What Causes Roofing Accidents?
Roofing is a high-risk profession that requires constant security and focus. There are multiple factors that can cause you to be involved in an accident during the job. One of the biggest causes of roofing injuries is ladder falls.
Another factor leading to such accidents is a lack of training. If you were not sufficiently trained by your employer, your employer can be held liable if they did not utilize enough resources to ready you for the job. Another cause could be insufficient protective equipment (PPE), including hats, gloves, footwear, harnesses, clothing and facial protection.
An inadequate amount of protective or safety equipment can lead to accidents and cause the employer or equipment maker to be held liable. Your attorney will collect all information necessary from the incident to build your claim and deal with any and all necessary insurance providers to give you the best coverage possible.
Make Your Claim Right Away
It is important that if you have suffered a roofer accident and suspect negligence/liability, you must file your claim as soon as you can. In Florida, you get a four-year window to file a valid personal injury claim. While that may seem long, the legal process can take time. To get the best compensation and coverage possible, you should file your claim as soon as possible.
