Bay Area Lawyer Handles Claims Arising from Ladder Accidents

Assertive San Jose litigator holds negligent parties accountable for falls

When someone falls off a ladder, serious injuries can result. If you’re recovering from broken bones, a concussion or other types of physical harm, asserting your legal rights might take a backseat. Unfortunately, defendants, their lawyers and insurance companies often try to take advantage of this situation by making a weak settlement offer. At Law Offices of Richard J. Staskus in San Jose, we help clients avoid an unfair result and conduct thorough investigations to find out who is responsible for ladder accidents. Whether the fall was triggered by a manufacturing defect, poor placement or some other factor, attorney Richard Staskus aggressively seeks justice on behalf of Northern Californians who’ve been hurt in ladder accidents.

Northern California firm thoroughly reviews ladder accident claims

Our firm has recovered more than $100 million for Northern California clients in a full range of personal injury matters. Whether the particular harm in your case involves a traumatic brain injury, broken bones, contusions, abrasions or spinal cord damage, we have the knowledge and experience to develop a formidable argument on your behalf. Our firm will look at potential factors involved in your accident, such as:

  • Inappropriate use — Not every ladder has the same design and function, but people often use them interchangeably. We’ll determine if a ladder was used incorrectly or labeled improperly.
  • Weight limit — Limits on the weight that a ladder can hold are frequently overlooked or ignored. In other instances, people fail to account for the weight of the tools or paint they are carrying.
  • Damage — By examining the physical evidence and interviewing witnesses, we investigate if damage or corrosion to the ladder led to the accident.
  • Improper placement — No matter the specific situation, a ladder must be grounded and secured properly. Failure to do so can have severe consequences.

From your free initial consultation through the end of your case, we’ll provide assertive, personalized representation to give you the best chance of a fair outcome.
