Workers' Compensation Lawyer For Heavy Equipment Accidents In Pennsylvania

Accidents involving backhoes, trucks, front-end loaders, cranes and other heavy equipment can result from a moment's inattention, but the aftermath can last a lifetime. Whenever you suffer a serious on-the-job injury, it's important to seek help from an experienced workers' compensation lawyer.

At the Law Offices of Katherine L. Niven & Associates, PC, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, we represent workers who are injured in construction accidents. Founding attorney Katherine L. Niven served as chief counsel for the Pennsylvania Bureau of Workers' Compensation and was a Pennsylvania workers' compensation judge.

Workers' Compensation And Construction Equipment Accidents

Regardless of who was at fault in the accident, you are entitled to benefits from Pennsylvania workers' compensation whenever you are injured on the job. You may also have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit, depending on who caused the accident.

While you generally cannot sue your employer or anyone who works for your employer for an accident that occurs on the job, you can sue people who don't work for your employer. For example, if the operator of the heavy equipment worked for a different company than yours, you could sue that person's employer and their insurance company. If the equipment was defective, you could sue the manufacturer.

Our lawyers will review your case and help you recover the maximum compensation from all sources, including workers' compensation and the civil justice system. The sooner you contact us after an accident, the sooner we collect and preserve evidence of liability.
