The law firm of Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP help injured people throughout New York City and the surrounding areas. Our roofing accident injury attorneys in New York City take pride in serving men and women who have been injured in the course of their work.
New York City law recognizes the inherent dangers of working on roofs and other heights. Contractors and owners are required to provide proper safety equipment. As a result, injured roofers are often able to file lawsuits in addition to workers’ compensation claims. Although our law firm does not handle workers’ compensation claims, we regularly file personal injury lawsuits against the responsible parties. Our thorough investigation, aggressive litigation, and astute negotiation skills set us apart from other law firms.
Roofing is demanding, sometimes hazardous labor. Some of these risks include falling from heights and the presence of overhead power lines. Roofers can suffer burns due to hot tar. Even climbing up and down a ladder to get to a roof has its own risks. Roofers can fall from ladders or scaffolding. Even when all safety measures are followed, roofing involves an element of danger. When proper safety measures are not followed, serious injuries are a tragic and all too common result. These construction injuries can threaten your ability to work and make it impossible for you to support your family.
If you have sustained a serious injury while working on a roof, we want to hear from you. Give our law firm a call today at 212-344-1000 or contact us online. In all cases, we do not charge fees unless we are successful in your case. We can come to you if you cannot come to us.
