Representing the Victims & Families of Construction Site Accidents Throughout Pennsylvania & New Jersey

Construction accidents can often be serious and lead to long-term suffering or disability. Victims of construction accidents often lose their limbs, sight, and hearing due to the dangerous equipment and nature of construction sites. Common construction injuries include burns, lacerations, and bone fractures from accidents involving heavy machinery and building materials. Brain injuries, paralysis, amputations, and wrongful death cases are the most extreme in construction accidents and result in large case settlements.

When an injury is permanent in nature, the victim deserves to receive a hefty compensation. Get in touch with Gay Chacker & Ginsburg Trial Lawyers.

Possible Liable Parties in Construction Accidents

In 2012, construction accidents were reported to have caused over 721 fatalities. Furthermore, construction accident statistics reveal that most construction worker deaths on work sites are caused by falls, electric shock, struck by an object, and caught in between. These accidents are often caused by the negligence of general contractors and construction managers but sometimes the parts supplier and manufacturer including the architect can be held liable. The contractors and managers are responsible to provide safety for workers as required by Federal and State laws and it is the job of our Philadelphia construction accident attorney to investigate the incident and bring the responsible party to justice.

Construction-related accidents can include:

  • Burns
  • Crane accidents
  • Ceiling and/or wall collapse
  • Electrical accidents or explosions
  • Falling debris and materials
  • Fall through unprotected floors or shafts
  • Forklift accidents
  • Material lift failure
  • Scaffolding failure
  • Slip and falls

When construction equipment causes an injury, we can file a product liability claim to deal with the insurance companies and their legal teams. Typical construction equipment includes cranes, forklifts, welding equipment, ladders, ropes, cables, scaffolds, construction materials, chemical products, tools, and other heavy equipment.
