Protecting Workers Who Have Been Injured on the Job

Employees on construction sites perform some of the most dangerous work, and are constantly at risk of serious injury and death. Even with current safety rules and regulations on-site, workers who are following the proper precautions and wearing safety equipment may be hurt by items and situations that are out of their control. Because these injuries occur on the job, construction accident cases can be extremely complex.

Common Causes of Construction Accidents

Some workers may be eligible to collect worker's compensation benefits, while others can also recover damages from contractors, subcontractors, and other parties that are separate from their employers. At Piscitello Law, our Philadelphia personal injury lawyer has nearly three decades of experience investigating and litigating construction accident claims.

We can help you explore all possible avenues for recovering the damages that you need for medical bills, lost wages, and more.
