When you use a ladder, you place implicit trust in its ability to hold you. It is important that the equipment is completely maintained and manufactured in such a way that the individual is safe from potential collapse or failure.
Despite the standards, ladder defects harm many individuals each year. At Eglet Prince, we advocate for victims of ladder accidents, recovering maximum damages to ensure that they make the fullest recovery possible.
If you have been hurt in a ladder accident, our trial lawyers can help. To arrange a free initial consultation to discuss your injury and how it could have been prevented, please contact our office today at 702-450-5400 or 800-450-5406 toll free.
When a ladder fails or collapses, it can result in significant injury, particularly if the individual was at a great height. These injuries can include:
Workers and individuals on the ladders are not the only ones that can be hurt. Those in the area can also be in danger should the ladder fail.
While workers’ on-the-job injuries are primarily covered by workers’ compensation, there can be additional claims if the ladder in question failed due to defect. We will help to evaluate if there is third-party liability against the ladder company for poor design or manufacturing of the product.
