Serious injuries may result from a fall at work
Workers who perform their jobs from heights face risks of serious injury resulting from falls. Construction workers, roofers, linemen, painters are a few occupations in which workers can fall and sustain catastrophic and even fatal injuries.

At the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, we provide the aggressive advocacy workers need to try to obtain the compensation and benefits they may deserve. Call or email our firm today.
Determining liability after a fall injury
Falls at a construction site tend to occur where several contractors are on-site at the same time. In determining liability in a workplace accident, we may discover that someone other than your employer was responsible for the accident. In such a case, we may be able to file a third-party claim against the entity that created a hazardous situation on the site.
Serious falls may occur as a result of any of the following conditions (among others):
- Poorly maintained scaffolding
- Failure to provide proper safety equipment (e.g., a harness)
- Poorly maintained crane pulleys
- Scaffolding installed too close to power lines or other hazards
Sometimes an electrical shock from a power line might cause a worker to fall and sustain an injury. Falls can lead to serious injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord damage, head trauma and injuries requiring further surgery.
