Construction Accidents Are Common Turn to a Construction Accident Attorney for Help

Working in construction means taking on a certain level of risk in working conditions. According to the United States Department of Labor, construction workers had 1,056 deaths in 2022, an 11% increase from the previous year and the second most occupational deaths of any industry. Employers are expected to account for this risk and protect their employees as best they can.

When your employer fails to protect you in the case of a construction site accident, turn to our personal injury firm for support. The team at our personal injury offices in Scranton and Stroudsburg are ready to help.

What Are My Legal Options?

Just like with car accidents and other forms of personal injury, a personal injury lawsuit is one possible option after you've been hurt in a construction accident. However, unlike car accidents, workers' compensation offers another avenue to securing fair compensation after your construction site injury. 

Workers' Compensation

Workers' compensation is a mandatory, employer-funded system to compensate employees for work-related injuries. In the event of an injury on the job, most construction workers are eligible for workers' compensation benefits to cover medical expenses and lost wages due to disability. However, workers' compensation benefits can fall short if the employer is not adequately insured or the insurance company denies your claim.

Personal Injury Lawsuit

A construction accident that's caused by employer safety violations can lead to serious injuries or even fatalities that may have been avoided. In these cases, a personal injury lawsuit can provide additional compensation that a workers' compensation claim cannot, including punitive damages for pain and suffering, wrongful death, and long-term losses. A personal injury lawsuit can be crucial for injured workers to receive full, fair compensation to account for their medical bills, lost wages, and other loss of stability due to an employer's negligence.

Seek Medical Attention

You should always seek medical attention after a serious accident. Just like in car accidents, sometimes minor injuries become serious in the days following. Always visit a medical professional to ensure you receive the care you need and create a clear record of your injuries from the start. 

Tell Your Company

You should notify your employer, once you've been seen by a doctor and addressed all serious medical concerns. Promptly reporting the accident can prevent you from missing potential deadlines to recoup damages and file a compensation claim. It also creates a record of the incident which can be beneficial to your construction accident attorney.

Gather and Maintain Evidence

Review the construction site and gather information like photographs of the scene and any damage that was done, witness statements and contact information, your medical records, and your communication with your employer. Having this information readily available can immensely help your attorney and your case.
