Fall from Ladder Accidents

Common Causes of Ladder Accidents

Florida ladder accidents are some of the most common and dangerous types of accidents that can occur on construction and home improvement sites. Ladder or scaffolding injuries account for over 40 percent of all fall injuries that happen on construction sites, many of which are serious or life-threatening.

There are numerous ways Florida ladder accidents can occur. These include:

  • Bad or windy weather
  • Worker falls off ladder
  • Worker electrocuted on ladder
  • Ladder slips out from under worker
  • Ladder hit by other machine or vehicle

Florida ladder accidents can have lasting and damaging effects. These accidents can lead to:

  • Broken bones
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Back or neck injuries
  • Head or brain injuries
  • Loss of life

If you or a loved one has been injured in a Florida ladder accident you likely have medical bills and many other associated costs to deal with. The bills can pile up very quickly, and if you are unable to work in the mean time, they can be increasingly hard to handle.

However, you may be eligible to file a work injury claim against negligent employers or manufacturers in order to earn additional compensation.
