Who can be held responsible for a ladder accident at work?

A: In situations where a defective ladder causes an accident at work, the laws of Pennsylvania and New Jersey may allow the injured worker to recover for their injuries. Painters, contractors, electrical workers, etc., commonly use ladders while on the job, and under the laws of PA and NJ, there may be claims against different companies. For example, there may be negligence claims against a contractor for failing to inspect a job site. In addition, there may be a defective products case against the following:

  • ladder manufacturer,
  • ladder importer,
  • ladder retailer, and
  • ladder, equipment maintenance/rental companies.

Each case is unique and requires review by  a qualified workplace fall accident lawyer who can review the facts and determine liability of all parties.
