Construction workers are often required to work at heights. Roof work, wall work and other situations can have construction workers high above the ground as they complete their tasks. While many safety precautions are taken including the use of harnesses and other safety measures, construction workers still suffer serious or fatal injuries from falling from heights.
Common scenarios that lead to workers falling and being injured include:
- Ladder work
- Scaffolding work
- Roof work
- Mezzanine work
Factors that can cause these injuries include:
- Broken ladders
- Broken harnesses
- Improperly filled or covered holes
These types of injuries can cause a wide range of serious injuries such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injuries, broken bones and death. These are very serious injuries that can require extensive medical care. Paying for those medical bills and covering lost wages often require aggressively pursuing compensation. Having the right attorney can make all of the difference.
