Falls From Heights, Slip-and-Falls and Other Falling Accidents
With people working at elevated heights, on uneven surfaces, and with various materials and equipment, serious injuries caused by falls are common on construction sites. Even though construction work is inherently risky, negligent workers and companies often contribute to the cause of serious construction accidents. If you or someone you care about has suffered a serious injury in a fall on a construction site, it is important to speak with an experienced attorney.
Even if you were working on the site and you are entitled to workers' compensation, you may also have a legitimate personal injury claim if negligence was a contributing factor in your accident.
For example, if another contractor left materials or tools on the site, which caused you to slip, fall and become injured, you are likely entitled to compensation from the negligent third party.
