Boston Personal Injury - Falls From Scaffolding and Roofs
At Kenney & Conley, our experience with the investigation and proof of severe accident cases benefits clients suffering injuries in workplace falls. While the injured worker faces a long and protracted physical recovery, these cases present several challenges to plaintiff's counsel: identifying the defendants who might be held accountable for damages, proving liability against nonemployer defendants, and documenting the full extent of the plaintiff's physical and economic losses. For a free consultation about your need for personal injury damages following a serious fall, contact the Massachusetts workplace accident attorneys at Kenney & Conley in Braintree.
Whether the accident occurred on an indoor ladder while replacing overhead lights or on a high scaffold or bucket lift while washing windows or sandblasting, a sudden fall can result in such serious injuries as the following:
- Traumatic brain damage or closed head injuries
- Damage to the spinal cord and resulting paralysis
- Multiple fractures involving the arms, legs, pelvis, and joints
- Severe soft tissue injuries to the back, ankles, wrist, or shoulders
In developing a personal injury claim involving falls from heights, our lawyers are careful to make sure that the full range of your damages are considered and presented in the most persuasive manner possible. The claim will include not only the loss of income and medical expenses that are the most obvious consequences of the accident, but will also detail the costs of physical therapy, future surgery, job retraining, adaptive technology, and in-home assistance, all as necessary.
To establish liability against a given defendant is probably the greatest challenge in a case involving a severe fall. Our familiarity with the construction industry and the safety standards that apply to a wide variety of occupations can help us pinpoint the lapses and failures that indicate a given party's negligence, whether a general contractor, project manager, property owner, or equipment manufacturer is most at fault.
