Because of the presence of large, heavy machinery, scaffolding and unfinished multi-story buildings, accidents at Pennsylvania construction sites are rarely minor. The head trauma, broken bones, back or neck injuries or other severe effects of your construction site injury may have left you with serious concerns about your and your family’s futures.
Construction companies are responsible for securing their sites and making them as safe as possible for the employees who work there and for ensuring injured employees receive the proper care and compensation for their injuries. However, your employer may have failed to provide training to you or to other employees, leading to your injuries. Poorly-maintained scaffolding may have collapsed, resulting in a fall. Your employer or its insurance company may question the validity of your claim or the extent of your injuries and deny your workers’ compensation benefits claim in part or in whole.
