North Carolina Ladder & Scaffolding Fall Lawyers

Serving Catastrophically Injured Workers Since 1997

Construction workers, roofers, window washers, and a variety of other workers across a broad range of industries are required to climb ladders and scaffolding on a regular basis. This puts them at risk of serious falls when safety precautions are not properly followed or when the equipment is defective.

At Lanier Law Group, we have seen firsthand the life-altering effects of these accidents. Our North Carolina ladder and scaffolding accident attorneys are equipped to assist you with your claim. Whether you wish to pursue compensation through the state’s workers’ compensation system or via a third-party work injury claim, we can help you understand your legal rights and work to build a solid case on your behalf. Our goal is to help you secure the compensation you are owed.

Common Injuries Caused by Ladder & Scaffolding Falls

Over the course of our practice, we have found that ladder and scaffolding accidents often cause catastrophic injuries. If you or someone you love sustains a life-altering injury from a fall, our workplace accident attorneys can help you work to recover fair compensation.

Here are the types of injuries often caused by ladder and scaffolding falls:

  • Head injuries: One of the worst injuries a person can endure is a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Whether caused by a fall or a falling object, TBIs can cause permanent disability and, in some cases, death.
  • Neck injuries: In some fall accidents, it is the neck that suffers trauma. Even a relatively minor neck injury can cause lifelong pain and limited mobility. A serious neck injury can cause paralysis or death.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Slipped discs, pinched nerves, and fractured spines are all conditions that can be caused by a fall. Serious spinal cord injuries can lead to partial or total paralysis.
  • Broken bones: Broken bones are common in ladder and scaffolding fall accidents. While medicine has come a long way, complicated breaks still may lead to disability.

When you need help getting compensation for your work-related injury, Lanier Law Group is here for you. Our legal team has fought for the rights of injured workers and their loved ones across the state. We understand the processes involved in obtaining workers' compensation and pursuing third-party claims, and we are eager to provide you with skilled representation.

We Can Come to You

We understand that catastrophic injuries can be debilitating. Because of this, our North Carolina ladder and scaffolding fall lawyers are happy to come to you in the hospital or at your home if your injuries prevent you from making it into one of our offices. We offer legal services in English and Spanish, as well as contingency fees—if we don’t recover compensation for you, you don’t pay.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
