Ladders are a part of many workers' day-to-day operations, and these employees rely on the equipment provided by their employers to safely complete the duties of their job. When an employer contributes to an accident involving an employee, the worker is eligible for workers' compensation to cover the injury and medical costs incurred.
Since our inception, we have been dedicated to providing individuals injured on the job with the representation they need in order to receive compensation after an injury due to unsafe ladder conditions.
This can cover a wide range of circumstances, including:
- Wrong type of ladder or scaffolding for the job
- Leaving the employee to improvise and take risky measures to complete the job
- Poorly maintained or repaired ladder, creating dangerous conditions for the employee
- Inadequate support or stabilization from fellow employees.
At Sullivan & Brill, LLP, we understand the circumstances detailing accidents involving ladders, and we know the devastating injuries that can be sustained as a result. We are steadfast in our commitment of helping victims who, at no fault of their own, have suffered a serious injury and now must live daily with pain and suffering. Contact our firm if you need compensation to help cover medical expenses, lost income, rehabilitative care, or any other costs incurred because of your injury.
