Construction Falls: Construction Accident Lawyer in Queens
Did you fall while working at a construction job?
Working in construction is a dangerous profession. An accident involving a fall can lead to severe or permanent injury, whether a fall from scaffolding or in another situation. If you are a construction worker and fell while performing your work duties, then you need to contact a Queens construction accident lawyer immediately.
Gary E. Rosenberg has served as counsel in a range of personal injury cases for over 30 years, and is the recipient of the Avvo Client's Choice Award for 2012. Throughout our years in practice, we have achieved many notable victories, and we are prepared to represent you if you were injured in a fall on the jobsite.
A construction worker can fall from a ladder, roof, lift, or hoist, or can fall from one floor to another, or can fall when scaffolding is incorrectly installed and collapses, or directly off a scaffolding installation. In some cases, safety regulations have been violated. Your employer is required to protect you from harm by keeping the jobsite safe, so there is no unnecessary risk of injury. A construction worker may slip on debris or construction materials and equipment that has not been properly cleaned up or stored. Injuries resulting from these fall accidents can be broken bones, back or neck injuries, traumatic brain injuries, or spinal cord injuries. Any of these injuries can force you to a long period of hospitalization and the need for rehabilitation. A fall could lead to a tragic loss of life, leaving the family bereft, and with no income. These cases must be addressed with help from a legal professional who is highly skilled in personal injury law.
