Construction Accidents

Philadelphia Construction Accident Lawyers

Providing Aggressive Representation When You Need it Most

Even when you follow all the safety procedures that pertain to your work site, such as wearing the proper protective gear, accidents can still take place. When that happens, it is your right to receive compensation from the parties responsible for the lack of appropriate safety measures on their end.

The Philadelphia personal injury lawyers at Kwartler Manus, LLC know how to investigate the party at fault, be it your employer or a third party such as a sub-contractor or the manufacturer of faulty equipment. They are prepared to fight aggressively on your behalf to ensure you recover the money you need for medical bills, wage compensation for time off of work, and any other funds you are entitled to receive.

Some types of accidents that can take place at a construction site include:

  • Slips and falls
  • Caught in malfunctioning equipment
  • Electrocution
  • Burns
  • Crushed or broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Twisted ankle
  • Strain from heavy lifting
  • Head trauma

Navigating Worker’s Compensation

Your employer is required by law to pay you the lost wages that build up as you recover from a work-related injury. This is called workers' compensation. According to the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act, any injury or disease that you experience as a result of working on a construction site must be compensated by the employer. This is “regardless of [your] previous physical condition,” which means that any disease or injury that is aggravated, reactivated, or accelerated by the working conditions at the construction site makes you eligible for worker’s compensation. The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act also includes monetary recovery for death that occurs as a result of the construction site conditions, or as a result of being injured on the job at a construction site.

You Do Not Have to Do This Alone

We know that navigating the process of workers’ compensation can be difficult when employers do not want to take responsibility. Our Philadelphia personal injury lawyers are experienced in handling cases of construction accidents and are prepared to fight aggressively to protect your rightful compensation so that you can focus on recovery. Because we operate on a contingency basis, our clients do not pay a penny until we have won their case!

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to a construction accident, call Kwartler Manus, LLC at (267) 214-8608 to find out what you are eligible to receive!
