Ladder Accidents in Santa Clarita
At a construction site, one of the most common causes of injuries is ladder
accidents. Ladder accidents can occur in other fields of work and circumstances
as well. If you have suffered injury by falling from a ladder that was
caused by another person's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
Design and manufacturing are common causes of ladder accidents. Even a
minor failure in a component of the ladder can result in significant failure.
