What sort of conditions lead to a construction site accident in Pennsylvania?


A: There are several conditions that could lead to a construction accident in Pennsylvania. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries in a construction accident in Pennsylvania, you should speak with a Philadelphia construction accident attorney.

Your attorney might be able to help you file a personal injury claim against any negligent third parties including property owners, equipment manufacturers, contractors and engineers that contributed to your injuries.

Hazards that Could Lead to a Construction Accident in Pennsylvania 

Some common factors which often lead to a construction accident in Pennsylvania include the following:

  • unstable elevations such as scaffolds, which can cause workers to fall;
  • falling or moving machinery, which can strike bystanders;
  • electrical malfunctions, which can lead to electrocutions;
  • exposure to chemicals and asbestos, which can cause burns or lung disorders;
  • defective or unsafe equipment, which can lead to burns, lacerations and other trauma;
  • an unprotected trench, which can lead to drowning, suffocation or death; and
  • failure to comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations. 

Those in charge of construction sites are required to maintain a reasonably safe workplace. When OSHA regulations are not followed or employees are not properly trained, accidents will occur and negligent parties should be held accountable.

An experienced Philadelphia construction accident attorney will review your case to determine who should be held accountable for your injuries.

You might be entitled to compensation for:

  • current and future medical expenses;
  • lost wages;
  • pain and suffering;
  • altered quality of life; and
  • other expenses related to your injuries and recovery. 

Even if you are receiving Workers' Compensation, you should still speak with a Philadelphia construction accident attorney to see if you have a valid third party claim, as Workers' Compensation may not offer enough if you are facing a serious or permanent injury.
