Injuries from Work Site Falls
Falls on work sites can be quite serious and result in long-lasting injuries that are not only extremely painful and life-altering, but also expensive, with multiple medical appointments, surgery, rehabilitation, medications, and therapy. These injuries can include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord and head injuries
These injuries can place a substantial burden on the worker and their family, especially if they cannot return to work. An experienced personal injury lawyer should be consulted as quickly as possible following a work site fall to discuss your case and determine what compensation you or your loved one may be entitled to.
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to negligence on the job site or a defective product, an experienced personal injury lawyer can review your claim and determine if there were unsafe working conditions, potential OSHA violations, and other hazards that may have existed at the time of your accident. They will also determine who may be liable for your injuries and damages and what compensation you may be entitled to.
