Compensation for an accident with an extension ladder

Although in life there are many things that we can reach, unfortunately there are also those things that are just out of reach, but luckily in these situations we have a ladder. Ladders enable us to complete a wide range of different tasks, but perhaps they are most popular for their ability to extend our height and allow us to reach two or three storeys into the air. This can be ideal for window cleaners, electricians and various other trades people.

If you work regularly with an extension ladder then you will know that there are risks involved and if you have been the victim of a faulty extension ladder then you could look to make a claim to cover any additional costs that you have incurred as the result of negligence here. 

How does an extension ladder work?

An extension ladder is incredibly simple to use and incredibly effective at completing its given task. Designed to fold just like a regular ladder, an extension ladder can be used to reach even further and involves the ladder being pulled out and extended to up to twice the length of the original ladder. With this increased capability it can allow you to reach even higher and towards areas that you might not otherwise have been able to reach.

If I’m injured by an extension ladder, what injuries might I claim for?

There are a number of injuries that you could potentially incur as the result of an extension ladder, some common examples of these include:

  • Injuries caused by falling from an extension ladder
  • Injuries sustained by a faulty extension ladder
  • Injuries caused by poor maintenance of an extension ladder
  • Injuries caused by poor training on use of an extension ladder
  • Injuries caused by unsafe working conditions.
