Protecting Your Health and Your Future
Roofing is heavy work performed in a dangerous environment. Some of the injuries that affect roofing workers include:
- Back injuries from lifting
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
If you have suffered a serious injury, your body needs time to heal. Unfortunately, the workers' compensation carrier may not give you that time. Your insurance carrier can stop your benefits at any time by claiming you are no longer injured or your injury is not work-related. It often takes a lawyer's help to obtain the medical and wage replacement benefits you deserve.
If you suffer permanent impairment, you are entitled to a lump-sum payment for the percentage of disability that you have suffered. Our lawyers can put you in the strongest possible position to obtain a fair settlement.
