Ladder Accident Injury Attorney NYC

Thousands of construction workers suffer serious injuries in ladder accidents each year. Most of these accidents are preventable occurrences that someone failed to prevent. At The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny in Manhattan, we represent construction workers throughout the New York City area, including undocumented workers, who are injured on job sites due to unsafe conditions. Attorney Richard M. Kenny is a former construction worker and member of a laborers’ union who became a lawyer so he could help injured workers recover the full compensation they are due. Call (646) 808-3785 for a free case evaluation. You may be entitled to benefits beyond what is available through New York workers’ compensation.

Can I Sue My Employer?

While employers are generally protected from being sued by injured workers, there are exceptions. Our lawyers will carefully evaluate the circumstances of your accident to determine if you have the right to seek additional compensation through our civil justice system. Our attorneys have recovered more than $100 million for injured workers and their families.

Our goal is twofold: to help you recover the compensation you need to move on with your life and to hold negligent parties accountable.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, some of the most common causes of ladder accidents include:

  • Failure to train workers in the proper use and inspection of a ladder
  • Ladder defects
  • Steps that are not uniformly spaced
  • Failure to extend ladders three feet above the landing level
  • Not securing or bracing a ladder at the bottom
  • Not securing a ladder at the top
  • Ladders that break during use

Falls from ladders can result in devastating injuries that can affect your ability to earn a living. Workers’ compensation alone will not be enough to provide for the financial security of your family. Your recovery from a personal injury lawsuit may be the difference between a future of hope and a future of financial hardship.
