How We Can Help
Hiring a lawyer from Fiedler Deutsch, LLP can help you obtain maximum compensation for a ladder accident. This is important due to the fact that these accidents are often serious and can involve significant medical bills or a lifelong need for treatment and therapy. You may have to give up your career in construction due to a ladder fall. If you settle for a lowball amount from an insurer, you may not receive the money you need to pay for a lifetime of related costs. The lawyers at Fiedler Deutsch, LLP will not stop fighting for you until you receive the maximum compensation you deserve – even if that means pursuing a judgment award at trial.

Depending on who or what caused your ladder fall, you may have the right to file a personal injury claim in New York. New York offers special protections for workers who fall from a height such as off of a ladder, and holds owners and general contractors responsible for these accidents as they are the ones legally responsible for worker safety.
