such as the lack of safety equipment, including harnesses, netting and guard rails. Federal and Connecticut laws protect construction workers from dangerous work conditions. Our lawyers are committed to obtaining compensation for our clients while holding negligent parties responsible for their actions.
Compensation For Scaffold And Ladder Fall Injuries
If you have suffered a scaffold or ladder fall injury as an employee, you are likely entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. If your fall was caused by the negligence of a third party, you may be entitled to personal injury compensation as well. A third party would include a scaffold erection company whose negligence caused your injury, or any negligent party who is not your employer or a fellow employee.
Our firm has significant experience handling both workers’ compensation and personal injury claims, which allows us to pursue all potential sources of compensation for our clients’ injuries.
