Legal Assistance For People Injured In Construction Accidents

Construction sites and work zones are inherently dangerous places for workers and standers-by. Safety equipment — such as hard hats, heavy work boots and safety glasses — are not always enough to protect people from serious or fatal injuries in the workplace. If you or someone you love has suffered a minor or major injury while performing construction work duties, contact an experienced lawyer to find out your compensation options.

Helping Injured Construction Workers In Erie, Pennsylvania

At the law firm of Quinn, Buseck, Leemhuis, Toohey & Kroto, Inc., our attorneys have more than 80 years of combined legal experience helping people who have suffered injuries at work and due to negligence of others. We handle workers' compensation claims and personal injury lawsuits for individuals and families throughout Northwestern Pennsylvania.

A work-related injury or illness usually entitles a worker to workers' compensation benefits, such as payment of medical expenses and a portion of his or her income. Additionally, a third-party action — a type of personal injury claim — may be warranted when a defective device or a negligent action caused the injury.

The Most Common Construction Accidents

Construction accidents are common in industrialized areas of Pennsylvania. Common causes of serious and fatal injuries include:

  • Falls and falling objects
  • Dangerous and defective equipment and machinery
  • Hitting and crushing injuries to workers from trucks and heavy equipment
  • Fires, explosions and exposure to dangerous chemicals and toxins
