Were you injured on this job? In most case, when a worker is injured on the job, it is the result of a workplace accident. If your employer provides workers' compensation benefits, you are entitled to medical coverage and lost wages, as well as death, scar and amputation benefits and other types of benefits.
However, in some situations, employers and their insurance company may attempt to deny workers' compensation benefits, leaving the injured worker with medical bills and limited income. If you suffered an injury at work, turn to an experienced Pittsburgh workplace accidents attorney. This may be the only way to receive the benefits you deserve.
At Dugan & Associates, P.C., our Pittsburgh common workplace accidents attorneys share more than 50 years of combined experience helping people injured in workplace accidents protect their rights and recover the compensation they need to move forward.

Common Workplace Accidents and Causes
There are many types of accidents that can occur in the workplace, especially for those who work on construction sites and other dangerous jobs. But, even if you work in what appears to be a safe office setting, you could be at risk of slipping, tripping and falling, causing sprained muscles, broken bones or a back injury.
The Pittsburgh common workplace accidents attorneys at our firm have successfully represented thousands of clients with claims involving accidents and causes, such as:
- Motor vehicle accidents at work
- Falls from ladders
- Falls from scaffolding
- Unsafe flooring conditions
- Heat or electrical burns from explosions
- Using defective equipment
- Inadequate danger warnings
- Slip-and-fall accidents
Is Someone, in Addition to Your Employer, Responsible for Your Accident?
Sometimes common workplace accidents occur due to the negligent actions of someone other than your employer. If you were injured at work from someone else's negligence, you will likely be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. In addition to that, we may also be able to pursue a third party liability claim against the manufacturer of defective equipment, a careless contractor or other party responsible for your accident and resulting work-related injuries.
Our Pittsburgh common workplace accidents attorneys will take time investigating the circumstances surrounding your on-the-job accident to determine whether filing a personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation for pain and suffering, as well as medical bills and lost wages, may be a possibility.
