Pursuing Compensation For Injuries Suffered In A Construction Fall

We don't need to tell you that construction work is dangerous and that falls are a common risk. The fact that you're reading this page suggests that you or someone close has suffered a serious fall and needs to know what legal options you have for seeking compensation.

At Rhine Law Firm, P.C., our Wilmington construction accident attorneys can help you pursue the path that makes the most sense for your specific situation. We encourage you talk with us in a free initial consultation.

How Did Your Injury Happen?

Falls can happen in so many different ways on a construction site. These include:

  • Elevated platforms that lack a proper railing
  • Scaffolding collapse
  • Uncovered holes in the floor or slippery surfaces
  • Dangerous equipment without guardrails

Employers have duties under federal and North Carolina state law to provide reasonably safe working conditions. This involves training workers on appropriate safety procedures and, when necessary, issuing personal protective equipment (PPE), such as a harness that could prevent a worker from falling.

What Options Might You Have Besides Workers' Comp?

If you are an employee who suffered a construction fall injury on the job, workers' compensation should provide financial assistance. Workers' comp is designed to cover such things as lost wages, medical bills and other costs. Our firm can guide you through the process of asserting your claim for benefits.

Keep in mind that, if your fall was the fault of a third-party, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim that goes beyond workers' compensation.

What if you did not have employee status? Here, too, we encourage you to talk with us to discuss your right to bring a Wilmington personal injury claim to hold those who caused your fall accountable.

Our firm has the practical experience to assert your rights effectively. This includes the ability to bring take appropriate legal action, such as a wrongful death suit, in cases of fatal falls.
