Falls From Heights

Help for People Injured After a Fall from a Great Height

Skilled personal injury lawyers protecting families in Nashville, Knoxville and Hendersonville

Tripping and falling on the sidewalk can cause an injury; falling from a great height, however, can be catastrophic. That is why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that any worker who is more than 6 feet off the ground be given safety equipment like harnesses and railings, to decrease the chance of a fall.

If you have fallen – off a ladder, from a roof, off of a scaffold – and you were high up when it happened, you have options. At the Rocky McElhaney Law Firm, we help to protect victims and their families after a serious fall led to serious injuries. We are a team of experienced and aggressive personal injury lawyers serving clients in and around Nashville, Knoxville, Hendersonville, and across Tennessee and we want to hear your story.

What are some common fall hazards?

Falls from heights are a common cause of serious injuries. Some of these fall hazards are occupation-related, such as construction workers or electricians working on a multi-story building. People fall from many different places, and the severity of their injuries depends on the height of the fall, what they land on and how they land. Some common hazards for falls from heights include:

  • Buildings
  • Balconies
  • Windows
  • Roofs
  • Construction sites
  • Scaffolding
  • Stairs
  • Ladders
  • Vehicles

Elderly adults over age 65 are at a high risk for falls due to factors such as poor vision, unbalanced gait, problems with their feet, lower body weakness and hazards in the home. Young children are also at risk for falls from heights if they routinely play on trampolines, use playground equipment or jungle gyms, or dive into swimming pools or lakes.

Many falling accidents can be prevented with proper safety precautions, lighting and warning signs. When someone else’s lack of attention to these types of factors has led to your injury, RML is ready to help. If you have suffered with a traumatic brain injury, broken bones or a spinal cord injury leading to paralysis, or any serious personal injury, we are ready to fight for you.
