Helping Roofing Accident Victims Explore Their Recovery Options

The accidents that cause significant injuries to many construction workers are often caused by manufacturers or other contractors. If a roofer leaves a hole in the roof, an HVAC worker may step through it and fall. An inadequately designed hatch cover may not be secured properly, leading to dangerous falls as well. Barriers that prevent workers from falling off the edges of roofs may be inadequate or defective, or fall safety equipment such as harnesses or nets may not be provided in situations where they are needed. These issues can lead to dangerous accidents, and roofers may suffer fall injuries or other forms of harm.

Our construction site injury law firm handles roofing accident cases involving a wide range of factors, including:

  • Inadequate tie offs
  • Unguarded holes in the roof
  • Inadequate barriers
  • Malfunctioning protective equipment
  • Lack of safety nets or other fall prevention measures
  • Defective ladders or scaffolding
  • Faulty construction leading to collapsing roofs

Third-Party Lawsuits for Roofers

If someone besides your employer or a co-worker was responsible for the conditions that led to your work injury, you may be eligible for compensation beyond what you would be able to receive through workers' compensation. We work with accident reconstruction experts and medical specialists who can help us evaluate your accident and the full extent of your injury in order to maximize your compensation. We will identify the parties who were responsible for your injuries, and we will work with you to pursue third-party claims. Our goal is to make sure you will be fully compensated for all expenses related to your injury, including the costs of medical treatment, loss of past and future income, and pain and suffering.
