Construction Accidents and Unsafe Equipment
Construction sites are filled with dangerous tools, vehicles, machinery and equipment that all have the potential to cause serious injuries or fatalities.
If you have been injured by unsafe equipment or conditions at a construction site, you may be eligible to receive more than workers' compensation. Contact the construction accident attorneys at MyPhillyLawyer in Philadelphia. Our attorneys offer a free initial consultation to discuss your legal options.
Getting to the Heart of the Issue
One of our lawyers will ask you questions about the accident that caused your injury. Were you working at the time? Who is your employer? Was an employee of another contractor or subcontractor involved? What tools, vehicles, or other equipment were involved in the accident? Were proper safety precautions being practiced? Were safety devices in place and operational?
Assessing Your Options
Once we understand exactly what happened to you, we will be able to assess who is responsible for compensating you for your injuries and other damages. In some cases, your medical bills and a portion of your weekly wages will be paid through workers' compensation. In other cases, you will be able to recover the remainder of your lost wages, compensation for pain and suffering, and other damages.
Construction accidents caused by defective or otherwise unsafe equipment can cause extremely serious injuries, including brain injuries, amputations and paralyzing spinal cord injuries. Our lawyers can help you obtain the compensation you need after a life-altering injury.
