Ladder Defects and Falls

Over the course of our 28-year history, we have successfully handled claims on behalf of construction workers, homeowners and others who were hurt in ladder accidents.
Ladder Safety Violations And Ladder Defects Put People At Risk
Our ladder accident attorneys handle cases involving falls caused by a variety of issues such as:
- Faulty latches on extension ladders

Many ladder falls occur at construction sites, raising issues related to workers’ compensation and the potential for third-party personal injury lawsuits.
