Falls On Construction Sites
Falls are the leading cause of construction site injuries in Pennsylvania and across the country. Many safety regulations are aimed at preventing falls on worksites, but they are not a guarantee of safety-and employers don’t always follow them. At Marzzacco Niven & Associates, we represent workers and other individuals who are injured in falls on construction sites.
In many cases, the workers’ compensation system provides an alternative to litigation in cases of workplace injury. In exchange for the benefits awarded by workers’ compensation, injured employees lose their right to file suit against employers-even when an employer’s negligence contributed to the injury. However, cases have arisen in which an employee may bring a lawsuit for damages. It’s important to work with a qualified injury attorney to determine the best course of action to recover the compensation you need after a serious injury.
