Ladders are commonplace in work settings, including construction sites,
warehouses, factories, oil and gas drilling sites, processing plants,
and utility operations plants. If you fell from a ladder and suffered
a serious injury, you may face a lengthy and costly recovery. The Stewart
Law Firm, PLLC can evaluate your case to help you determine who should
be held responsible for your injuries. Once we establish liability, we
can help you proceed with a personal injury claim.
Explore Your Options for Financial Compensation
At The Stewart Law Firm, PLLC, our Austin work injury lawyer represents
clients who have been seriously injured in ladder accidents – both
on the job and off the job. Common injuries include
head trauma and
broken bones. Hand injuries are also common, as most people will instinctively attempt
to break the impact of a fall by sticking out their arms.
Whatever the exact nature of your injuries, you are likely going to need
medical care. You may also be unable to work for a period of time. For
this reason, it is highly recommended that you explore your options for
financial compensation as soon as possible. Our firm can not only help
you identify all liable parties, but also seek to hold them accountable.
You may be entitled to financial compensation for:
- Past and future medical bills
- Temporary loss of income
- Non-economic damages
- Diminished earning capacity

If a third party was at fault for your accident (as in anyone other than
