In today’s litigious society, ladder manufacturers are facing an increasing number of products liability type lawsuits. In these lawsuits, the plaintiff alleges that he has been injured somehow in a fall from a ladder. Usually the plaintiff is the author of his own misfortune and has fallen as a result of over-reaching or using the ladder improperly, but that does not prevent the plaintiff from attempting to blame the fall on the ladder.
