Workplace falls are a serious issue. When an employee suffers an injury due to a fall in the workplace, the result can be a lawsuit. That’s where workplace litigation support can be beneficial. Litigation support services, like those provided at Ellis Falls Safety Solutions, can provide businesses with the tools and expertise needed to defend against lawsuits related to workplace falls.

Litigation support includes a range of assistance to businesses in Maryland. Here at Ellis, we can do everything from investigation to testimony. By utilizing litigation support, companies can better protect themselves from costly legal actions stemming from workplace falls.

Investigating Falls

Thorough investigations performed by a 3rd party are one of the best benefits of litigation support. These investigations can identify the root causes of the fall, such as unsafe working conditions or employee error. By understanding the reasons for the fall, businesses can help prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.

In addition to investigating the causes of the fall, workplace litigation support can provide businesses with expert witness testimony. This can be especially valuable in cases where the cause of the fall is in dispute. Ellis Litigation Support has been working with OSHA standards in a courtroom for over 40 years. We have the knowledge and expertise to figure out what happened. We’ll then provide that evidence clearly and concisely to a judge. If this is your first dispute, we’ll help you know what to expect every step of the way.

When selecting a litigation support service, Maryland businesses should look for providers with experience in workplace safety and legal defense. They should also have a track record of success in defending against fall-related lawsuits. That’s where EFSS comes in. We have over 40 years of experience in litigation work, specifically in fall protection. We have worked on hundreds of cases. We also have an in-house support team handling specialty areas and case preparation.

Prevention Over Remediation 

Always remember: prevention is better than litigation. Businesses can take proactive steps to prevent workplace falls, which can help them avoid legal action in the first place. That includes implementing safety equipment and training programs, regularly reviewing and updating workplace policies and procedures, and conducting regular safety audits. At EFSS, we’ve provided training to over 20,000 managers in fall prevention and workplace safety. 

Prioritizing workplace safety allows businesses to avoid legal action due to workplace falls. Owners and managers should take proactive steps to prevent falls from occurring. Then, they can protect their employees from injury and themselves from costly legal action related to workplace falls.

Businesses need to understand that workplace falls can have a substantial impact on their bottom line. In addition to legal action, workplace falls can result in lost productivity, increased insurance costs, and damage to the company’s reputation. By prioritizing workplace safety and taking proactive steps to prevent falls from occurring, businesses can protect their employees and their bottom line.
