Woodland Hills Ladder Accident Attorney

Ladders are commonly used at home or around the workplace whenever you need to get to an area that is out of reach. While ladders may seem harmless, according to the United States Product Safety Commission, there are over 100,000 ladder injuries every year. The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors adds that, based on the World Health Organization reports, there are approximately 164,000 emergency room treated injuries in the United States alone and there are around 300 deaths per year from ladder falls. In addition, falls from ladders are the leading cause of deaths at construction sites and are a leading cause of workers’ compensation claims.

If you or someone you care about is injured in a ladder accident, please seek immediate medical care. Then contact a Woodland Hills ladder accident attorney for a FREE consultation and immediate assistance.

Ladder Types

A ladder is a structure or tool generally designed and built for climbing that comes in various sizes and types for different uses. They usually consist of two long sides that are joined or connected at uniform distances by steps called rungs. Great caution is required when using ladders as falls from ladders often cause serious injuries and sometimes even deaths.

According to Ladders.Net, there are at least seven (7) different kinds of ladders that one must select from in choosing the proper ladder for the task at hand. These include the following:

Ladder Accidents
  • Step Ladders
  • Extension Ladders
  • Platform Ladders
  • Step Stools
  • Multi-purpose Ladders
  • Telescoping Ladders
  • Folding Ladders

Each of these types of ladders is different and is used in different situations for different purposes. It is important to know the difference between these ladders and select the right one as using the wrong type of ladder is one of the most common causes of ladder accident injuries. It is crucial to use caution at all times when using any type of ladder.

Get the Compensation You Deserve

Ladder accidents can occur for many reasons including an unsafe work environment or a faulty ladder. If you are injured in a ladder accident caused by another person’s recklessness or negligence or by a faulty product, you can receive compensation for your injuries from the party responsible for your injuries by filing a personal injury claim against that party. A fall from a ladder can also be so serious it results in death—if you have lost a loved one due to a ladder fall, you should seek the help of a skilled California wrongful death attorney who can assist you in bringing a wrongful death claim against the party responsible for your loss.

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.
