Helping Injured Roofers Pursue Workers’ Compensation Benefits
While there is a level of risk involved in roofing, most construction workers are very comfortable with the elements involved in the job — going up and down a ladder too many times to count in one day, working at great heights while atop scaffolding, and balancing in precarious situations while on residential and commercial roofs. It is all in a day’s work for many roofers and construction workers.
When a roofing accident occurs, it can take the worker by surprise. Ladders that were thought to be safe and in proper working order can fail. Scaffolding can be improperly constructed. Suddenly, a normal day at work can turn into a frightening event that results in serious injury, including back and head injuries, and the loss of ability to work.
