Industrial ditchers, commonly known as ladders, are used in many different industries to reach high places. They come in two main types: the vertical boom or wheel ladder and the extension ladder. The vertical boom ladder is the most common type, and it consists of a long, telescoping arm that hangs from a platform on the top of the ladder. The arm has a wheel at the end that you can use to move the ladder up or down. The extension ladder is similar to the vertical boom ladder, but it doesn’t have a wheel. You use your hands to grip the rungs along either side of the ladder and pull it up or down.
The most common vertical boom or wheel accident is when a worker falls from the machine. Workers who fall from these machines are at risk of sustaining serious injuries, including broken bones, head trauma, spinal cord injury and even death. Injuries can also be caused by objects that fall from the machine, such as tools or debris.
If you have been injured by a Ditcher (Ladder: Vertical Boom Or Wheel), you should contact an attorney. These accidents can be very dangerous and result in serious injuries. An attorney can help you file a claim and get the compensation you deserve.
