Lift & Ladder Accidents The Lawyers You Need & Deserve

Chicago Ladder Accident Lawyer

Falls from lifts and ladders injure thousands of construction workers every year. The injured may face a long and painful recovery, as well as an uncertain future. This is a time when you could benefit from the advice of an experienced attorney.

At the law firm of Trapp & Geller in Chicago, Illinois, our lawyers have extensive experience representing injured construction workers and their families. If you were injured in a fall from scaffolding, a ladder, lift truck, scissor lift, elevator or aerial lift, we offer a free initial consultation to explain your rights and answer your questions.

Beyond Workers' Compensation

Employers often steer injured workers and their families to benefits from workers’ compensation following a serious construction accident. However, workers’ compensation benefits are limited and will not replace everything you have lost, especially if you have suffered a serious injury.

Workers’ compensation may not be your sole source of recovery. If your fall was caused by the negligence of another party, you may be able to collect additional compensation through our civil justice system. While you generally cannot sue your employer for a work-related injury, you may have the right to sue a third party if it was responsible for your injury. Examples of third parties include contractors, site owners and equipment manufacturers.

The following are examples of construction accident cases that may involve negligence of a third party:

  • Falls caused by defective equipment
  • Falls from unsecured ladders
  • Injuries caused by ladder or lift collapse or tip-over
  • Injuries caused by contact between a lift or ladder and overhead power lines
  • Injuries caused by collisions between lifts and other vehicles

Our lawyers will evaluate your case and ensure you receive the maximum compensation from all sources.
