If you’ve recently purchased one of Werner’s attic ladders, you might want to consider filing a lawsuit. The lawsuit has many common themes, such as defective hinges and failure to recall. We’ve covered the basics and can help you navigate the legal process. In this article, we’ll discuss the Claim Form, Class action settlement, and the potential for a settlement. And we’ll also discuss whether or not you can obtain compensation through a settlement.

Claim Form

The settlement has been reached in the Werner attic ladders lawsuit. This settlement is binding on all members of the Settlement Class, including those who own Werner attic ladders. The Settlement excludes the Judge assigned to this case, the judge’s staff, and the members of Werner’s immediate family. During the class-action proceeding, the parties will analyze the Settlement to decide whether or not it is adequate.

The Werner Attic Ladders lawsuit was filed after numerous consumers were injured in attics by the product. In the class action lawsuit, the Werner attic ladders manufacturers were accused of using low-grade metal in hinges, which weakened over time. As a result, the attic ladders are prone to collapse and result in serious injuries to consumers. This lawsuit was settled by Werner in January 2014. The settlement, however, only requires the manufacturer to replace the faulty ladders. As a result, consumers who were injured by the ladders will not receive compensation for their injuries.

Class action settlement

A class action lawsuit against Werner Co. alleges that the company’s “Steel Easy Access” attic ladders were defective due to the zinc hinges. The company denied the allegations and settled the case to avoid the expense and risk of trial. The company was found to have ignored the warnings of consumers and did not provide compensation for injuries sustained from using the ladders. However, it did agree to replace the ladders.

The Werner parties have submitted sufficient information and conducted extensive analyses to support the Settlement. The Class Counsel examined thousands of documents, inspected several ladders, and analyzed Werner’s bankruptcy discharge issues. The Court also evaluated the adequacy of the Settlement. It concludes that the Werner settlement resolves the claims of approximately three hundred thousand U.S. consumers. The Settlement is expected to be completed by year’s end.

Defective hinges

A recent Werner Attic Ladders lawsuit details how a woman was injured by a defective rung, causing her to fall to her death. The woman was reportedly working at her home when her ladder buckled and she broke three of her ribs. She had purchased the Werner attic ladder in May 2012 and had used it regularly for over five years without experiencing any problems.

Consumers may be able to get compensation if the ladders they purchased are faulty or damaged by corrosion. Werner, which manufactures the “Steel Easy Access Attic Ladder,” has agreed to settle the case because of the high costs and risk of trial. This is a win-win for consumers because Werner is paying for its customers’ medical costs and lost income.

Failure to issue recall

Werner has received numerous consumer complaints regarding its attic ladders, but only issued one recall. One particular model, Space Master Attic Ladders, may have failed to properly install its hook, causing the ladder to fall from the ceiling without warning. While Werner removed 400 of these ladders from the market, it has not issued a recall for other models, and only offers a free replacement for those affected by the defect.

Werner has been unable to issue a recall for a defective model – the Steel Easy Access Attic Ladder, manufactured between 2003 and 2008. However, the company is refusing to compensate consumers who have been injured by its product. While Werner has denied liability, the manufacturer has not made any public announcements about the defect, despite a massive class action suit by injured consumers.


In a recent article, I wrote about the Werner Attic Ladders lawsuit that has been settled for $70 million. This case arose because some Werner ladders were defective. In particular, I focused on the “Steel Easy Access” Attic Ladder. This product was the cause of about 80 complaints a month. In the end, the company settled the suit for $70 million, giving injured customers a free replacement ladder, but no monetary compensation.

In the lawsuit, Poirier is suing entities responsible for the defective attic ladders. He allegedly suffered a severe quadriceps tendon and severe leg injuries when a Werner steel attic ladder collapsed on him. His wife, Laura Poirier, filed the lawsuit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on his behalf on Sept. 25, 2014. In the suit, Poirier is suing Werner Co., Old Ladder Co. (DE), and Lowe’s. The plaintiffs purchased a Werner model S2210 steel attic ladder from Lowe’s.
