When an accident occurs due to an unsafe work environment, property owners and contractors may be liable. At Martinez & Schill LLP, our attorneys are skilled and experienced in handling all types of construction accidents including roof falls. We are familiar with the devastation a serious injury can bring to an individual and a family. Our San Diego construction fall attorneys aggressively seek maximum compensation for our clients’ injuries so you can focus on your recovery.
Roof Fall Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries
There are a variety of professions that are vulnerable to roof fall accidents including roofers, electricians, painters, framers, HVAC installers, ironworkers, and general laborers. Whether you are working on a high-rise, low-rise, residential, or commercial building, falling from the roof can result in serious injuries. Depending on the distance of the fall and the landing area, the accident could cause life-altering injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI);
- Paralysis/spinal cord injury;
- Back injuries;
- Bone fractures.
Serious injuries such as these can result in thousands and thousands of dollars in medical bills, rehabilitative costs, lost wages, and other damages. You may not be able to return to your job or any job because of your injuries. You deserve to be compensated fully for all of your damages and we aggressively pursue that outcome.
Some roof falls also result in fatalities. When a loved one is lost in a construction accident caused by negligence or recklessness, the surviving family is entitled to financial recovery. Our attorneys are skilled in handling wrongful death cases. We fight to ensure our clients are taken care of after the wrongful death of a loved one.
