What are My Legal Options as an Injured Roofer? More Inside
The roofing industry is one of the most dangerous in the country, with a high rate of fatalities and catastrophic injuries. In fact, roofing injuries make up over 20 percent of all the severe work injuries in the country on a yearly basis. Individuals working in roofing and construction are highly trained and are well-versed in safety protocol. However, they cannot control other workers or their supervisors who more often than not form the nexus of their injuries on account of negligence. Falls from heights are rarely survivable, and it is not uncommon for roofers to suffer back and spinal injuries that put them out of commission for a long time, or cause them to become paralyzed. Even if you are a member of a union, it may be in your best interests to hire an experienced roofing injuries attorney to ensure adequate compensation for all your injuries now and in the future.

Here are some of the most common causes of roofing accidents:
- Roof pitch which makes the roofs unstable while working on them, making it more likely to slip and fall
- Tripping on items and other hazards on the roof left by other workers
- Working on a roof shortly after inclement weather or during it, such as wind, rain and snow.
- Getting electrocuted by wires that are close to or on a residential roof
- Insufficient work breaks leading to fatigue and poor cognition

Moments after your accident, your body may be in shock and you may have adrenalin pumping through your veins and as a result, you may feel fine or not experience the true extent and pain of your injuries. By asking to be taken to the ER, you’ll have the doctor run a battery of imaging and diagnostic tests to get a true scope of your injuries. You also want to inform your employer about your injury, but make sure to NEVER SIGN ANTYHING before speaking with us. If you’re sustained a roofing injury, we’d love to help you.
