Workers’ Compensation After Falls From Heights
If your job involves climbing or working on scaffolding or other elevated heights, you have a high risk of injury. Falls from heights can cause back and neck injuries, broken bones, brain damage, paralysis or other serious injuries.
Workers injured by falls on the job are eligible for workers’ compensation. At Jerome, Gibson, Stewart, Stevenson, Engle & Runbeck, P.C., we can help you obtain benefits for your workers’ compensation claim and resolve any problems that arise with the process. We are certified workers’ compensation specialists, a certification provided to select lawyers by the State Bar of Arizona Board of Legal Specialization. We do not charge attorney’s fees unless you receive benefits.
Our workers’ compensation lawyers have advocated for employees seeking workers’ compensation for injuries sustained in a wide range of falls:
- Falls from ladders
- Falls from scaffolding
- Falls from rooftops and buildings
- Falls from elevators
- Construction site falls
- Warehouse falls
- Industrial and manufacturing falls
If you are injured and unable to work due to a work site accident, you may be entitled to two-thirds of your regular wages and paid medical care, although the specific benefits are more complex.
