Can you receive compensation for your injuries from falling off a ladder?

Ladder

There is always a risk of falling and suffering injuries when working on a ladder. There are many types of ladders used by NYC residents and workers, and while some may be designed with more safety features than others, they are never 100% safe, and ladder accidents occur often, as many NYC premises accidents lawyers can easily attest to.

Even experienced workers who work from ladders every single day can have an accident and if you or a loved one has fallen off a ladder, you may believe you have little recourse, as the accident was surely your fault, right? Actually that this is not always the case, and often, companies can be held liable for your ladder falling accident.

Most ladders today are designed according to specific safety standards. If you were working from a ladder that was not properly maintained by a company or does not meet safety standards, then you may have a case and can be entitled to a settlement for your injuries and pain and suffering. A company that is negligent in taking proper care of their ladder equipment or having you work in an unsafe environment can also be held liable.
