Scaffold & Ladder Injuries

Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Ft. Lauderdale & Hollywood, FL

According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) research throughout the years, faulty scaffolding and ladders are consistently one of the most prevalent dangers on construction sites. Falling from a considerable height after a scaffolding or ladder collapses in use is actually one of the top causes of construction worker death and disability. Construction companies and their insurers should be completely aware of the hazards scaffolding and ladders present on a busy construction site and willingly provide the injured workers’ compensation benefits.

Employer or insurer cooperation is not guaranteed, though. Many construction workers hurt in scaffold and ladder accidents struggle to get the workers’ compensation they deserve, either due to inherent complications with the workers’ comp process or the resistance of the parties that would pay out the claim. To ensure your claim is being created and respected correctly, team up with Rosenberg & Rosenberg, P.A and our Fort Lauderdale workers’ compensation attorneys.

Injuries Suffered in Scaffolding & Ladder Accidents

Any scaffolding or ladder used on a construction site needs to be sturdy and large enough for the task at hand. A defect in the design or build of the scaffolding or ladder can easily cause it to collapse as someone climbs atop it, especially if they are carrying heavy equipment. Yet a perfectly built scaffolding or ladder can still come apart unexpectedly, possibly due to the negligence of another worker, such as someone operating a crane and bumping into the scaffolding. The result can be a fall that leads to devastating injuries or death.

Severe injuries that could be suffered in a scaffolding or ladder accident include:
