Roofing Fall Expertise

We understand the safety measures necessary to protect the men and women working at dangerous heights to roof our homes, office buildings and commercial centers.

Often in such cases, contractors claim the injured roofer was at fault. In these complex cases, SMBB construction fall attorneys rely upon both their extensive experience and the expertise of outstanding construction safety experts to put the onus back on contractors. Were all OSHA regulations and industry standards met? Did the general contractor fulfill its contractual obligations to provide for worker safety?

If the fall was off the edge of the roof, we want to know:

  • Was the edge clearly marked by warning flags?
  • Was a safety monitor posted to warn roofers they were nearing the edge?
  • Were roofers appropriately tied off?

If the fall was through a hole in the roof:

  • Was the hole properly covered up or barricaded?

Compensation for Roofing Falls

Property owners, general contractors, contractors, construction managers, construction companies and equipment manufacturers may all be liable for construction falls. SMBB roofing fall attorneys work tenaciously to help you get all the compensation to which you may be entitled - including compensation for pain and suffering, emotional trauma, medical costs, lost income and future earnings.
