Major ladder manufacturer Werner has recalled five ladder models, citing a fall hazard. The ladders, sold as multipurpose telescoping aluminum ladders, can break during use, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), creating the risk of a serious fall. The ladders in question were just released to the market in April 2018, but Werner has already received at least one report of an injury, wherein the ladder broke beneath a consumer, leaving them with injuries to their left side and elbow.

Werner Ladder Recall Affects 78,000 Units For “Fall Hazard”

According to Werner’s promotional materials, the ladders can be used in any one of five different configurations, with a load capacity of 375 pounds:

  1. twin step ladder
  2. stairway step ladder
  3. extension ladder
  4. wall ladder
  5. scaffold bases

What To Do If You Have A Recalled Ladder

Needless to say, consumers should stop using the affected ladders immediately. Werner is offering a free refund to anyone who purchased one of the ladders. Consumers have been instructed to return their model to the store where it was purchased; the recalled Werner ladders were sold exclusively through Home Depot and Lowe’s between April 2018 and May 2018.

America’s strong product liability laws require all manufacturers to provide the public with safe and working goods. When a manufacturer fails to do so, releasing a product that poses an unreasonable risk of harm, the company can be held accountable.

In fact, consumer product manufacturers are held to a standard of “strict liability”; plaintiffs need not prove negligence on the company’s part to secure compensation. All that you have to prove is that the product was unreasonably dangerous and that you were hurt due to the product’s risks.

Free Legal Consultations

Obviously, a ladder that is prone to breaking out from under you would almost certainly qualify as unreasonably dangerous.

As a result, our attorneys have launched a full investigation into the most recent Werner ladder recall. We are now offering free legal consultations to any one who was injured due to one of Werner’s recalled ladders.
