Injuries From Falls On Construction Sites
Carrying an armload of materials, a construction worker trips over a stack of boards deposited carelessly in the main walkway. He nearly falls through the stairway opening, catching himself but suffering disfiguring facial lacerations and disabling back injuries that sideline him for six months.
No one is allowed to needlessly endanger others. Construction workers face many dangers on the job, including tripping hazards and the risk of falling from heights. Falling injuries often are preventable accidents attributable to the actions and negligence of other contractors on the same job site.
If you suffered serious injuries from a construction site fall, or if a family member died, contact the law firm of Leonard B. Gabbay, P.C. We can pursue your third-party injury claims for full damages above and beyond workers’ compensation.
