San Francisco Ladder Accident Lawyer
Ladder Accidents on the Job in San Francisco
Working environments present opportunity for accidents of many kinds, whether the environments are construction sites, office or retail business sites. Falls from ladders can be particularly harmful, particularly at construction sites where the sites are often beehives of random activities in close quarters. A ladder that is suddenly tipped, causing sudden movements by a worker on the ladder in his or her attempt to right the instability, can intensify both the probability of a fall and can intensify the fall itself if it occurs. These combinations of sudden, random motions can lead to falls that are damaging both to the falling person and to other persons if they are struck by a fall.
An experienced San Francisco Workers' Compensation Lawyer has knowledge of the damage associated with many kinds of falls, the variety of conditions that can bring them on and the reasons that falls can produce a variety of injuries, small and large. Falls can result from things such as:
- Heavily used ladders that are more unstable than when new;
- Extensive close and random motion on jobsites, particularly construction sites;
- Office operating environments where ladders are found suddenly in typically out-of-place settings, thus creating unpredictable motion in otherwise predictable settings;
- Office and Retail environments where a worker who rarely handles bulky packages is suddenly required to handle them on a ladder.
