Fighting for Full Compensation for the Victims of Construction Site Falls
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), falls are the leading cause of fatalities in the construction industry. Falls from roofs and other heights account for one-third of all construction-related deaths. Roof falls also cause countless severe injuries to workers every year. Many roof fall accidents take place because workers are forced to perform their job under extremely dangerous conditions.

Common Causes of Roof Falls
Negligence claims involving falls often include one of two factors:
- Inadequate maintenance and cleanup: Debris, tools and other materials left on roofs can pose slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall hazards.
- Insufficient construction safety gear: Construction project deadlines, financial constraints and other pressures can result in dangerous shortcuts such as construction supervisors failing to provide workers with fall restraints and other vital safety equipment.
