Ladders Can Pose a Serious Risk at the Workplace

You don't need us to remind you that working on/near ladders can pose a serious risk at the workplace. Accidents involving ladders can cause long-lasting injuries that many workers never fully recover from.

from thetimesherald.com

A 53-year-old man was hospitalized after falling from a stepladder at the McLaren Port Huron construction site.

Port Huron Fire Battalion Chief Mark Ford said the accident happened about 7:43 a.m. Tuesday.

The man was about halfway up the ladder, Ford said, when he fell and struck his head on a concrete surface.

The accident was on the top floor of the new patient tower being constructed at the hospital.

Even with the employees following the proper safety protocol, there's no way to predict certain accidents. Just because it was a "freak" accident doesn't mean that the injured employee is deprived of his rights.

This injured worker should...and will...be compensated for his wages lost, medical bills, and other extra expenses that the injured work may incur.

Eric, Randy, and Sarah have worked with injured workers time and time again to ensure that their rights are being upheld. You the worker are rightfully due compensation for the injuries you suffer while on the job...whether they be freak accidents or not.

We hear from clients all the time that their employer offered them a "deal" for their injuries, and they were shocked to discover how little the employer offered them, and how in many instances, the employer was in direct violation of the workers' rights.

Don't settle for what your employer offers you...you have rights, and we're here to help!
