Catastrophic injuries, including wrongful death, can result from accidents related to roof falls.  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 crane falls, trolling hoist falls, scaffolding falls, elevator shaft falls and roof falls. 

However, falls from residential roofs are common, as well.  The most common reasons for being on a residential 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 falls occur because general contractors, roofing contractors and developers choose to ignore 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 others 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.
