Ladder/Scaffolding Accidents at Home and Work

Your ladder accident may have been an on-the-job injury or a home maintenance accident.

In the first instance—on the job—you may qualify for workers' compensation benefits, and you may also be able to receive monetary compensation from any third parties who were responsible for causing an accident. These parties may include the manufacturer of a defective ladder or a subcontractor who left tools or materials in a dangerous location and contributed to causing injuries that occurred when a ladder fell.

In the second instance—at home—sources of monetary compensation may include the ladder manufacturer, your own health or accident insurance, and potentially the homeowner's liability insurance.

A scaffolding accident is nearly always connected with a building and construction. The injured person may be a worker, a visitor to the construction site, or a passerby. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) regulations should guide builders in the safe construction, use, and dismantling of scaffolds and ladders. However, accidents do occur—and they are very often traceable to negligence on the part of someone who was responsible for overseeing the stability and safe use of the scaffolding.

When you are covered by an insurance policy, you may struggle to ensure that you will be properly compensated for your injuries.
