Roof & Ladder Falls
Working from an elevated location is often part of the job for construction workers, but when a ladder is not secured properly, or people do not employ proper safety precaution on a roof, dangerous accidents can occur. At the law offices of Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty, our Delaware roof fall injury attorneys protect the rights of injured construction workers.
If you have been seriously injured in a construction accident, you are going to miss work, making it hard to keep up with your medical bills and regular expenses. An experienced lawyer can help you consider your full range of recovery options. Whether another subcontractor did not have proper qualifications, or the general contractor was negligent in their supervision, we will determine who was at fault in your accident:
- Falls off roof
- Falls through roof
- Ladder falls
- Scaffolding falls
- Lifting injuries
Many construction workers are entitled to benefits beyond workers' compensation. If someone besides your employer or a co-worker is responsible for the conditions that led to your accident, you may be eligible for a third-party personal injury claim. Unlike workers' compensation, which is capped, there is no limit to the amount you can recover in a personal injury claim.Contact Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty
