Were You Hurt After Falling From A Great Height?

Falling from heights can be a risk on almost any job depending on the particular duties. Given the need for work to be done on ladders and scaffolds, construction workers suffer a higher rate of these types of injuries than those in other professions.

Falling from heights can create catastrophic and fatal injuries, including:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Paralysis (paraplegia, quadriplegia, partial paralysis)
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Concussions

Often, when workers who have fallen from heights are brought to the emergency room the doctor’s main objective is to let you leave there alive. He or she may not be concerned with the long-term implications of your injury. This may mean that certain information regarding potential long-term impacts from the fall may be lacking in the medical record. Insurance companies often try to take advantage of this absence of information to minimize or deny completely legitimate claims. Our attorneys know how to overcome that challenge and ensure that you receive the full workers’ compensation benefits you deserve after being injured in a fall.
