Massachusetts Ladder Accident Lawyers
Have you been injured in a ladder accident? The American Ladder Institute estimates that each year more than 500,000 people receive medical treatment due to ladder-related accidents ranging from cuts and bruises to fractures and brain injuries. Each year ladder injuries result in more than 300 deaths. More often than not, these types of preventable injuries are the result of a defectively designed or poorly manufactured ladder.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a Massachusetts ladder accident, the maker of the ladder involved may be liable for your injuries if a defect played a role in the accident. At Gilman Law LLP, we have successfully represented Massachusetts ladder accident victims for more than 30 years, and understand the devastating toll these types of personal injuries take on victims and their families. With Gilman Law’s experienced team of Massachusetts ladder accident lawyers by your side, you stand the best chance of recovering all of the compensation you need to cover your current and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other damages.
Ladder Accident Lawsuits
Ladder accidents can happen anywhere – at home, or at work. Serious injuries can be the result of a faulty stepladder, fixed ladder, portable ladder, or an extension ladder. Any ladder that has broken rungs, uneven ladder feet, cracks in the rails or rungs, a warped or rotted frame, or any additional factor that compromises its structural integrity can result in serious injuries including:
- Broken bones or limbs
- Head injury, including concussions and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord damage that may lead to paralysis
- Burns, wounds, and other cosmetic injuries
- Other back and neck injuries
Unfortunately, defective ladders are all too common, and recalls of ladders with serious manufacturing defects are issued fairly regularly. If stores and distributors fail to act on faulty ladder complaints, and these defective ladders remain in their inventory, catalogs and e-commerce websites, they can also be held liable for any injuries the ladders cause.
If you were injured in a ladder accident, the Massachusetts personal injury lawyers at Gilman Law LLP will thoroughly investigate your claim to determine if a defective ladder was to blame. Our investigation will also focus on identifying responsible parties and establishing a fair level of compensation for your injuries. Our Massachusetts ladder accident lawyers will handle all settlement negotiations, and won’t hesitate to take your personal injury lawsuit to trial if necessary. If you or someone you love has been injured due to a defective ladder, don’t hesitate to call Gilman Law LLP today. Negotiating alone or waiting until an insurance company makes an offer could put your rights in jeopardy, and cost you valuable time and money.
