Catastrophic injuries, including wrongful death can result from a seemingly low roof fall, not to mention from the roof of a multi story building.  Even the most experienced roofers and contractors are at risk from falling from elevated heights.

Most falls occur on the premises of a construction site.  These can include construction site falls, crane falls, trolling hoist falls, scaffolding falls, elevator shaft falls and roofer falls.  Other times it's a handyman working on your house that falls from your home's roof.  Sometimes it's simply a family member, relative or friend that's helping you with some roof work that happens to fall off.  The most common reasons for being on a roof include roof repairs or roof maintenance such as roof sweeping or pressure cleaning.

Other elevated height falls can include window cleaner falls, pressure cleaner falls, plastering falls and painter falls.

Many roof fall accidents occur because many general contractors, roofing contractors and developers choose to overcome laws, including OSHA rules and regulations, meant to protect worker safety.  Other times, it's the property owner's failure to implement safety precautions to help protect its guests, employees, customers and other that may have access to the building's roof top.  Children allowed unfettered access to any roof top can create an unsafe and dangerous situation for the child which should an accident or injuries occur may be considered gross or willful negligence on behalf of the property owner.
