Ladders are an essential tool on nearly every construction site in Pennsylvania. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) regulations as well as state and federal laws are clear with regard to the general contractor’s responsibility to provide ladders on a construction site. Failure to do so puts the safety of every worker on the job site in jeopardy.
If you or a loved one is suffering because of injuries from a ladder accident, the Lancaster attorneys at the law firm of Herr & Low, P.C., will pursue every available option in an effort to secure the financial compensation and workers’ compensation benefits necessary to accommodate your recovery.
Protecting The Rights Of Construction Workers
In every case we accept, we conduct a thorough investigation to determine how the accident occurred and who was responsible. We work to ascertain the full extent of your injuries and seek compensation for all of your needs over the short and long term. If the accident that led to your injury happened due to the negligence of someone other than your employer, we will explore the viability of a separate personal injury claim.
We have represented clients in a variety of ladder accident claims, including:
- Ladder falls
- Improperly installed or secured ladders
- Ladder collapses
- Providing a ladder that is not sufficient for the intended use
- Failure to provide a ladder for vertical access
