What Happens If I’m Injured Falling From A Ladder
- Most often at construction sites, workers are seriously injured due to falls from ladders or any other type of elevation.
- Due to the fact that that type of work is very dangerous, especially when you are working at a height; the labor law of the state of New York protects workers who have fallen from heights.
- It is very important to get a photograph of the ladder that you fell from if possible so that the attorney can see.
- If you think that you may have contributed to the fall, don’t think that you don’t have a case because unless you solely caused your own accident in its entirety, the labor law will protect you.
