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.
