With over 100 years of combined legal experience, you know that when our Kingston roof accident attorneys are working for you, your case is in good hands.
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:
Falling from a ladder
Slips and falls
Lack of safety equipment
Unsafe roof pitch
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.
