Roof Collapse Accidents
Construction workers face many dangers on every job site, with one out of ten construction workers facing a serious injury on the job according to the National Institute of Occupational Health and Safety. Few of these accidents can be more frightening than a roof collapse. A roof or ceiling can collapse for any number of reasons, including structural failure and failure to follow proper safety procedures on the job, putting construction workers at risk for serious, and fatal, injuries.

Roof Collapse Injuries
A victim of a roof collapse can suffer numerous types of injuries that will vary in severity depending on where the worker was located and what safety equipment was being used at the time of the accident. The type of injuries commonly seen in a roof collapse include:
- Fractures - When heavy roofing falls onto a worker, the blunt force can crush and break bones, often requiring extensive and ongoing medical treatment.
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) - When anyone is struck in the head by a roof or other construction debris, a number of neurological issues can occur, ranging from concussions to severe trauma that includes brain damage, loss of motor and/or oral function, partial or complete paralysis, and memory loss, to name a few.
- Lacerations - Sharp objects falling onto a construction worker can cause severe cuts that can not only lead to infections but also amputations.
- Paralysis - A construction worker that falls from a roof or is crushed due to the weight of a roof collapse can suffer severe spinal injuries that result in paralysis.
- Wrongful death - A roof collapse is an extremely dangerous situation and has the potential to be fatal. Family members left behind have the right to receive compensation for their tragic loss.
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.
