Pursuing Compensation For Your Construction Site Injury
Construction workers face the possibility of a serious injury every day they go to work. A serious job-related injury may eliminate your ability to earn a wage, burden you with medical bills, and may lead to ongoing pain and potentially a permanent disability. Your entire family could be affected.
Stapp Law, LLC, provides professional legal counsel and representation for workers who have been injured during the course of their employment in the construction field. Although workers’ compensation provides some relief for construction-related injuries, there are cases when it is simply not enough to compensate for the degree of loss suffered by workers in Williamsport and throughout our central Pennsylvania area.
In certain circumstances, you may be able to pursue compensation for damages related to the construction accident that go above and beyond the provisions set forth in the workers’ compensation system. As an experienced workers’ compensation and personal injury lawyer, I can help you obtain the full benefits you deserve.
Unsafe Job Sites Contribute To Construction Worker Injuries And Deaths
One in 10 construction workers is injured on the job each year, and approximately 1,000 suffer fatalities. Sadly, most of these injuries and deaths could have been avoided if proper industrial practices were in place. Major contributors to construction work-related injuries include:
- Inadequate safety training and contingency planning
- Employers that fail to provide employees with safety gear
- Defective or poorly designed equipment, including ladders, electrical equipment and scaffolding
- Negligence of other contractors working on the site
- Negligence of property owners
