The seriousness of falling off a ladder

Do you find yourself spending a lot of time working on a ladder? For many professions, such as painters, this is a daily occurrence. While ladders can make your life easier on the job, there is always the chance that it could lead to injury or death.

Falls from ladders, especially at extreme heights, can lead to injuries of the spine, back, legs and arms, among many other body parts. According to the government, ladder falls are among the most common safety violations in the workplace.

There are many causes of ladder falls. For example, the ladder itself may not have been in good working condition. Along with this, there is a chance that somebody or something could bump the ladder, thus leading to a fall.

If a person is injured in a ladder fall, the first thing they must do is seek immediate medical attention. Even if the injuries do not appear to be serious, it is better to be safe than sorry. Some injuries, such as those to the head, do not immediately produce symptoms.

Once you receive treatment, it is time to learn more about the accident and how to collect compensation. For example, you may be able to file for workers' compensation. Along with this, depending on who was responsible for the accident, filing a lawsuit is also a possibility.
