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 be entitled to workers compensation as well as monetary compensation from any responsible third party, such as from the ladder manufacturer or distributor or a subcontractor who left dangerous debris at the work site that triggered the ladder fall.
In the second instance--at home--sources of monetary compensation may include the ladder manufacturer, your own health or accident insurance, and potentially the homeowners 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 Heath Administrations) regulations should guide builders in safe construction, use and dismantling of scaffolds and ladders. However, accidents do occur — and are very often traceable to negligence on the part of someone who was responsible for overseeing the stability and safe use of the scaffolding.
Regardless of where compensation comes from, you can count on most insurers that are responsible for doing what they can to minimize pay-out of benefits. With a zealous legal advocate on your side, you can even the playing field in any battles that ensue as you seek to cope with financial losses resulting from your fall injury.
