Philadelphia Construction Accidents & Injuries
Construction work is demanding and dangerous. In many areas of Pennsylvania and throughout New Jersey, it is also a primary source of income for thousands of families. You depend on your job to support yourself, and you rely on your employer to provide a safe workplace that conforms to federal and state standards. Unfortunately, in an attempt to cut corners and save money, many construction companies put their workers at risk every day. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a construction accident due to someone else’s negligence, an experienced construction accident attorney in Philadelphia will fight for you to receive the compensation you deserve.
Types of Construction Accidents
A construction site offers several opportunities for injury. Some of the most common types of construction accidents include:
- Construction site falls
- Scaffolding accidents
- Trench collapses
- Equipment failure
- Falling objects
- Burn injuries
- Building Collapse
Any type of construction accident has the potential to result in catastrophic personal injuries. While you recover, your medical expenses will continue to pile up, and your inability to work will leave you less and less able to cope with the financial hardship of your injuries.
When you are injured in a construction accident, your employer may do everything in his power to prove that you were at fault. This is financially beneficial to construction companies, and a company that provides an unsafe work environment has already proven their willingness to bend the rules to increase profits. You deserve an aggressive, devoted, and experienced Allentown personal injury lawyer on your side who will fight for your right to fair compensation.
