Falls From Ladders And Scaffolds

Aiding You After A Fall

Using a ladder or scaffold to reach heights is part of your job. You and your employer take safety precautions, but accidents still happen. You fell and now you are dealing with the aftermath. At Galanti, Patti, & Winterscheidt, P.C., our lawyers understand the impact a falling accident can have. We will work hard to protect your rights, and we will show you how to file your claim and secure appropriate medical care as you recover.

We excel at investigating work accidents, negotiating with employers’ insurance companies and litigating in court to aggressively safeguard injured workers’ interests…

Understanding The Seriousness Of Injuries

A fall from a ladder or scaffold can result in a disabling head injury; neck, back or spinal cord injury; knee or shoulder injury; or even wrongful death. Regardless of the cause of your accident, it left you enduring with financial, physical and emotional hardships. With decades of experience, we are ready to assist you. We have worked with injured employees that fell from ladders and scaffolds due to:

  • Improper construction
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Missing support pieces
  • Hazardous conditions
  • Malfunctioning pieces

A fall can put you out of work or disable you permanently, or it might have taken the life of your loved one. Our attorneys work with injured workers and surviving family members to collect the benefits they are entitled to.
