Scaffolding & Ladder Falls

Northern California Defective Product Attorneys

Worker in a Ladder Scaffolds and ladders in public places are so common that many of us do not even notice that they are there. However, when one of those scaffolds or ladders is erected in a negligent fashion, the consequences can be catastrophic.

There is a duty of care that property owners have to ensure that their premises are safe for people who work on them as well as the people who are reasonably foreseen to be on the property. The lawyers at Corsiglia, McMahon, & Allard, L.L.P. have years of experience identifying who the responsible party is and relentlessly pursuing compensation for the injuries that our clients have suffered.

Who Can I Sue?

If you or a loved one has been injured by either a falling ladder or scaffold, or have been injured in a fall from a ladder or scaffold, you may have a legal claim against a number of defendants. The circumstances of your case will determine who may bear the legal liability for your injuries. Speak with one of our experienced personal injury attorneys at Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P. so we can analyze your case and make sure that we uncover every available source of compensation.

  • If you are injured on a premise owned by another, and that injury was caused by negligently placed, maintained, or overseen ladders and scaffolding, it may be appropriate to name the property owner as the defendant.
  • Many property owners will use contractors and subcontractors to work on, fix, or build their properties. If one of these contractors or subcontractors is negligent and carelessly allows you to be injured by a ladder or scaffold, our experienced attorneys know how to pursue compensation from them, as they are subject to personal injury liability.
  • If you were injured as the result of a defect in the design of a ladder or scaffold, the manufacturers may be held liable for its defective design or defect in the way that the product was manufactured.
Notable Case Result

$1.45 million for a construction accident (Pereira v. GF Construction venued in Santa Clara County).

I Suffered an Injury From a Falling Ladder. How Long Do I Have to File Suit?

California law sets out exactly how long a plaintiff has from the time of the accident to when he or she is barred from filing a claim. Each state has its own statute of limitations, but in California, a potential plaintiff has two years from the date of the injury to file suit. Reaching out to one of our knowledgeable Northern California personal injury attorneys ensures that we can start defending your case as soon as possible.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
