Construction Accidents

Job Site Injury Claims

Construction sites are dangerous places. Despite state and local safety regulations, workers are seriously injured and killed in construction-related accidents far too often.

Construction accident claims are legally complex. It takes an experienced lawyer to sort out liability among all the parties involved and quantify the injured person’s right to financial compensation.

Who Is Responsible?

Our lawyers will listen as you describe how you were injured and ask you questions about what happened. Then we will identify the liable party or parties. A construction worker cannot sue his or her employer, and benefits are generally limited to workers compensation. However, many construction accidents are caused by other parties — other subcontractors, the general contractor, the building or property owner, or the manufacturer of a defective product may bear responsibility. Because of the legal relationships among all the parties as well as their multiple insurers, it is important to be represented by a law firm that understands complex business relationships as well as personal injury litigation.

Whether you were injured in a building construction project, a highway project, an office build-out or a residential remodeling project, please contact our office in West Chester, Pennsylvania, to arrange a free consultation.
