When someone else's negligence causes you to suffer injuries in a Pennsylvania elevator shaft accident, you may be left with staggering medical bills and an uncertain future in the workforce. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the construction accident, you may be entitled to seek a third party liability claim.

A third party liability claim can be especially helpful when your Workers' Compensation claim isn't able to fully account for the losses you've experienced from your elevator shaft accident.

A Philadelphia construction accident lawyer will carefully examine the facts in your case to determine if you have a valid Pennsylvania construction accident claim against a third party.

While you cannot sue your employer if you are injured in a construction accident, a case for third party liability can hold others accountable. If a manufacturer, maintenance company or general contractor was negligent in any manner and it contributed to your elevator shaft accident, they may be held at least partially responsible for the injuries you sustained.

If you and your lawyer are able to prove the liability of the third party, you may be able to seek compensation for the following:
 

  • Medical expenses - doctor, hospital, surgery, appliances and prosthetic devices;
  • Rehabilitation/therapy - vocational, physical and occupational;
  • Pain and suffering; and
  • Disfigurement.   


Speaking with a Philadelphia construction accident lawyer should be your next step if you have suffered serious injuries as a result of an elevator shaft accident on a Pennsylvania construction site.

If you have been severely injured in a Philadelphia elevator shaft accident, you shouldn't have to suffer and pay for expensive medical bills that were caused by another person's negligence.
