Get Support After A Serious Construction Site Fall

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), falls are the most common type of construction site injury. About one in three deaths on a construction site are due to falls. Sadly, most of these accidents are preventable, especially when federal and state regulations are followed and the proper safety procedures are in place.

Most of the time after an accident at a construction site, workers' compensation is your only recourse, however, in cases like these, when negligence may be involved, you may be entitled to seek compensation through a third-party liability suit. Call one of our construction site injury lawyers at 916-677-4979 to discuss your case and ensure that your rights are protected. We offer free consultations at our offices in Roseville, Rocklin and Sacramento.

Common Causes Of Construction Site Falls

After over two decades of helping clients with their construction accident claims, we have seen many successful recoveries. Helping injured people recover from falls and other serious accidents is important to us, which is why we are committed to building the strongest case possible in order to get you the most compensation we can.

Many construction site falls are preventable, and some common reasons for falls include:

  • Weak roofs or holes in roofs
  • Inadequately marked or covered holes
  • Debris-strewn floors
  • Scaffolding, ladders and other defective equipment
  • Exposed elevator shafts

State and federal regulations regarding safety equipment and procedures are designed to help minimize, if not eliminate, these types of accidents. When preparing our case, we consider every possible area of liability — including company policies and adherence to safety requirements. If there is a liability beyond workers' compensation, we will find it.
