Every finished structure you encounter required massive amounts of ladders and scaffolding to aid in its creation. Unfortunately, there is an inherent risk involved in scaling such equipment. Construction workers put themselves at considerable risk as they utilize ladders and scaffoldings to achieve the heights necessary to properly complete their job. Your boss has an obligation to maintain a safe work environment, complete with secure equipment. If you or a loved one has been injured working with ladders or scaffolding, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits can cover your medical expenses and earn you the wages you sacrificed during your time away from work. The workers’ compensation attorneys at Kaplan Lawyers PC will fight to make sure that you get the best medical attention and the most compensation for injuries sustained in a fall from a scaffolding or ladder.
