Roof Collapse Leaves Hard-Working Employee Injured

Roofers don't need us to remind them that their job is risky. Something about walking on a sloped surface tens of feet (even more) in the air never appealed to us, but we're always amazed and impressed with roofers who have made it their life's work.

A construction worker was injured Wednesday when the roof trusses at a job site collapsed and pinned him underneath the construction debris, the Springfield Fire Department said.

The employee had just climbed down from a ladder when the wooden roof trusses collapsed.

Firefighters said the victim was talking when they arrived. They used a forklift to help remove the debris off the victim.

If you've been injured at work, the best thing to do is call Eric, Randy, or Sarah at 515-225-4485. We find that nearly all of our clients are unaware of how many rights they actually have. These laws are there to protect the employee and to ensure they are properly compensated if an accident should occur.

We will go over your rights with you, and together, we will find the proper course of action to take...and then fight vigorously for your rights. We aren't concerned with your employer being upset with us...we don't represent them in any fashion...we represent YOU.
