Denver Construction Lawyers for Injured Roofers
Roofers face many risks on a daily basis. Although roofing can be relatively safe when construction companies supply workers with appropriate equipment and training, accidents still happen; and, far too often, roofers are expected to do their jobs without the resources they need to stay safe high above the ground.
If you are a roofer who got hurt on the job, you have rights. You may be eligible for workers’ compensation; and, depending on who was to blame in the accident, you may be entitled to full compensation for all of your injury-related losses (workers’ compensation only covers medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages). At Levine Law, we have decades of experience handling workers’ compensation and personal injury claims in the Denver area. We can help you understand what you have lost, and we can use our experience and resources to fight for the compensation you deserve.
Common Injuries in Roofing Accidents
As a result of our vast experience, we have represented clients diagnosed with virtually all types of traumatic injuries. We are also intimately familiar with the issues involved in construction accident cases. In fact, there is a good chance that our attorneys have handled cases very similar to yours. Since roofing accident cases often involve falls, some of the most common types of injuries roofers suffer include:
- Bone fractures
- Head and neck injuries
- Severe lacerations and contusions (cuts and bruises)
- Soft tissue injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (including concussions)
But, regardless of whether you fell, were injured by a tool or piece of roofing material, or suffered any other type of injury on the job, your situation is the same: You need to seek medical attention (note that you may need to see your employer’s designated medical provider), and you need to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. At Levine Law, we make ourselves available 24/7, and if necessary we can act quickly to make sure we preserve your legal rights.
Do I Need a Lawyer?
If you are like many injured workers, you are thinking about filing a workers’ compensation claim on your own. You assume your employer will treat you fairly, and you are concerned that hiring a lawyer could jeopardize your ongoing employment. Our clients will tell you that this is a mistake – and one that you cannot afford to make when your family’s finances are on the line. At Levine Law, we will:
- Help you understand the true extent of your losses.
- Tell you important information about your rights that your employer and its insurance company won’t.
- Determine if you are entitled to a financial recovery outside of workers’ compensation.
- Negotiate for maximum compensation on your behalf, and take your case to trial if necessary.
- Make sure you have the opportunity to make informed decisions at every step along the way.
