Responsible Parties in a New York Ladder Accident
In a typical ladder accident case, more than one party may be responsible
for causing an accident that resulted in injuries. This very well may
be the situation in your case.
Parties held responsible for causing an accident can include:
- employer of injured worker
- building owner
- construction contractor
- construction sub-contractor
- ladder manufacturer
- negligent co-worker
- another third party
A Doan Law Firm New York ladder accident lawyer works tirelessly to identify
all responsible parties. Our legal team will fight to obtain justice from
any party that contributed to an accident that caused your injuries.
Compensation in a New York Ladder Accident Case
The potential financial recovery in a New York ladder accident case depends
on a couple of primary factors. These include the facts and circumstances
surrounding the accident itself as well as the nature and extent of the
injuries you sustained.
Understanding these basic parameters, our firm typically fights to obtain
compensation for an array of losses in a typical ladder accident case
- pain and suffering
- mental anguish and emotional distress
- medical expenses
- permanent disability
- permanent disfigurement
- lost income
If you are like many victims of ladder accidents, you may suffer significant
injuries. As a result, an attorney from our firm will fight not only to
ensure that you obtain compensation for existing losses, but also for
those you reasonably can be expected to face in the future.
Examples of future losses include medical expenses. You may require medical
care and treatment for an indefinite period of time. You may also endure
chronic pain that will not abate any time soon. You may be unable to return
to work in the near future. Indeed, if you are like a good many victims
of ladder accidents, you may never be able to return to the same job you
held before you sustained injuries.
Your case may also justify a claim for what are known as punitive or exemplary
damages. Punitive damages represent additional compensation awarded in
lawsuits. These damages are ordered when the party that caused an accident
engaged in particularly reckless conduct. Punitive damages are designed
not only to provide an injured person with additional compensation, but
to punish the party that caused an accident for egregious conduct.
