Scaffolding Injuries and Ladder Accidents
San Francisco | San Jose | Oakland | San Rafael CA
If you work a construction job, chances are pretty good that some or most of your work involves scaling ladders or working on scaffolding. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, scaffolding and ladders can be highly dangerous. A general contractor may fail to properly maintain the ladder or scaffolding, or may fail to instruct or train others how to put the scaffolding together. Necessary guard rails may not be used, or scaffolding may be overloaded. You can also sustain serious injury when other workers improperly use ladders or scaffolding and they fall on you. Regardless of the cause, when you have been hurt in a ladder or scaffolding accident, you want an experienced personal injury lawyer to protect your rights.
At Weber & Nierenberg, we have aggressively protected the rights of personal injury victims for almost 30 years. We place a premium on personal service and attention, and always make certain that all matters in your case are handled by one of our attorneys. We are a small firm, with the flexibility to promptly respond when there are developments in your case. Nonetheless, we provide the extensive resources and knowledge you normally expect to find at a large law practice.
Getting Financial Compensation for a Ladder / Scaffolding Injury
We handle all matters related to injuries suffered in accidents involving ladders or scaffolding. We will carefully gather all evidence to support your claim, and will prepare all documentation required by the courts. We will also represent you in all hearings or proceedings, including depositions, settlement meetings and trial.
We represent anyone who has been hurt because of carelessness in the use, construction or assembly of ladders or scaffolding, including construction workers and passersby. We handle claims involving:
- Careless or negligence in the construction of materials used to build a ladder or manufacture scaffolding
- Wrongful conduct in the training or hiring of personnel constructing a scaffold or using a ladder
- Negligence in monitoring the weight load on a scaffold or verifying the weight capacity of a ladder or scaffold
We take claims involving any type of injury suffered in ladder or scaffolding accidents, including serious and catastrophic loss, such as brain or spinal cord injury, broken bones, paralysis, and amputation or loss of limb. We will also represent surviving family members after the loss of a loved one in a scaffold or ladder accident.

At Weber and Nierenberg we understand your anxiety about getting all of your medical bills paid, loss of earnings reimbursed, compensation for pain, suffering or the loss of a loved one and the costs of high quality legal representation. We provide an initial evaluation of your claim at no charge to you. If you decide to retain us we will negotiate a contingency fee with you that you are comfortable with so that you will not pay any attorney fees or costs unless we get you compensation for your losses.
Contingency Fees Negotiated On Every Case.
We will take your scaffolding or ladder accident injury claim on a contingency basis. You will only pay attorney fees if we recover compensation for your injuries.
When you come in for a free consultation, you will have a one-on-one consultation with your personal injury lawyer. We will talk to you about the reason you consulted us, explain your rights and explain the litigation process.
From the beginning, we will monitor your medical progress. If you do not have health insurance, we will help you find alternatives. It is important for you to have the medical treatment you need.
Throughout the claims and litigation process, we will answer your questions and concerns so that you understand how your case is progressing. Your attorney will always return your calls as quickly as possible and keep you informed until your case is resolved.
