Construction Site Falls

Falls resulting in serious injuries are common events on construction sites. When falls are caused by negligence, an injured person may be able to take legal action to recover damages and compensation. At Brady, Brady & Reilly (BBR), our experienced attorneys help injured workers who have been injured in construction accidents. We can advise you about filing a claim after a fall.

 

Your Decisions, Our Experience
Call (201) 997-0030

When you meet with one of our trial lawyers about your construction site accident, you will learn about the legal process involved in a claim. You will find out about your options and your rights and whether there are time limits on filing a claim. You will discuss your chances of success and how long it may take to obtain a result. You will have all the information you need to make decisions about your case.

 

What You Need to Know

If you are employed by a general contractor or property owner, injuries that occur on the job are covered by the state’s workers compensation system. However, if you are employed by a subcontractor, you may be eligible to take legal action independent of workers comp. Additionally, if you are simply passing by a construction site and slip and fall, you may be able to file a claim.

 

Examples of Cases

Our firm handles cases involving construction site falls such as these:

  • Falls from roofs or through holes in roofs
  • Falls from scaffolding and cranes
  • Falls from ladders
  • Falling into holes in the ground
  • Falls from lifts and hoists

 

We evaluate your case, investigate the site, determine the extent and cost of your injuries and develop the best course of action for you. We consult with industry and medical experts to validate the facts of the case. We determine how OSHA regulations were violated. We take all steps necessary to build a strong claim for you and are always prepared, whether for trial or settlement negotiations.
