New York Falls From Height Injury Attorney

Slips, trips, and falls are a leading cause of injury in the United States, both on the job and elsewhere. When those falls occur from extreme heights–on an escalator, on a ladder, on scaffolding, on a staircase, on an elevated surface, etc.–the danger is even more pronounced. Falls from height are more likely to lead to serious injury or even death. If your fall occurred on the job or someone else’s property, you and your family may be entitled to substantial compensation.

Call Leandros A. Vrionedes, P.C. now if you or someone you love has been injured in a fall from height at work, in a public building, or in your apartment building. We’ll investigate the nature of your fall, determine who can and should be held responsible, and work to get you the compensation you deserve for the harm you have suffered.

Common Reasons People Fall from Elevated Surfaces

Construction workers are at especially high risk of falling from heights. Construction and maintenance workers often operate from elevated surfaces, whether they are working on ladders, scaffolding, elevators, or otherwise building or maintaining objects on high planes. Many workers are injured because of faulty equipment, lack of safety training or equipment, lack of supervision, poorly-constructed safety rails, inclement weather, and other factors.

Besides construction, there are many reasons why people might fall from a high place and suffer injury as a result. Personal injury attorney Leandros A. Vrionedes helps workers and everyday civilians alike recover compensation for their injuries after falls caused by any number of hazardous factors, including:

  • Elevator collapse
  • Faulty staircases

  • Defective or unstable ladders
  • Lack of fall protection
  • Tripping and slipping hazards on an elevated surface
