Scaffolding & Ladder Falls

Boston Scaffold & Ladder Fall Lawyers

Helping Fall Victims and Their Families in Lynn, Brockton, Lynnfield, Quincy and Surrounding Areas

Construction site falls — whether from scaffolding or ladders or from roofs of homes, buildings or other structures — are serious accidents that can lead to life-altering injuries, and even death. Survivors of a serious construction site will likely require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitative therapy. In some cases, the injured construction worker may require vocational retraining or may be incapable of returning to any occupation due to the extent of the construction accident injury. Compensation is necessary to deal with the physical, emotional and financial impact of the accident.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a serious scaffold or ladder fall, talk to an experienced attorney at Powers & DiCicco. We offer a free consultation to discuss the accident and how our experienced lawyers can help. Call 866.596.0074 or e-mail us to schedule an appointment.

Construction Site Falls Resulting in Serious Injury or Wrongful Death
