Ladders Cause Numerous Injuries for Construction Workers

Many serious accidents occur when workers are using ladders. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), among construction workers, an estimated 81% of fall injuries treated in U.S. emergency rooms involve falling off a ladder. Short of death, a victim may suffer head and back injuries that require a lifetime of treatment.

Factors causing serious ladder accidents include:

  • Leaning ladders against an unstable supporting surface

  • Using a ladder on a slippery surface

  • Failing to ensure ladders have slip resistant feet

  • Incorrectly-sized ladders

  • Putting ladders on other objects

  • Failing to regularly inspect ladders for defects

  • Supplying workers with improperly maintained or old ladders

  • Failing to provide fall protection, such as spotters, restraints, and barricades

  • Holding heavy items on a ladder

  • Failing to properly train workers on ladder safety

  • Using metal ladders around electricity

Ladder falls also occur when people, equipment, or vehicles collide with ladders and throw them off-balance.

Third-Parties May be Liable for Ladder-Related Injuries

Although ladder accidents on construction sites are commonly caused by employer negligence, third parties could be liable for your injuries as well. Ladder manufacturers, retailers, and property owners are parties who can be held accountable for these types of accidents. We’ll investigate to identify all potentially liable parties with the goal of making sure you receive maximum compensation for your present and future injuries.
