Leading Causes of Roof Accidents

Most people understand that roofing is not an easy job — that is why they hire someone else to handle it for them. It is very labor-intensive, requiring workers to be constantly climbing, lifting, bending, kneeling, and twisting, all while on top of a roof. What people often forget is how dangerous working on a roof can be. One wrong move can result in an accident that leads to catastrophic consequences.

Several factors can lead to a roofing accident, including:

Roof collapse

Falling from a ladder

Slips and falls

Electrocution

Lack of safety equipment

Scaffolding collapse

Machinery malfunction

Falling objects

Inclement weather

Unsafe roof pitch

Heat exposure

No matter the cause of your roofing accident, our attorneys stand ready to assist you through the process of obtaining compensation for your injuries. We are committed to getting the money that you are owed to help you cover the cost of medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and pain and suffering.

What to Do After a Roof Accident

If you have been injured in a roof accident, there are a series of actions you should take to ensure that your right to fair compensation is protected.

Following a roof accident, be sure to:

Report the accident immediately to your employer

Seek medical attention for your injuries no matter how minor they may seem

Contact our roof accident attorneys as soon as possible

The reason it is important to hire our law firm is not only to ensure you file everything correctly for your workers’ compensation claim. We can also help you identify any third parties that could be held liable for your injuries.

This could be anyone other than your employer whose negligence could have contributed to your accident, including subcontractors, property owners, and equipment manufactures. When you work with our legal team, we can help you determine all responsible parties to maximize the compensation you receive.
