We Will Thoroughly Investigate Your Case
If you slipped and fell off a ladder or a scaffold at a construction site, another party may be at fault. Through a thorough investigation, our attorneys will examine:
- The condition of the work site
- Safety measures in place at the work site
- The maintenance and condition of the ladder being used
- Whether the correct equipment was being used
- Whether workers in the area were aware of the work being done
The investigation is an important part of your case. We will consult with experts, identify the cause of your accident or injury, collect medical documentation and apply our keen knowledge of construction law to your case. We know how to protect your rights and ensure that you and your family are fairly compensated.
Third-Party Claims May Be Available
If you have been injured in a construction accident, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your rights to compensation. Even if you are receiving workers’ compensation benefits, you may be eligible for additional damages if a third party (someone other than your employer or a co-worker) caused your injuries. Settlements and verdicts awarded to victims of construction accidents caused by third-party negligence are typically much greater than workers’ compensation awards.
Holding Companies Liable for Improper Ladder Maintenance
If you’ve worked on a construction site, you know that site safety is of the utmost importance. When employers don’t uphold their responsibility to maintain safe working conditions, accidents can occur, often resulting in serious neck, back or spinal injuries. Construction ladder accident cases are fairly common in the New York courts, and you’ll want an experienced lawyer on your side.
At The Orlow Firm, you will work with experienced NYC construction accident attorneys who truly care for our clients. We have helped thousands of clients obtain the compensation they need after serious injuries, and we understand that a fall, even one that seems like an accident, may actually be the fault of your employer, a manufacturer or another employee.

Unsafe and Faulty Ladders on Construction Sites
Is your injury due to:
- A damaged or defective ladder?
- The lack of an available ladder that is appropriate for the task you are required to perform?
- Unstable or uneven ground?
- A broken rung?
- Contact with a power line?
- An accident occurring while the ladder is being raised, lowered or moved?
If so, the Orlow Firm may be able to help you. If you are like many injured workers, you may believe your rights to compensation following construction site injuries are limited to workers’ compensation benefits. However, you may be able to pursue additional compensation through a third-party claim. Our attorneys have significant experience handling third-party claims for injured workers.
Third-Party Claims May Be Available
Third-party claims are filed against parties other than your employer, like owners, contractors and subcontractors that may be responsible or partially responsible for the accident. Third-party claims are not filed instead of a workers’ compensation claim, but in addition to a workers’ compensation claim.
Third-party claims almost invariably involve significantly more compensation than a workers’ compensation claim. New York Labor Law 240 places strict liability on contractors and owners for injuries caused by faulty ladders or scaffolding. This law allows for construction workers injured by unsafe or faulty ladders to obtain full compensation for their injuries.

Your Case May Be Worth More Than Workers’ Compensation
Companies have a responsibility to properly maintain ladders that construction workers use on a daily basis. When they fail to take proper care of equipment, workers’ lives are at risk. Falling from ladders can cause serious injuries. While workers’ compensation may help mitigate your situation, you may in fact be entitled to more money than you realize, especially in a case where there was negligence on the part of the construction company for not properly maintaining its ladders.
When you contact us after a fall from a ladder, we can refer you to a skilled workers’ compensation attorney. We will also determine whether a third party may be liable for your injuries. We will investigate your case to determine whether the ladder used was adequate, maintained and safe, and we will look at other factors that could have led to your injury. We have represented numerous victims of ladder accidents and can show you how to seek fair compensation for your injuries.
