If that equipment is unsafe, improperly assembled or lacking the necessary safety features, falls from height can lead to serious injuries. If you have suffered a construction site injury, contact any of our New York offices as soon as possible.

Due to the reliance of ladders and the quick pace that construction work moves at, it is not uncommon for workers to suffer a fall from height. There are numerous factors that might lead to a ladder accident, including:
- Faulty material in the construction of the ladder
- Unstable ladder rungs
- Metal fatigue
- Using ladder on an unsecured surface
- Lack of safety harnesses
A ladder fall can result in broken bones, multiple lacerations, back strain, head injuries or spinal cord damage. Any of these injuries can lead to lost wages, exorbitant medical bills and financial peril. Contact a lawyer at our firm to learn more about your options for monetary compensation.
