Sacramento Construction Site Fall Attorney
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), falls are the most common type of construction site injury. About one in three deaths on a construction site are due to falls. Sadly, most of these accidents are preventable, especially when federal and state regulations are followed and the proper safety procedures are in place.
Most of the time after an accident at a construction site, workers’ compensation is your only recourse, however, in cases like these, when negligence may be involved, you may be entitled to seek compensation through a third-party liability suit. Call a Rosenthal Law construction site fall injury lawyer at (916) 774-7200 to discuss your case. We will help ensure that your rights are protected.

Helping injured people recover from falls and other serious accidents is important to us, which is why we are committed to building the strongest case possible in order to get you the most compensation we can.

- Weak roofs or holes in roofs
- Inadequately marked or covered holes
- Debris-strewn floors
- Scaffolding, ladders and other defective equipment
- Exposed elevator shafts
State and federal regulations regarding safety equipment and procedures are designed to help minimize, if not eliminate, these types of accidents.
