Roofing is arguably one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.
Not only do they work from numerous heights, oftentimes on slanted roofs, they have to use sharp tools and machinery in order to complete the job. They also have to use ladders or scaffolds to get to the height of the roof of a house or building, which is another risk of the job as they could fall.
However, working from heights isn’t the only risk they are exposed to. Long hours in the sun, especially during the summer months, can cause heat exhaustion or heat stroke, and may eventually lead to skin cancer.
Working on roofs also involves the use of tars and chemicals that could land a roofer in the hospital with severe burns if a mistake occurs.
Although roofers are the most prone to getting injured, they aren’t the only ones. If a roofer, tool, machine, ladder or scaffolds falls, it could hit a person who is on the ground, thus causing them to become injured. Property can also be damaged if one of the above stated falls onto it, especially if it is a car or A/C system. Either way you can expect a lawsuit or claim to come your way either from the injured or the one whose property is damaged.
Injury or property damage aren’t the only reasons a client might sue you. If they are not fully happy with the work, they can sue you and not having Delaware Roofing insurance could mean a big payout.
With a lawsuit/claim comes the likeliness you will have to provide compensation to the plaintiff as the judge may vote in their favor.
