If you have been hurt in a ladder fall accident, it is critical to retain your right to obtain full and fair compensation. Although no one likes the prospect of a lengthy legal battle, there is too much at stake to not file a claim. With the high costs of medical bills and the potential for long-term injuries that could keep you off the job and unable to earn an income, a successful legal claim could be the only remaining means to provide for you and your family.
At Hofmann & Schweitzer, we have the knowledge and experience to protect your rights. Representing injured New York City construction workers since 1977 in cases involving ladder falls, our lawyers take a strategic, aggressive approach to getting the best compensation awards possible for our clients.
Millions Recovered For Clients In Ladder Falls And Other Construction Site Falls
In any kind of ladder accident claim, the most important first step is to talk with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Failure to get your claim started right away could result in the statute of limitations running out and you losing your chance to bring a claim. Further, evidence could be compromised and witnesses can become unreliable. Dealing with the insurance company representatives without legal counsel could also result in a limited or denied claim.
With more than 35 years of experience handling construction accident litigation, we can protect your rights through every step of the legal process. Because we prepare every one of our cases for trial and our hard-earned reputation for successful litigation, opposing counsel is usually willing to make favorable settlement offers to avoid facing us in the courtroom. We will help you get the compensation you need.
We will research every possible cause of your accident to determine liability. Some ladder falls are a result of improperly maintained equipment or dangerous working environments, while others are caused by the negligence of foremen or other workers on-site, or faulty ladders. Our lawyers will help you through the workers' compensation process, bring a third-party liability claim under New York Labor Law 240 or find any other means available to maximize your compensation.
