Unfortunately, injuries associated with an elevator shaft accident in Pennsylvania can be severe. This is because many accidents involve falls and crush injuries from the elevator. When these types of accidents take place, it can be devastating to the victim, not to mention family members.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or killed in an elevator shaft accident, you may be able to seek damages through a Pennsylvania construction accident claim. A Philadelphia construction accident lawyer can determine if your injuries are the result of someone else's negligence other than your employer, and if you should pursue a third party liability claim.

Chances are your attorney may have represented other construction accident victims in the past with injuries similar to yours.

The most common injuries to sustain in an elevator shaft accident include:
 

  • head injury;
  • multiple broken bones;
  • brain damage (TBI);
  • spinal cord injury;
  • amputation/limb loss (from crush injuries); and
  • death.  


Understanding what your legal rights are and if there is the potential to file a Pennsylvania construction accident claim against another party such as a manufacturer or general contractor, requires the help of an experienced Philadelphia construction accident lawyer.

No matter what type of  Pennsylvania construction accident you or a loved one has been involved in, if it has resulted in serious or permanent injuries then you may be entitled to recover damage for them. Consulting with a Philadelphia construction accident lawyer should be your next step.
