Who is Liable in a Roofer Accident?
Workers compensation is available to employees injured in roofer accidents regardless of who is at fault. Benefits covered under workers compensation include medical expenses and disability expenses. Generally, a worker covered by workers compensation cannot then hold their employer liable in a lawsuit.
Employers, however, do have a legal obligation to ensure safe working conditions and failure to do so can result in liability. Specifically in cases where the employer, owner, or contractor failed to provide a safe environment or proper safety equipment.
It is best to consult with an experienced Fort Myers roofing accident attorney who will investigate the cause of the accident to determine if the employer is at fault and who you should seek damages from.
