A: If you were working for someone else or on someone else’s property, you may have a claim. If you were injured on the job, you should probably call a worker’s compensation lawyer. If you not working when you were injured, for instance, if you were helping a friend with their roof, you should probably call a personal injury lawyer. There are lawyers in my firm, Burg Simpson, who represent clients in both workers compensation and personal injury cases. If you fell from your own roof, it may be a different answer. But without more facts, such as whether someone else’s negligence caused your fall, that’s impossible to say. Bottom line: You should consider calling a lawyer. Good luck.
