Scaffolding & Ladder Falls

Monmouth County, NJ, Ladder Fall Injury Lawyer

Scaffolding and ladders are found on every construction site. Unfortunately, falls from scaffolding and ladders are also common and often result in serious injuries. Even people who are working close to the ground can suffer serious injuries if they fall. If you suffered injuries after falling on a construction site, or if you lost a loved one who fell while working, it’s critical to contact an experienced lawyer.

At Hobbie & DeCarlo, P.C., we represent individuals in Monmouth County and throughout New Jersey who suffered serious injuries after falling from scaffolding or ladders. Many of the individuals who contact our firm suffered because safety protocols were ignored or the equipment was not well-maintained. Our lawyers pursue compensation on behalf of individuals who suffered injuries because of:

  • Failure to provide safety harnesses
  • Failure to require safety harnesses
  • Failure to maintain scaffolding
  • Failure to repair broken ladder rungs
  • Failure to repair ineffective ladder feet
  • Failure to secure scaffolding
  • Failure to secure ladder
  • Use of improper harnessing
  • Removal of handrails or other safety features

With so many moving parts and unstable surfaces, construction sites are inherently dangerous. However, many of the injuries that construction workers suffer are preventable. When construction site managers or contractors take shortcuts to save money or fail to maintain the necessary maintenance on their equipment, they need to be held liable for the damages their negligence causes.
