Ladders and scaffolding are often an essential part of a construction site, as well an essential tool in many other occupations. General contractors and subcontractors have a responsibility to provide properly functioning ladders and secure, stable scaffolding that is safe for their intended use. Any failure in that responsibility places workers and others at risk of extremely serious injury that can easily be prevented.
If you have been injured on the job in a ladder or scaffolding accident, you have the right to seek workers' compensation benefits. The process involved with obtaining benefits can be quite complex. Having an experienced Kansas City workers' compensation attorney from Adler & Manson representing you from the start can help ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive adequate compensation from everyone who is responsible. Workers' compensation claims are allowed under the law even if the employer is not to blame.

At Adler & Manson, we represent Kansas and Missouri workers in a variety of complex ladder and scaffolding injury claims. Due to our extensive experience, we have an excellent understanding of the law in these matters. You can rely on us to provide the representation necessary to protect your interests and obtain fair compensation. Our experience in these matters includes injuries resulting from ladder and scaffolding falls, improperly secured or installed ladders and scaffolding, ladder and scaffolding collapses, using a ladder that is not sufficient for the job, and failure to provide a ladder.
If your injuries occurred because of a defective ladder or scaffolding, you may have grounds to seek additional monetary compensation in a separate personal injury claim against a third party other than your employer, for which the compensation is often significantly higher. We review every case to determine whether negligence on the part of anyone other than your employer contributed to your injury and, if it did, explore the viability of a separate claim. In every case, our goal is to see that you receive the maximum level of compensation available for your injury from all parties that are legally responsible.
