Construction Site Accidents

Builders and workers in the construction trades in Pennsylvania are typically covered under Pennsylvania workers' compensation insurance in cases of injury on a construction site. Under the law, injured workers seeking workers' compensation benefits forfeit their right to sue their employer for additional damages, except under specific circumstances.

Lawsuits Against Other Liable Parties

Construction accidents don't just happen on their own. There is typically a case against others such as the property owner, a manufacturer of dangerous or defective equipment or another subcontractor working on site. If your injuries or loss of a loved one can be directly attributed to negligence on the part of another party other than your employer, you are entitled to seek additional financial damages through what is referred to as a third-party lawsuit.
