Causes of roofer accidents
If you work as a roofer or in another job that requires you to work on roofs, nobody needs to tell you that your work comes with injury risks. What may surprise you is the degree of risk involved with your work. According to research, residential roofing has three times the risk of fatal injuries as the average construction job. It is nine times as risky as the average occupation. That research indicates the most common causes of roofer accident injuries include:
- Inadequate or nonexistent employer planning
- Little to no workforce training
- Lack of use of fall protection measures
- Little or no adherence to OSHA safety standards
Roofing accidents can occur on commercial and residential construction sites and lead to catastrophic or fatal injuries. Accidents and injuries during roof work can involve:
- Lack of safety equipment
- Defective safety equipment
- Falling objects
- Slip and falls from roof
- Ladders falling or collapsing
- Roof collapse
Common roofing accident injuries
Falls from heights occur frequently in roofing. The higher the roof, the more severe injuries tend to occur. Common injuries in roofer accidents include:
- Concussion and traumatic brain injury
- Head and neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken or fractured bones
- Sprains and strains
- Back and torso injuries
- Severe lacerations
- Damage to major joints like hips, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows and wrists
It is important after a roofing accident to obtain medical care as quickly as possible. Attempting to return to work before receiving treatment can make your injuries worse or expose you to a second injury.
Who is liable for my injuries?
If you were injured in a roofing accident, you may have one or more claims to pursue with different legal processes and remedies. If you were injured on the job, you may be able to obtain treatment and lost wages through workers’ compensation.
You may also have personal injury claims against one or more parties in addition to workers’ compensation. If the negligence of a third party (other than your employer) caused your injuries, you may have one or more additional claims.
In a personal injury lawsuit or insurance claim for your roofer accident injuries, you can obtain a wider range of damages than work comp. These can include economic damages such as medical expenses, lost wages and lost future earning capacity. You may also claim non-economic damages such as pain and suffering.
Potentially liable third parties in your roofing accident may involve:
- Roofing company
- Construction company
- Contractors or subcontractors
- Property owner
- Property manager
- Government entity
- Tenant or renter
- Neighbor to the property
- Ladder or other equipment manufacturer
Our Denver roofing accident lawyers will investigate your case thoroughly to assess the best path to pursue fair compensation for your injuries.
