Spondylolysis is a common injury for construction laborers who suffer back lower pain due to mishaps on the job. If you're injured in a Pennsylvania construction accident, you can't sue your employer. Contact a Philadelphia construction lawyer to get more information on how the rules for Workers' Compensation specifically apply to your case. 

Workers' Compensation exists as a mediator between employee and employer, and you are limited to the benefits you are awarded by the Workers' Compensation process, which is overseen by the Pennsylvania Bureau of Workers' Compensation.

When a product or piece of equipment you are required to use on the job fails to perform properly, your health and physical well-being may suffer as a result. Spondylolysis occurs when there are cracks in the bones that surround the spinal cord and is often the result of over-extending the back a repeated number of times or from a high-impact incident such as a fall in a construction accident. 

If your injury was caused by negligence or by defective machinery or equipment, contact a lawyer who can help you file a third-party liability claim. You may be eligible for compensation for your injuries beyond Workers' Compensation, but you won't get those damages unless you and your attorney fight for them.

If you've been hurt in a Pennsylvania construction accident that was caused by a defective product provided by a manufacturer, contact a Philadelphia construction lawyer today.
