Falls from Heights

Fort Lauderdale Construction Accident Attorneys – (888) 499-6206

According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), falls from heights are the leading cause of severe injuries and death on construction sites. Approximately 40% of all construction site fatalities are caused by falling. In many circumstances, the construction worker injured in the accident played no role for causing it, only being hurt due to the negligence of a supervisor or another worker.

If you or a loved one fell from a great height on a construction accident and suffered a serious injury, call (888) 499-6206. Rosenberg & Rosenberg, P.A. and our Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys can help you determine the best way to pursue compensation for your damages. Some people will qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, others might need to file a personal injury claim, and more still might have the option to do both. Our lawyers are here to make certain you explore and utilize every available avenue.

Injuries Caused by Fall from Height Accidents

Construction workers may fall from a high point on the site if they are not provided a safety harness and other fall-proofing equipment. In other instances, the structure the worker stands upon, like a scaffolding, may collapse underneath them. There are even instances where a neglectful coworker knocks someone else off a ledge in a terrible accident.

Catastrophic injuries caused in fall from height accidents often include:

No matter the exact cause of the accident, or the extent of the injuries suffered, the injured construction worker should be afforded ample compensation. A portion of lost wages and medical bills should be covered by workers’ compensation benefits, whereas a personal injury claim can seek those damages and more, including pain and suffering.
