  • Falls through holes — Often, temporary measures are taken to cover up holes on a job site. When poorly or improperly done, they can create a false sense of security and can lead to injury when they collapse. Unsecured or temporary, covers on floor openings be can be traps for a construction site worker.
  • Falls from roofs — Frequently, workers perform tasks on the roof of a building without guards, rails or other protective measures in place. If you have been injured falling from an unsafe roof, floor or equipment, Flynn Law Firm will focus on you obtaining full and fair compensation.
  • Falls from unguarded openings on elevators — If you have fallen from a work elevator that had not been properly guarded, the law firm will protect your rights to damages.

The firm is adept at gathering the contract plans and specifications, the sub-contractor submittals, photos and contractors’ records to compare them to the accident and to see what went wrong. The firm identifies the likely culprits to find the source of the victim’s compensation, from the employer, the workers’ compensation carrier, contractors, subcontractors, architects and other responsible parties.
