Fall Injuries

Our Lawyers Represent Injured Workers In Communities Throughout North Carolina

Falls are among the leading accidents resulting in workers' compensation claims in North Carolina. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that as many as 10 percent of construction workers will injure themselves in falls from roofs, walls and raised work platforms during a typical year.

Fall injuries don't always result in immediate disabilities such as a broken bone. Often, symptoms of an injury may occur over time, in the form of cracked vertebrae, a brain injury or a torn ligament.

Third-Party Liability Lawsuits For Fall Injuries In North Carolina

In many cases, a workplace fall is caused by negligence on the part of the property owner, a product manufacturer or misconduct by another worker on the job site. If so you may be eligible for a separate recovery from the negligent party in addition to your workers' compensation benefits. If you believe your injury resulted from the negligence or misconduct of another party, you may be entitled to recover additional compensation through a third-party lawsuit. Call us to discuss your case, and we will give you an honest appraisal of your legal options for recovering maximum money damages.
