Workers in the building trades would be much safer if all work occurred on the first floor. But that is seldom the case. Whether you are a painter, a carpenter, an electrician, a cable installer, a roofer, a farm worker, a brick mason, an insulation worker, even a sales clerk reaching for merchandise, you spend time every day on ladders.
You do not have to fall a great distance to be seriously injured. Injuries include concussions, brain and head injury, broken bones, impalement, abrasions, lacerations, and internal bleeding. A fall can cause you to lose your teeth or your eyes. Ladders are dangerous.
At Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., our Kansas City workers’ compensation lawyers plead claims for workers hurt from falls. In addition to ladder falls, we work with people injured in scaffolding collapses, construction elevator mishaps, and the many other kinds of falls that occur on construction and other work sites.
Our workers’ compensation lawyers in Kansas City are respected for their grounding in this very complex system, including reams of Missouri case law, some of which will have relevance to your case. We prepare your claim with great care, highlighting medical opinions, and calculating the harm you have suffered to obtain the maximum amount of compensation. We help you pay your medical bills and to obtain disability benefits in the wake of your injury.
