Roofing work is a notoriously hazardous occupation. General contractors at roofing construction sites are responsible for adhering to regulations designed to keep roofers safe. If you or a loved one has been injured while engaged in roofing work at a New York City or Long Island construction site, we recommend consulting with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
RGLZ Personal Injury Law has represented injured construction workers as well as people injured as passersby or visitors to construction sites for almost 50 years. When we represent injured roofers and their families, we investigate to discover answers to these key questions:
- Were roofers provided with necessary, recommended fall arrest equipment?
- Were safety brackets, lifelines and safety nets in place as recommended by the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)?
- If you were injured as a passerby when debris fell from a roof, had safety violations occurred leading to that unfortunate incident?
Our years of experience and our track record of successful construction accident case outcomes have prepared us to represent you vigorously after a roofing accident. We are ready to fight for your right to full and fair compensation for your losses and injuries such as:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injury
- Head injury
- Electrical injury
Do not assume that a workers’ compensation claim is your only option. You may have a third-party liability claim against a person or entity such as an equipment manufacturer, a subcontractor who was not your employer, or a property owner. Consult with one of our attorneys after a roofing accident in New York.
