Injuries from falling objects are all too common accidents at construction sites. Construction workers are at the greatest risk for this type of injury because of common work materials such as scaffolding boards, power tools, cans of paint and bricks. Often, being struck by a falling object can result in broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, internal injuries, permanent mobility issues, loss of limbs and even wrongful death.
If a falling object at a construction site has struck you, you may be eligible to receive Workers’ Compensation benefits as well as the recovery of monetary damages. Our firm has experience representing victims who were struck by materials or tools at construction sites. Our Philadelphia construction accident lawyers can provide excellent representation to these victims.
If you or a loved one is injured in a construction accident, you may be entitled not only to Workers’ Compensation benefits but also have the right to file a “third party” claim.
“Third party” liability includes a person or company who is not your employer. Often, third parties include general or sub-contractor, the manufacturer of defective or unsafe construction equipment, or any other type of third party who contributed to the injury because of misconduct or negligence. For these reasons, it is in your best interest to have an attorney or law firm representing you, allowing them to handle all aspects of your construction accident case.
