Falls from Heights

Get in Touch with an Alexandria Construction Accident Lawyer Today by Calling (571) 290-2390

It is not uncommon for construction workers to walk across a rooftop, work on scaffolding, or be perched in a dangerously high place. Construction workers must also regularly climb up ladders, climb steps, and perform other activities that create a risk of serious injury from falling.

If you have fallen from scaffolding or a ladder, beam, rooftop, or higher floor and have been hurt on the job, contact The Barrera Law Firm today and let us be your Alexandria construction accident attorneys.

Injuries Resulting from Falls from Heights

As an employee in a dangerous line of work, it is largely the duty of your employer to preserve your well-being by ensuring that the work space is as safe as possible. When proper safety procedures are not followed, workers can be seriously injured.

Many construction site accidents resulting from falls from heights tend to cause serious physical injuries, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Bruising and damage to internal organs
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Multiple fractures
  • Disfigurement
  • Death

Damages and Losses Associated with Serious Falls

Any one of these injuries could be enough to keep you out of work for life and stick you with hefty medical expenses for years to come. The serious injuries that can result from a hard fall can create the need for multiple surgeries, in-patient rehabilitation, long-term therapy, pain medication, and any other expenses associated with long-term care, which can be devastatingly costly in cases of serious brain damage.

The losses accompanied with serious construction site injuries are compounded by the losses associated with extended time spent away from work, especially if the injured person is never able to return to the job site. Falls from heights can result in years of unemployment, lost savings, lost inheritance for children, depleted retirement accounts, and inability to pay expenses such as auto loans, mortgages, etc. In short, the results of a fall can be devastating.

We can help you hold the responsible parties accountable and we will work tirelessly to make sure you get the compensation you need and the results you deserve.

If you have been injured in a fall on your job site, call The Barrera Law Firm today at (571) 290-2390.
