Construction workers have dangerous jobs. When you think of all of the dangerous equipment used by construction workers - such as cranes, scaffolding, and motor vehicles - ladders may not come to mind. However, construction worker ladder accidents are common and can result in significant injuries.

Ladder falls are a common cause of work injuries in New York and New Jersey.Some of the injuries that can result from a ladder fall include:

•    Tailbone injury
•    Knee injury
•    Ankle injury
•    Spinal cord injury
•    Traumatic brain injury
•    Broken bones
•    Internal Injuries
•    Death from fall injuries

A fall from a ladder can result in immediate pain or gradual discomfort that just doesn’t go away. Since some of these serious injuries do not result in immediate pain, it is important to always see a qualified medical professional as soon as possible after a construction accident. Attorneys in New York and New Jersey recommend that you seek emergency care if you have any immediate concerns about your health.

If you’ve been hurt by falling off of a construction ladder or in any other type of construction accident, then you may be entitled to damages.
