What do I do if I am hurt on a construction site due to a fall from high above the ground?
The first thing someone needs to do is get immediate medical care or treatment. Most of the time if there is a fall on a construction site from height, you need to investigate those cases quickly to preserve evidence. There may be photographs that need to be taken; there may be equipment that people are walking upon that needs to be investigated. There are very specific OSHA regulations related to construction sites and falls from height. Construction personnel need to be tied off depending on the height, depending on what they’re working at, and they have to be tied off as low as four to six feet depending on the circumstances. It’s important that you get to us early so we can do a proper investigation, preserve whatever evidence is available because people that do fall from heights most of the time are seriously hurt and may be killed. We have the experience to be able to do a proper investigation. We have experience to find the proper experts, and stand ready, willing, and able to stand with you in pursuing a case on your behalf.
