Falls from up high on an Arizona construction site happen fast
Working on a construction site in Arizona often involves working high above the ground. In cities like Phoenix, construction workers sometimes find themselves working in tall skyscrapers. But you don't have to be working many stories above ground to fall and sustain a serious injury. Falls from up high can happen while working on a house or other, lower structures.
Injuries that result from a high fall on a construction site can include broken bones and injuries to the neck, back or spine. Such injuries can sometimes result in a permanent, life-altering disability or even death.
When someone gets hurt because of a fall on a construction site, there are many issues that need to be considered. First and foremost is whether someone else was responsible for such an accident.
How fall accidents on a construction site can happen
Scaffolding injuries often involve construction workers falling from a great height. In many cases, such injuries occurred since the scaffolding was not put together properly or was not safely secured on solid, level ground.
Construction workers involved in roofing or applying roofing materials are also extremely prone to being injured due to falling from a great height. Sometimes, such injuries could have been prevented if proper safety measures were followed at the site. Determining who failed to meet such safety standards can sometimes be very difficult. That's why you need an experienced Arizona construction accident lawyer to help you decide the best course of action.
