6 Tips to Avoid Ladder Falls

Colorado Workers Compensation Attorney

Do you climb a ladder at work?

Did you suffer a slip and fall injury while at work?

Are you wondering if you qualify for workers’ compensation?

Fall injuries are a serious concern, and using a ladder puts you at greater risk than almost anything else you do while on the job. To stay safe, use these tips to avoid a fall:

  1. Get the right ladder
  2. Don’t reach or lean too far
  3. Don’t stand at the top
  4. Set up the ladder correctly
  5. Level the ladder
  6. Learn to work with one hand

If you were injured falling off a ladder at work, do you qualify for workers’ compensation? There are certain actions that may affect your case. According to the Colorado Division of Workers’ Compensation, benefits may be reduced if a workplace injury occurred under certain circumstances, including:

  • Injury resulting from the worker’s use of drugs or alcohol.
  • Failure of the worker to use a safety device.
  • Failure of the worker to obey a reasonable, written and posted safety rule.

Do you want your workers’ compensation claim to get the attention it deserves? Meeting important time limitations is essential for a successful workers’ compensation claim.

"Kaufman and Kaufman was extremely professional in my case. They set appointments as often as I requested which was often weekly or more. They handled all the problems that came up and ended up settling my case for more than I expected. I was very happy with the result."

"I’ve known the folks at Kaufman and Kaufman for more than 30 years. Correct - I said 30 years. The Kaufman’s have *always* done the right thing, especially when it’s not easy. Trust, in 2022, is hard. Trusting the Kaufman’s, in 2022, is simple."

"Kaufman and Kaufman represented me in a workman’s comp case and I couldn’t be happier with their service. They were very professional and gave me the personal service I was relying on. I hope I never get in that kind of situation again but if I do the Kaufman’s would be the firm I’d call. I highly recommend them."

- Erik (2022)

"Couldn't have asked for a more compassionate and thorough legal representation! Matt was so patient in taking the time to explain everything. The entire staff was incredible. I felt bolstered and validated throughout. I would recommend K&K to anyone going through a dark time with a debilitating injury.. they truly do care about their clients."

"The Kaufman team is very professional and knowledgeable about the work comp laws . They guided me in every step of the process, and if I ever have to do this again , they would be my first call. Without them i wouldn't have been able to pay my bills, and provide for my family. Thanks again to Kaufman and Kaufman for allowing my family to survive."
