WERE YOU INJURED BY A DEFECTIVE LADDER?

Product Liability Lawyers in Sacramento County

Construction workers are often required to climb scaffolding and ladders as a part of their daily jobs. Though there are vast, complex regulations and industry standards in place to protect workers from the dangers of this aspect of their careers, accidents continue to happen every day.

Sobering Statistics

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Revised 2011 workplace fatality data, there were 4,609 workers killed on the job in 2011. This equates to almost 90 deaths per week and nearly 13 deaths per day.

As stated by Secretary of Labor, Hilda Solis, during her Memorial Day speech on April 26, 2012, "Every day in America, 13 people go to work and never come home. Every year in America, nearly 4 million people suffer a workplace injury from which some may never recover. These are preventable tragedies that disable our workers, devastate our families, and damage our economy. American workers are not looking for a handout or a free lunch. They are looking for a good day's pay for a hard day's work. They just want to go to work, provide for their families, and get home in one piece."

Out of 4,114* worker fatalities in private industry in calendar year 2011, 721 or 17.5 percent were in construction. The leading causes of worker deaths on construction sites were falls, followed by electrocution, struck by object, and caught-in/between. These "Fatal Four" were responsible for nearly three out of five (57 percent) construction worker deaths in 2011*, BLS reports. Eliminating the Fatal Four would save 410 workers' lives in America every year.

  • Falls — 251 out of 721 total deaths in construction in calendar year 2011 (35 percent)
  • Electrocutions — 67 (9 percent)
  • Struck by object — 73 (10 percent)
  • Caught-in/between — 19 (3 percent)

The Hazards Of Ladders At Home & In The Workplace

A fall from a product defect, a malfunction or a failure of a component of a ladder while on a construction site can result in an onslaught of serious injuries — broken bones, neck injuries, back injuries, serious spinal cord injuries, paralysis or even death.

Falls from ladders are not only a workplace hazard, as these injuries can happen at home just as easily should your ladder be defective. If product liability or someone else's negligence caused the injury, our experienced attorneys can advocate on your behalf in order to get you the compensation you deserve.
