Whether you use ladders or scaffolding at home for regular tasks, remodeling, or for work, you're perched high above the ground.
But if you fall from a ladder or scaffolding because there was a design flaw, or it was broken or defective in some way, the injuries can be devastating. You can break a bone, fracture your spine, or even die – just by falling a few feet.
