Ladder Falls

Ladder Fall Injury Lawyers

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ladder falls are a major cause of workplace injuries and death. More than 100 deaths, over 30,000 injuries requiring hospitalization, and about 15,000 injuries requiring time off work occur on a yearly basis as the result of workplace ladder falls. Among workers, around 40% of fatal falls involve a ladder, and approximately 20% of all fall injuries involve ladders. Individuals at the greatest risk for sustaining a ladder fall injury are men, older employees, and (not surprisingly) those who work in construction, installation, extraction, and maintenance. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as the result of a ladder fall in the Atlanta area, the legal team at Katz Wright Fleming Dodson & Mildenhall can help.

Falls from Ladders are Preventable

The sad fact is that many, if not most, ladder fall accidents are entirely preventable. Federal law requires employers to take reasonable steps to help employees avoid ladder falls, but, even so, a low-safety culture in many sectors of the construction industry and generally unsafe practices in many workplaces contribute to the steady rate of ladder fall injuries every year. Circumstances associated with ladder fall incidents frequently involve:

  • Slippery, cluttered, or unstable walking/working surfaces
  • Unprotected edges
  • Floor holes and wall openings
  • Unsafely positioned ladders
  • Poorly designed or assembled ladders that collapse
  • An object falling and striking a worker on a ladder
  • Electrocution due to a ladder contacting a power line
  • Misused or unprovided fall protection, such as helmets and safety harnesses
  • Lack of training

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I was in a head-on collision last year that put me in a wheelchair with a fractured femur. I needed an attorney and my cousin recommended this firm because he had used Briant Mildenhall for his accident. I was glad I called Briant because he always did what he said he would do and kept me informed. We settled with the insurance company and I'm happy with the result. If someone I know needs an attorney, I will tell them to call Briant because he will get the job done. Michael G.
★★★★★
After a head–on collision I had extremely serious injuries to my back and neck, and some internal injuries. I was airlifted to the hospital and started a huge amount of medical expenses accumulating. I hired a lawyer recommended by a friend but I was not satisfied. My cousin told me about this firm so I talked to Briant Mildenhall about handling the case. I was at ease from the get–go. Briant kept me informed all the way through, was always reassuring and did everything he said he would do. He helped us get the money we needed to get the treatment we needed. Briant was fantastic! Ronda W. (Car Accident)
★★★★★
I was in a car accident that was complicated from the start. I looked on the internet and called a few different lawyers but they turned me down after they heard my story. When I called this firm Lyn Dodson asked me to talk to her in person. I met with Lyn and Rob Katz and after hearing my story they were confident I had a case. They vigorously pursued my case and over time we built a trusting relationship. Lyn even took time to help me with the traffic issues and other aspects of the case. They were always on my side and talked to me about the advantages and disadvantages of my options... Robert W. (Car Accident)
★★★★★
After my car accident, I was looking for an attorney and came across the name Katz Wright Fleming Dodson & Mildenhall LLC. My intuition told me to call. I called in and Briant Mildenhall talked to me. He was very clear and honest about my options. As the case went forward, Briant and the staff at the law office always answered my questions right away. I was very confident in Briant's legal ability. He kept me informed every step of the way. I would recommend Mr. Mildenhall and the firm to anyone who needs an attorney. Antonio J. (Car Accident)
★★★★★
I would recommend the law firm of Katz Wright Fleming Dodson & Mildenhall LLC. Lyn Dodson was my attorney after my auto accident. I had confidence in her legal abilities and experience. She did a very good job for me. She was always there to answer the many questions I asked. The firm is very professional. Lyn always gave you her undivided attention. The firm, especially Lyn, worked with you like a long time friend. Joe B. (Auto Accident)
★★★★★
I am 100% satisfied. I called Rob the day after the accident. Everything he said that would happen did, every step of the way. He went beyond what we needed him to do. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer. Steve H.
★★★★★
Robert Katz isn't your average personal injury lawyer. He has specialized knowledge and experience that the others don't. Timothy W. (Trucking Accident)
★★★★★
I have nothing but good and positive things to say about Rob. One of the unique things about my case was that I was involved in a bicycle accident with another biker. He took an unorthodox case between two bicycle riders and he could see the logic and liability in it. I was very happy with the result. Rodney H. (Bicycle Accident)
★★★★★
We just loved him to death. He acted like he cared about us, not just our case. He kept us posted on everything. He even called us on Sundays to update us. My case involved a rear-end collision where I had herniated disks and I had had a prior back injury. Complicated as it was, we were very happy with the outcome. Kathy H. (Car accident)
★★★★★
Throughout the course of my case, Mr. Katz kept me informed about its status, returned my telephone calls and was very attentive to my needs and concerns. Simply put, he cared not just about my case, but about me. Joseph B.
★★★★★
I was, and still am, extremely satisfied with Rob's work and with the outcome of my case. Rob strives to be there for his clients, and I was no exception...I would happily recommend Rob to anyone who is seeking legal assistance after suffering a severe injury. Joey E.
