Injured By Scaffolding, Roofing Or A Ladder?
Scaffolding and ladders need to be manufactured, maintained and used properly to ensure that workers at construction sites are kept safe. Any failures could lead to serious injuries. Workers who suffer serious injuries after falling from roofs, scaffolding or ladders are entitled to compensation in some form, most often workers’ comp. At The Law Offices of Bailey & Burke, we know all of the avenues available for compensation, and we follow those avenues to get the most financial benefits for the accident victims we represent.
Our lawyers have been serving Massachusetts since 1971. We have a success rate of 99.6 percent in personal injury cases, which include cases involving construction work accidents.

Most falling accident claims are handled under the Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation Act. Our role is to work with uncooperative employers and insurance companies. It is not uncommon for injured workers to get the runaround from these companies, adding unneeded stress to an already difficult situation. We refuse to let these businesses take advantage of injured employees. We make certain that the people we represent get the necessary benefits, including payment for lost wages and medical treatment.
Personal Injury Claims
Construction sites are unique in that there are often many businesses working in the same place. This fact means additional avenues of compensation are sometimes available in scaffolding, roof and ladder accident cases. When a fall is caused by the negligence of an employee who works for a different employer than the victim, a personal injury claim can be filed against the other employer. This is referred to as a third-party work accident claim. This is beneficial because these types of claims allow for more compensation than work comp claims, such as compensation for pain and suffering, as well as consequential damages.
No Fees Unless You Win
In construction accident cases, we charge no fees unless you win. Our fees are based on a reasonable percentage of the compensation we obtain for you.
