Working on construction sites can be very dangerous, especially when working at an elevation such as a roof. Whenever a worker has to use a ladder or scaffold to reach the area to be worked on, there is a inherent danger and possibility of a construction accident resulting in serious injury.
For example, if a worker falls from a ladder while working on a commercial building, and sometimes a residence, he or she may be able to make a claim for any injury they suffer. Under the Labor Law of the State of New York, in many cases the worker is absolutely entitled to compensation for the injuries suffered as a result of a construction accident. This is particularly the case where the injury does indeed result from a fall from a ladder or scaffold. Such a fall can obviously cause very serious injuries for which a claim can be made.
