Legal Issues Associated with a Ladder Injury

Ladder injuries are commonly attributed to a number of causes and can involve a few different legal issues. Here are some legal issues associated with ladder injuries:

Product Liability

These are injuries resulting from a defective or poorly designed ladder.


For example, if a person holding a ladder acted negligently or if a person acted negligently or recklessly nearby someone using a ladder.

A ladder accident that occurs at a work site.

Many ladder injuries can lead to a lawsuit and can result in the liable party paying a damages award to the injured party. The award may compensate the person for the costs associated with their injury, which is why having a lawyer you can trust after a ladder accident can reap great dividends.

What To Do After a Ladder Accident

After a ladder accident, it is wise to turn to the law office of Falk & Klebanoff because an experienced lawyer can advise you on what compensation you are entitles to for any losses you have suffered.

A ladder accident often leads to a serious injury that may have life-changing implications, so it is vital to turn to a law office you can trust. Our team can fight for you on your behalf in the court system in order to get you the financial benefits you are entitled to after the injury.

It is often incorrectly though that a ladder accident is covered by workers compensation, but that is not always the case unfortunately. And it all depends on the circumstances of the accident, too. In many cases, it is better to seek a personal injury firm, like ours, to seek compensation instead of depending on the workers compensation to cover the medical costs, the lost wages for being out of work, and from the lower quality of life due to the injury. And if there is physical therapy required in the recovery, that is also an aspect that needs to be compensated for. When you have a ladder accident, turn to the experienced law office of Falk & Klebanoff and a lawyer will fight for you!
