A Pennsylvania construction accident can prompt all kinds of injuries, and when the negligence of a third party contributes to the accident that causes those injuries, you may be eligible for compensation from the responsible person or entity. If you've been hurt, speak with a Philadelphia construction lawyer who can guide you through the process of filing a claim. 

Spondylolysis is just one of the many conditions that construction workers develop after sustaining a serious injury in construction incidents.Spondylolysis, put briefly, is a crack in the bone ring that encircles the spinal cord. Common in athletes who put constant strain on their backs, it can also be the result of repeated back strain on construction sites, such as when a piece of equipment is not working properly and, over time, damages or aggravates the conditions of a laborer's back.

Symptoms of spondylolysis include:
 

  • pain that seems to go down both legs;
  • lower back pain;
  • pain that is worsened by bending backwards, but that may go away after resting;
  • stiffness in the lower back;
  • tingling, needle-like sensations on the skin; and
  • weakness. 


If you have been injured in a Pennsylvania construction accident, speak with a Philadelphia construction lawyer who may be able to help you recover the compensation you need to treat a condition such as spondylolysis. If a third party contributed to your accident in some way, you may be able to recover damages.
