One of the most common serious injuries on construction sites is falling from heights. This is particularly true of sites on the East Coast because of the immense buildings. Even when these falls are not fatal, injuries are often severe, and require months or even years of recovery. This can include rehabilitation, surgeries and the possibility of medical aid to assist with permanent disability.
If you or a loved one was injured due to a fall on a construction site, it is important to reach out to a skilled legal team to understand your rights to recovery.
