Working on a construction site is among the most dangerous jobs in the world. Accidents happen all the time, and in many cases workers are severely injured, or even killed as a result. Though as an employee you are entitled to workers’ compensation for any injury that you suffer in the workplace or as part of your work responsibilities, the compensation provided by workers’ compensation is rarely enough to provide you with all that you will need to pay for your expenses and losses. A construction accident attorney from the Philadelphia law firm of Bochetto & Lentz can help get you compensation for your injuries by filing a personal injury lawsuit against others who may have been at fault for your accident. They have the experience you need and are dedicated to getting justice for those who have suffered as a result of the negligence of others.

There are a number of common construction accidents that can result in serious injuries. These include:

  • Construction accident falls
  • Burns
  • Electrical injuries
  • Automobile collisions at construction sites
  • Scaffold injuries
  • Crane accidents
  • Trench accidents
  • Construction equipment accidents
  • Impalement
  • Welding accidents
  • Ladder accidents
  • Elevator accidents
  • Structural failure
  • Building collapse
  • Supervisor negligence
  • Fork lift accidents
  • Nail gun accidents
  • Dumpster accidents
  • Gas explosions

Not only can these and other accidents result in lost wages and time away from work, but they can also lead to tragic deaths. These accidents can be caused by a number of different factors, but when they are the result of negligence on the part of a property owner, a construction manager, an equipment manufacturer or any other party associated with the construction site or project, then the dedicated attorneys at Bochetto & Lentz will fight for your rights, putting together a detailed and compelling case that will fight to get you the compensation that you deserve for your medical costs, your pain and suffering, your lost wages and the loss of future earnings.

It is important that those who have been injured in a construction accident work with an experienced construction accident attorney who is familiar with this area of law. Generally speaking, construction employees are not able to sue their employer for damages suffered on the job because of the existence of Workers’ Compensation, but there are many third parties that may have been negligent and whose actions or lack of care contributed to the injuries suffered.  Owners of a site, other contractors and a number of other parties are responsible for ensuring that appropriate safety measures have been taken, and failure to take precautions such as checking that safety specifications are being followed or properly training their employees may make the liable for the injuries that you have suffered. The attorneys at Bochetto & Lentz will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your construction accident injury to make sure that we have a comprehensive understanding of the specifics of your case, and will advise you as to what your best options may be.
