Injured on the Job?
A workplace fall can cause serious or catastrophic injuries. In fact, falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries in the U.S. People who work at elevated heights are at increased risk for falls from structures such as ladders, elevators, hoists, exterior and interior scaffolds, and elevator false cars.
At Domnitz & Skemp, S.C., we represent construction workers, roofers, painters, laborers, farm workers and other workers who are injured in falls. As experienced trial lawyers, we can negotiate a settlement or pursue your case at trial if that is in your best interests.

Seeking Compensation From Negligent Third Parties
Our firm represents injured workers in personal injury suits against negligent third parties. While you are most likely entitled to workers' compensation benefits, you may also be able to collect damages from third parties such as subcontractors or manufacturers of defective equipment.
It is important to recover the maximum compensation you are allowed under the law. Workers' comp benefits should help, but they may not be sufficient if you suffer a serious injury. A report by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) shows that on average, falls kill between 150 and 200 construction workers and injure more than 100,000 annually. Some of the most frequent injuries from falls include:
- Brain injuries and concussions
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- Arm injuries
- Elbow injuries
- Leg injuries
- Knee injuries
With more than 70 years of combined experience, our attorneys have the knowledge to determine liability for your accident. We have earned a reputation for excellent legal service, as well as a record of successful verdicts and settlements. Please speak with one of our attorneys today about your workplace injury claim.
