Los Angeles Workers' Comp Attorneys
Falls are a serious concern for all types of workers. They can happen at construction sites, factories, retail stores, and office buildings. Ladder and roof falls are typically the most serious types of falls that a worker can experience. When they occur, a worker may be left with broken bones, head injuries, or back injuries that take time to heal. Workers' compensation provides coverage for lost earnings and medical expenses related to roof falls, ladder falls, and all types of workplace accidents.
Even though an injured worker may be entitled to workers' comp benefits, it is not always easy to recover such benefits. It can take time, particularly if your employer tries to deny that your injuries are work-related, fails to report the accident, or otherwise violates your rights. Even if your employer is on your side, the workers' compensation insurance company may try to delay or deny payment, or may offer inadequate benefits. A Los Angeles workers' compensation attorney can protect your rights and interests through the claims process after a serious ladder or roof fall.
