Construction Site Accident Lawyers Erie, Pennsylvania

Skilled Lawyers Go to Battle for Clients Injured in Construction Site Accidents in Erie County, PA

A construction site is a veritable minefield of dangers that can cause serious injuries both to construction workers and others who may be present on the construction site. In fact, construction-related accidents and injuries are more prevalent than in any other United States industry. This is why the federal government has developed such a detailed set of safety regulations that should be followed closely in order to prevent construction site accidents and injuries. Despite this, construction companies and other interested parties may be more concerned with making profits than ensuring the safety of those present on the construction site, and are often financially motivated to disregard important safety regulations.

Claims to recover compensation for construction site accidents can be particularly complex because large construction sites typically involve many different companies working together to finish the end product. Any one or more of these companies could have been responsible for the circumstances that caused the accident. Our Erie, PA construction site accident lawyers have the expertise necessary to explore every possible avenue to recovering compensation that fully accounts for the expenses related to your injuries. Call our offices today to schedule a free initial consultation to tell us what happened in your case so that we can begin formulating a strategy to secure the maximum compensation available in your case.

Dangers Inherent to Construction Sites Cause Often-Preventable Accidents and Injuries

Construction sites are notoriously dangerous, and construction site accidents that result in devastating injuries can easily occur when accepted safety standards developed by OSHA and other regulatory entities are not carefully followed. Common types of construction site accidents include:

  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Forklift accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents, which can cause injuries that are magnified by dangerous objects in the vicinity
  • Fires and explosions
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals or toxins
  • Falling from other equipment, platforms, or ladders
  • Crush injuries sustained through contact with construction vehicles
  • Electrocution caused by exposure to unsafe electrical wiring and other electrical equipment
  • Being struck by a heavy and improperly secured falling object

Regardless of the type of construction site accident in which you were injured, our dedicated team of lawyers can explore every alternative to recovering compensation in your case. Importantly, we have the resources necessary to simultaneously pursue claims against a number of potentially responsible parties in your case to make sure all negligent parties are held financially accountable for their actions so that you are fairly compensated.

Securing full and fair compensation after a construction site accident will initially require an in-depth investigation in order to determine the actual cause of the accident. At Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C., we have the resources and skills necessary to successfully conduct these detailed investigations and will fight to recover compensation based upon one of several legal theories, including:

  • Negligence. Many personal injury lawsuits are premised upon a negligence theory of liability, which requires establishing that the responsible party owed you a duty of care, breached that duty of care and that the breach caused your injuries and damages.
  • Workers’ compensation. In workplace injury lawsuits, if your employer was the responsible party, our lawyers can help you pursue a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. Because workers’ compensation benefits are often woefully insufficient to compensate for your actual expenses, we will also investigate to determine whether some other party’s actions contributed to the accident, and can also be held financially responsible.
  • Product liability law. Manufacturers have a legal duty to make sure that their products are reasonably safe for their intended use, and also must warn of any dangers that the product may pose. If your injuries were caused by a defective product within the construction site, that manufacturer (or a designer or other responsible party) may be held financially accountable.
  • Wrongful death. If you lost a loved one in a construction site accident caused by another party’s negligence or a defective product, we will fight to win compensation via a wrongful death case against the responsible party or parties.
