Industrial Accidents: Roof Falls
When a worker is injured in a roof fall, catastrophic injuries may be the result. Serious spine, brain, bone fractures and other injuries may be sustained. If a worker falls off a roof at the workplace it may be due to negligence in maintaining safety equipment or another cause, such as some other item falling from above, which pushes the worker off the roof. Depending on the height of the fall and how the body made contact below, these accidents in some cases are fatal. Whatever the case is, it is crucial that you get legal representation from an attorney to assist you in making your claim for damages.
Roof falls may also be falling through the roof onto hard concrete below, or a partially constructed roof collapsing on a worker. Whatever the situation is in your case, at Shea & Shea, a personal injury lawyer can assist you with your claim. As these accidents are particularly deadly, and the injured worker may never have the ability to work again, some of the claims are extremely large.
