Giving a Voice to the Injured

Roofing Accidents

Roofers have a dangerous line of work that puts workers at risk of serious injury on a regular basis. When working with construction materials and tools on an elevated, potentially unstable surface, there are plenty of ways for the workday to go wrong.

Common Roofing Accidents, Injuries, and Damages

Some accidents are especially common among roofers, including:

  • Hot tar burns
  • Falling from ladders
  • Falling from rooftops
  • Falling through holes in the roof
  • Roofing equipment malfunctions
  • Electrocution due to exposed wiring
  • Stepping, sitting, or falling on upturned nails
  • Sudden physical illness due to intense heat and exposure to the sun

A serious roofing accident can lead to traumatic brain injuries, amputation, and other physical harm, but even minor roofing injuries can be highly problematic for workers. Roofing injuries tend to produce large expenses rather suddenly, causing financial harm for workers and their loved ones.

Such damages typically include:

  • Lost wages
  • Hospital bills
  • Job-related retraining
  • High cost of medications
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Surgery and other necessary medical treatments

In order to avoid paying the full cost of medication, treatments, etc. out of your own pocket, you will likely need to access workers’ compensation benefits and fight for a reasonably-sized payout.
