Who Is Liable For My Ladder Injury?
A: There are many causes of ladder accidents and injuries that include defects in ladders, carelessness of a co-worker, and negligence on the part of your employer or even yourself. The circumstances of your Florida ladder accident will determine who is liable for your injuries.
For example, were you using a company’s ladder? Was it defective? Did your employer provide training on how to use the ladder appropriately? Did your employer supply you with protective fall equipment? Your answers to these questions will determine if you can hold your employer liable for your Florida work accident injuries.
If you were seen walking up the ladder loaded down with tools in your hand, the ladder accident may be your own fault. Before we can exactly tell who is liable for your work accident and injuries, we would need to review the specifics that surrounded your ladder accident.
