Our Lancaster, PA Firm Represents Victims of Construction Accidents
Pursuing your personal injury and workers compensation claims
Injuries are prevalent in the construction industry. In fact, of the 4,383 private industry job-related deaths that occurred in the United States in 2012, an alarming 775 were in construction jobs, accounting for 17.7 percent of the total fatalities. Many more construction workers suffered serious injuries. Georgelis Law Firm, P.C. focuses on winning compensation for injury victims. If you have been hurt on the job, our team develops a plan to recover benefits for you through the workers compensation program, liability insurance or a lawsuit against negligent third parties.
Types of construction accidents
The construction site is filled with serious risks to your life and health, such as these common causes of injuries:
- Construction vehicle accidents
- Machinery accidents
- Scaffolding collapse
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Falls from ladders
- Repetitive motion injuries
Through meticulous preparation, our attorneys build your case to collect damages for burns, spinal cord injuries, head trauma, herniated disks, amputations, crush injuries, fractures and lacerations. We also take on complex occupational disease cases associated with worksite exposure to harmful chemicals — including carcinogens and asbestos.
Exploring the paths to compensation for injured construction workers
Construction accident claims often involve multiple paths to recovery, and each route requires a different approach. Because you were injured on the job, you may have the right to workers compensation benefits. But you may also have additional compensation available to you. For example, if a car hit you while you were performing a road construction job, we pursue your claim with the auto insurance company of the driver who injured you. Similarly, if you were injured while repairing the roof of a house, you may have a premises liability claim against the homeowner. If your ladder malfunctioned and collapsed, you may have a products liability case against the manufacturer.
