Ladders present significant risks on a construction site.  Much like scaffolding, most injuries are falls or workers hit by objects falling from the ladder.  Proper safety training in the use of ladders is a must. Often, however, this training never takes place. Often times a worker will be using the wrong type of ladder for the work invoilved or will be using a ladder when a scissor-lift or boom lift is the safer option.  When these things happen, the risk of injury increases dramatically. If you or a loved one has been injured in a ladder accident contact the attorneys at Burns, Cunningham & Mackey, P.C., at 800-574-4332 to discuss your situation. We have the skill and experience to determine whether your injury was the result of improper use of the ladder or a lack of compliance with appropriate safety standards.

What Is a Ladder Accident Claim and What Damages are Available?

Nearly one third of the deaths at construction sites involve a fall from a ladder. This is unacceptable, as ladders naturally are a typical part of many if not most construction sites. Accordingly, compliance with the use of ladders on those sites seems like it may be one of the most fundamental requirements an employer should know it has when it comes to compliance with OSHA standards.
