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

Construction sites can be dangerous when proper care is not taken. Employees may be required to work from great heights or in harsh outdoor conditions. In addition, the use of heavy machinery, noxious chemicals, and other hazards may present additional dangers, especially when proper precautions, like protective equipment, adequate training, and posted warnings, are not taken.

Construction accidents are often caused by one or more of the following:

  • Lack of supervision or inadequate supervision
  • Defective machinery or equipment
  • Dropped loads
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Negligent blasting and tunneling procedures
  • Collapsed scaffolding, walls, or roofs
  • Unprotected holes, floor openings, and open stairways
  • Improperly handled gasses or chemicals
  • Insufficient fall prevention systems
  • Insufficient bracing or support of concrete structures

Who Is Liable in a Construction Accident Lawsuit?

In construction accident cases, some workers may be eligible to collect workers’ compensation benefits from their employer, while others can also recover damages from third-party contractors, subcontractors, and other parties that are separate from their employers. At Piscitello Law, our Philadelphia construction accident 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. From negligent employers who did not provide adequate training or protection, to manufacturers and designers of defective products, to architects and subcontractors who caused injury, we work tirelessly to hold the responsible parties accountable and help you receive the compensation you may deserve.
