One of the most common types of construction accidents is a fall from a broken or defective ladder.
It is important to hire a New York ladder accident injury lawyer to promptly investigate a ladder accident. Our construction accident attorneys use construction safety experts to inspect the ladder involved as well as the work site. Typical problems may include:
– placing a ladder on an uneven work surface
– placing the ladder on a nail, stone, or other construction debris which may cause the ladder to become unsteady
– using a ladder in a small space where it cannot fully open
– using an old, worn, or broken ladder
– using a ladder with either no footing on the bottom or defective footing
OSHA regulations require among other things that ladders be placed on secure footing, that defective ladders be labeled “dangerous: do not use” and removed from work sites, and that ladders be secured or held in position to prevent tipping. There are also rules and regulations regarding frequent inspections of ladders and maintenance of ladders in good condition. Many construction companies ignore these rules or are unaware of the rules altogether.
