Helping Injured Construction Workers
Working at a construction job, you might take it for granted that the highest safety standards are being maintained. As an individual passing by a construction site, you may equally give little care to safety issues, trusting that the contractor overseeing the project is ensuring safety for everyone who passes by the construction site. Similarly, industrial enterprises and factories sometimes overemphasize production at the expense of safety. When someone is injured as a result of a construction or industrial accident, it is nearly always preventable.
Unfortunately, industrial and construction site accidents are realities and serious injury is often the result. To get legal assistance aimed at helping you recover financially as you recover physically, contact Conlon Tarker, P.C. in Butler, Pennsylvania.
More Than Workers’ Compensation:
- For an injured worker on a jobsite, worker’s compensation is typically the first avenue of recovery. However, workers’ compensation is limited to wage loss and medical coverage, and does not address pain and suffering. While Pennsylvania law precludes an injured worker from suing his employer for pain and suffering, others contractors, property owners, or additional factors may have caused the incident. In these instances, you may have claims against others outside the workers’ compensation context.
- When another contractor, a property owner, or a defective product causes injury in the workplace, we can develop a third party action against those responsible, in addition to your pending workers compensation claim, to ensure you are fairly and completely compensated.
Construction Accidents and Product Liability:
- Often injuries suffered at construction sites and industrial settings are related to defectively designed or manufactured products and machinery. Malfunctioning machinery, faulty equipment and tools that do not offer proper safety or warning labels are all related to product liability. You may have other remedies beyond workers’ compensation, and we are ready to explore them.
