Construction workers face a number of risks every day at work. Unsafe scaffolding, heavy equipment and falling objects can cause a serious accident at any time. These incidents can leave construction workers with a traumatic brain injury, broken bones and other severe injuries.
When construction accidents occur, Massaro Law will advocate strongly for you. We have extensive experience representing injured construction workers in Greensburg and the surrounding communities.
We’ll Help You Receive Workers’ Compensation Benefits
When construction workers suffer an injury on the job, they are typically eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Our attorneys understand how to navigate Pennsylvania’s complex workers’ compensation system. We will guide you through the process to help you gain benefits to help ease the financial burdens of a construction accident.
Did Another Party’s Negligence Contribute To The Accident?
Many construction accident injuries typically involve two separate cases. In addition to the workers’ compensation case, these accidents may also involve the civil liability of another entity. While claiming workers’ compensation benefits generally prevents you from suing your employer, there are those who you may be able to sue for damages if their negligence caused your injury.
Workers’ compensation provides a limited number of benefits. Personal injury cases, on the other hand, allow workers to recover full compensation for everything that they have lost, including pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses.
Our attorneys take the time to work closely with you to analyze whether you are eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit for a construction accident. We have helped injured construction workers in Pennsylvania recover damages from negligent parties, including:
- Property owners
- Operators of heavy machinery
- Makers of dangerous or defective products
