One out of every ten construction workers is injured each year in the United States. That’s a nearly 71% higher injury rate than any other industry. When looking at workplace fatalities as a whole in our nation, construction accidents account for 20% each year.
At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, P.C., our top workers’ compensation attorneys make construction worker injuries a concentration of their legal practice. We know only half of serious workplace injuries are ever reported, which means the injured construction worker will never receive the compensation they deserve. When you’re hurt on the job, it is imperative to contact an experienced workers’ comp attorney for a free case review. You’ll quickly find you have nothing to lose—and A LOT to gain!
The most common construction injuries are:
If you have been injured while working on a construction site, or you have lost a loved one to a construction-related accident, you could be entitled to seek financial compensation through benefits afforded by Pennsylvania’s workers compensation law, liability insurance and/or a lawsuit against negligent third parties. The best construction worker accident and injury lawyers always make sure to seek out every potential source of money for their clients.
For example, if you were hit by a car, truck or commercial vehicle while performing a road construction job, a claim can be pursued with the auto insurance company of the driver who hit you, in addition to your construction worker workers’ comp claim. Similarly, if you were injured while repairing the roof of a house or as a result of some defect or dangerous condition on the homeowner’s property, you may have a premises liability claim against the property or business owner, as well as your PA workers’ compensation claim. And, if a ladder or scaffolding malfunctioned and collapsed, causing construction worker injuries, you may have a products liability case against the manufacturer as a separate and distinct claim from your workers’ comp claim.
You don’t just need any attorney to help with your construction worker injury claim(s)—you need a top lawyer in this field to guide you through the process, protect you and your family from the methods and tactics used by big insurance and to get you every penny in compensation you deserve.

We also take on complex occupational disease cases associated with worksite exposure to harmful chemicals — including carcinogens and asbestos.
