Why Hire An Attorney For Work Accidents Involving Ladders And Scaffolds?
Falls from ladders and scaffolding at construction sites happen more often than they should. As an injured worker, you could likely face a long and painful recuperation. In the worst cases, you may suffer permanent injury.
At Marzzacco Niven & Associates, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, our lawyers are raising a voice as we represent workers who are injured in construction accidents. Certified Worker’s Compensation Specialist Adam Crosier, Jesse Rhodeside, and our team of workers’ compensation lawyers can help you. Our founding attorney Katherine L. Niven served as chief counsel for the Pennsylvania Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and was a Pennsylvania workers’ compensation judge. Continuing with that experience, Attorneys Crosier and Rhodeside will fight for your rights as they help you obtain the full benefits you deserve for a serious injury.
What Happens When A Construction Worker Is Injured In A Fall?
Regardless of who was at fault, you are entitled to Pennsylvania workers’ compensation. If another person was at fault, you may be entitled to additional compensation through our civil justice system.
While you cannot sue your employer in most cases for work-related injuries, you can sue a third party that was negligent. Examples of third parties include:
- Contractors who do not work for your employer.
- Premises owners.
- Manufacturers of scaffolding and ladders.
Anytime you are injured in a construction accident, you should consult with a work accident lawyer as soon as possible. If you wait too long, important evidence you need to prove negligence may be lost.
If you suffer a disability in a fall from a ladder or scaffold that prevents you from working for a year or longer, our lawyers can help you apply for Social Security Disability Income. When injured at work by a third party, you will work with Attorney Adam Crosier or Attorney Jesse Rhodeside on your workers’ compensation claim and simultaneously work with firm owner Attorney Christopher Marzzacco and his team while they handle your bodily injury claim. This one-firm approach keeps the process simple, cuts your costs, and helps maximize your recovery in all claims.
