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.
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:

When you work with our legal team, we can help you determine all responsible parties to maximize the compensation you receive.
