Fall Accidents

Falling Accidents Are the Number One Type of Workers' Comp Claim

Construction workers know that the main danger they face on a job site every day is a falling accident. Whether working on a scaffolding or ladder or on the steel beams many stories up, a fall can result in a serious lifelong injury or death in the blink of an eye.

If you are a construction worker injured in a fall accident on a job site in North Carolina, you are entitled to file for workers' compensation benefits through your employer's insurance carrier. You may also be entitled to seek compensation from a third party that may be liable for the accident, including the scaffolding company, the property owner or a subcontractor working on site.
