On Father's Day 2001, retired Army colonel, Frank Socky climbed a Versaladder to replace rusty screws on a floodlight at his Spring Valley home. The folding scaffold ladder collapsed and Socky fell, headfirst and backward onto the concrete walkway below. Frank's wife Madge Socky filed a lawsuit against the companies alleging the product was defective and responsible for the death of her husband. The ladder's distributor, Versa Products, and its subsidiary, G&L Products, who assembled the ladder, admitted no wrongdoing but agreed to pay Madge a $700,000 endorsement. (Aug-07-05) [THE STATE]
