Construction workers in California frequently have to use scaffolding and ladders in order to perform their work. Unfortunately, when scaffolding collapses or when a worker falls from scaffolding, that worker may suffer catastrophic injuries with life-changing repercussions. Injured workers who have been harmed in scaffolding and ladder accidents require compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses; if you need a San Mateo scaffolding accident attorney call 650-345-8484 or email us today.

Scaffolding & Ladder Fall Injuries
Scaffolding and ladder accidents commonly result in severe injuries, including:
- Broken vertebrae and herniated disks
- Spinal cord damage, including paraplegia or quadriplegia
- Broken bones
- Damage to organs
- Neck or back injuries
- Head trauma and traumatic brain injuries
It is a common assumption that a person harmed in a scaffolding accident is only able to receive workers’ compensation benefits. While workers’ comp is certainly a significant and important resource, there may also be third-party benefits available in certain circumstances. Our firm has the experience to look at all sources of benefits to ensure that our clients receive the maximum compensation available.
