Construction Site Accidents

Due to the dangerous nature of construction, on-the-job accidents typically result in greater, more serious physical injuries. At Trinity Law, we know that workplace injuries affect more than the injured worker. Entire families often feel the financial and emotional strain caused by physical injuries. For more than 30 years, our attorneys have helped injured construction workers in Lancaster, York and the surrounding communities recover the compensation they need to treat their injuries, support their families and move forward with their lives.

Pennsylvania Construction Injury Lawyers

If you have been injured in a work-related accident, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Under Pennsylvania law, workers’ compensation will cover your medical costs and pay you a portion of any wages you lose as a result of your injury.

When permanent work limitations make it impossible to return to manual labor jobs, many construction workers are unsure how they will support their families. At Trinity Law, our lawyers care about our clients and their futures.

Our attorneys look at the long-term ramifications of our client’s physical injuries and ask themselves how this injury will affect our client’s future. Once we understand the severity of a client’s physical injury and whether that injury will prevent him or her from returning to work or limit his or her earning potential, we pursue workers’ compensation benefits that help provide our clients with the resources they need.

Common causes of construction site accidents include:

  • Defective scaffolding
  • Ladder falls
  • Equipment failure
  • Collapsing trenches
  • Truck accidents
  • Defective machinery
  • Improper equipment guards

At Trinity Law, We Have Your Best Interests At Heart

After you file your workers’ compensation claim, the insurance company will assign a case manager to oversee your case. It is important to remember that the case manager works for the insurance company — not for you. It is their job to close out your workers’ comp claim as quickly and cheaply as possible. Your lawyer should negotiate and deal with the workers’ compensation case manager — not you.

At Trinity Law, we make sure insurance companies take our clients’ workers’ compensation claims seriously. While it may be necessary to be examined by the insurance company’s doctor, it is always advisable to get a second opinion from an independent physician to ensure that the full nature and extent of your injuries is understood. We have a wide range of doctors and specialists who can accurately diagnose you and provide expert testimony as to the extent of your injury.
