Damages Allowed in Ladder Accidents

Though ladders are a common tool, used both at home and in the workplace, a fall from a ladder can be very dangerous and result in serious injuries, especially if the fall is from great heights. If you are injured in a ladder accident, you can receive compensation for your injuries by filing a personal injury claim against the party responsible—because a ladder is a product, the party responsible could be the product manufacturer if the product was faulty.

When you bring a personal injury claim, you can receive compensatory damages, which is a legal term for financial recovery for your losses.

Compensatory Damages from Ladder Accident Injuries

Compensatory damages allow for financial recovery for the harm your injury caused to you physically as well as the harm cause to other aspects of your life. Compensatory damages are split into two different categories, economic and non-economic damages.

Ladder Accidents

Man Falling Due to
Broken Ladder

  • Economic Damages: Economic damages are awarded to compensate you for any money you lost because of your injuries. This includes medical, physical therapy, psychological care, and dental charges. It also includes lost wages and lost earning capacity (what you could have earned in the future had you not been injured).
  • Non-economic Damages: Non-economic damages are awarded for losses that are not necessarily financial but caused you harm. These types of damages include pain and suffering, emotional distress, inconvenience, and loss of enjoyment of life.
Workers’ Compensation

Ladders are commonly used in the workplace, and unfortunately accidents can happen which cause injuries. If your ladder accident injuries occurred while on the job, you may also be entitled to damages available under California’s Workers’ Compensations laws.

Wrongful Death

As previously mentioned, if you lost a loved one in a ladder accident, you are entitled to wrongful death damages for your loss. These would economic damages for the cost of your loved one’s car, and in addition, other costs such as funeral and burial expenses.

Client Reviews
You guys did a great job in settling my case! Hope you all do well and prosper. Thank you for a job well done. Jackie C.
We had two prior attorneys who were unable to settle our car accident case. We then hired Gary and Robert Walch and they not only got us both great settlements, but personally spent time with us explaining everything clearly. We couldn't be happier. Thank you! A.M. and M.A.
Dear Gary, I just want to thank you for working so hard on my case! I know at times we were a bit difficult, but you did a great job. I thank you and your son for good results. I will pass your number on to any one that I run across who may need a PI attorney! I send you warm regards. Julie B.
Dear Gary, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all your efforts on my behalf. The car accident was a very traumatizing experience for me. But knowing that I could trust you and your son, Robert, helped alleviate my fears and worries. Carmella C.
Thank you for all of your hard work and thank you for making it so easy over e-mail for me. I'm a busy working mom of an Autistic 5 year old son and you guys were great. I will definitely recommend your services to family and friends. Edna G.
