Insufficient fall protection and safety measures for workers on ladders can easily cause death and serious injury. Simple guidelines when using ladders include keeping the ladder clean and free of slippery substances, ensuring that the ladder is not loaded beyond its approved limit, and placing the ladder on an even surface. Fixed ladders may require safety measures such as self-retracting lifelines, rest platforms or cages.
Our firm has successfully litigated several catastrophic ladder accident cases against some
of the largest corporations in the world. In 2006, John Dooley
recovered a $9 million verdict against Sun Co. Inc. (now Sunoco) for an
injured worker who fell due to the lack of a safety cage on a ladder. That same year, John obtained a $6.8 million verdict for a worker who was injured in a fall at Lafayette College due to the lack of fall protection.
