If Im Hurt in a Roofing Accident Do I Need a New Jersey Construction Lawyer How Do Falls From

Q
If Im hurt in a roofing accident do I need a New Jersey construction lawyer? How do falls from roofs compare to other types of construction accidents?
A
According to the U.S. Occupational Health & Safety Administration (OSHA), the cost of a roofer’s fall from an elevation is significantly more than when other construction workers fall from elevations. According to OSHA, when a roofer falls from an elevation the cost is approximately $106,000 compared to the approximate cost of under $50,000 for other types of construction workers.

The difference in cost suggests that roofers may face more significant injuries that result in higher medical expenses and/or more lost income due to time that they are unable to work.
