A mycentraljersey.com article reported that a 35-year-old construction worker fell 30 feet from a Montgomery Township home as he was working on its roof. Investigators at scene said that the worker fell after trying to adjust scaffolding attached to the exterior of a second-story window. He was found lying on the ground on top of construction debris, and was conscious when emergency personnel arrived. The construction worker is said to be in stable condition, but fractured both his neck and femur during the fall. Further investigation into the construction accident in New Jersey is still being conducted by the Montgomery Township Detective Bureau and OSHA.
Construction site fall injuries can lead to paralysis, brain injury, spinal injury, and even death, especially when scaffolds, towers, tall buildings, roofs, or ladders are involved. Being injured in a construction accident not only inflicts catastrophic injuries that can take years to recover from, on top of the extreme amount of pain and suffering one feels during the accident, but creates financial burdens as well, particularly those costs brought on by the accident, such as medical bills and physical therapy fees that can pose difficult for victims and families to successfully manage.
