Pursuing Your Personal Injury and Workers' Compensation Claims

Workplace 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 2019, an alarming 775 were in construction jobs, accounting for 17.7 percent of the total fatalities. Many more construction workers suffered serious injuries. Georgelis Injury Law Firm, P.C. concentrates its entire practice on winning compensation for injury victims. We have recovered over $50,000,000 for Lancaster County’s injured workers and accident victims.

If you have been hurt at a construction site, as a worker or otherwise, our team can help you get compensated for your losses. We will develop a plan to recover benefits and compensation for you from all available sources, including the workers’ compensation system, liability insurance and/or a lawsuit against negligent third parties.

Common Causes of Construction Site Injuries

  • Construction vehicle accidents
  • Machinery accidents
  • Scaffolding collapse
  • Fire
  • Explosion
  • Electrocution
  • Exposure to toxic substances
  • Falls from ladders
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Lifting injuries

Through meticulous preparation, Georgelis Injury Law will build your case to collect damages for burns, spinal cord injuries, concussions and other head trauma, herniated cervical and lumbar disks, amputations, crush injuries, fractures and lacerations.

We have successfully handled thousands of claims involving these injuries, making sure our clients are made whole for the losses they have suffered. Insurance companies know that we fight for our clients, both in and out of court, and it shows in the results we get. Make sure the injury and accident attorneys you engage to help you through this process are court-tested—because employers and insurers know if there is no threat of going to trial. Our lawyers have tried well over 100 cases before juries, going head-to-head with big insurance all the time.

Paths to Compensation for Injured Construction Workers

Construction accident claims often involve multiple paths to recovery, and each route requires a different approach. If you are injured on the job, you most likely will have the right to pursue workers’ compensation benefits. However, you may also have additional compensation available to you through other sources.

For example, if a commercial or personal car, van, truck or motorcycle hit you while you were performing a road construction job, we will also pursue a bodily injury claim on your behalf with the auto insurance company of the driver who injured you. Or, if you are hurt by a tow motor or other construction vehicle driven by an employee of a different company, we can bring a third-party claim against the at-fault party.

Similarly, if you were injured while repairing the roof of a house or performing some other type of work, you may have a premises liability claim against the homeowner. And, if your ladder malfunctioned and collapsed, you may have a products liability case against the manufacturer.

By investigating these additional sources of liability, many times, we can win pain and suffering compensation for you, which is something not offered through the Pennsylvania workers comp system.
