One of the most common types of work related accidents are falls and they can occur in many forms. One typical type of fall is a fall from a ladder. A ladder accident or fall can ultimately result in serious injuries such as broken bones, fractures, head, neck and back injuries. Severe falls or falls from high places can also result in spinal cord injuries, paralysis and death.
